yeah, but the energy would be spread in a pattern of round shot compared to a single sharp point of a rifle shot.

Besides that… This is an anime…

It's an anime, yes, but one thing you can count on from Gunsmith Cats is the sheer realism of the weaponry. Sonoda did a lot of research for the series. (Except the cars. I mean, it's a real car but in Bonnie and Clyde the driver's side is the wrong side for the first two issues) It makes me wonder what the hell was up with that lovely, wonderful quote.

Nobody else had an urge to marry Radinof after that?

Not really. Go look at your body. There is not much area in the body. The human body is very compact.

A 00 Buck can contain up to 15 pallets. Going at a speed up to 1500 ft/sec all hitting the body at the same time. If a person with body armor get hit with a 00 Buck, that person won't be doing that much back. The person will be in a great deal of pain if not unconscious. Basically if you get hit by a shotgun (buck or slug) you won’t be getting up, armor or no armor.

When they translated to US, they had to flip/reverse the image. Right is left and left is right. That is why you see the driver side in the wrong area because of the flip.

As for Kenichi Sonoda realism of the weaponry, all I can say is that he is very detail on the drawing of firearms. Unfortunately he doesn’t know that much about firearms and tactics.

Still Gunsmith Cats is a great read and I do enjoy it a lot.

Whatever. I still think Radinov is one hot-momma. Especially before she cuts her hair really, really, short, though that is sexy in it's own respect. (Says the raging bi-sexual. Me like butch!) What can I say? Radinov really, really appealed to me.

No he doesn't. What is his experience in small arms? I doubt he has any. He can’t even own a gun in his own county. How can someone have experience in small arms if they don’t even own or fire a gun. It’s like the blind leading the blind.

They had a trip over to america and test weapons there.

Another thing to remember would be these are police issue weapons. Not as powerful as normal ones. The shot gun was probably using rubber peletes and less powder than standard shells. But admitadly it should have done more to her...

Its in another thread....

Do you mean beanbags? Yes beanbags are use in situation where lethal force is not needed. All police’s shotgun are chamber in 00 buck or slug. Beanbags are not something they carry in their police cars.

Going to a three day field trip does not make them a gun expert.
