Yes - I seem to recognize the shape! This is the gun that sounds
different every shot, and impressive ricochet sounds are heard every
other shot. Am I right? :-)
Our (European) education in this field is lacking, so the only thing I
know about guns:
"Six-shooter" = "Revolver"; holds 6 bullets, and can be fired over 50
times without reloading when engaging really bad enemy indians or
black hat cowboys.
"Magnum" = "a really whopping big six shooter"; some actors discharge
this weapon holding it with one hand only (exlaiming "make my day" or
such), while mere mortals need 2 hands, ear protection and a good
insurance to fire one. (so I am told)
"Rifle" = Long gun with added precision, unlimited ammunition. Some
guns require strange jerking motions with some lever to get a new
bullet in the barrel.
"Shotgun" = rifle with damage impact comparable with a medium size
self-propelled howitzer. Aiming is optional. Strange bicycle pump
motions are required to keep it in operation.
Please feel free to correct any errors in my perception..:-)
