He almost never uses it & it just looks silly giving a person like Rodney a gun

I believe Rodney uses the gun more often then Daniel did in the first few seasons of SG-1.

I bet he insists on having a gun. If I was in his place I would insist on carrying a gun as well. Never know when you have to shoot a few wraith.

Um...he doesn´t use it? Reunion, Missing, BAMSR, Spoils of War, Harmony, Midway...

Do you think he will be member of first off-world team without carrying a gun? After everything they have been throught? And he uses it, very often.

And I don´t think it´s even his will, it´s a rule. And since they probably are in war in S4, it´s probably also an order that all members have to be armed by P-90s.

I think its perfectly fine he carries his gun, and he does use it.
In midway though i did like how when bill lee pointed with his gun, rodney lowered bills arm!

McKay has obviously had weapons training and there's no WAY I'd go into the situations he goes into without one!

He's used guns a ton of times but he's not an idiot - in Midway and other eps, he stays at the back. When you're with people who can shoot better than you - YOU STICK BEHIND THEM!! lol!

That was my point. Daniel always had a pistol with him. Mckay has to deal with space vampires, so of course he would be armed

Thankfully tptb now seem to feel the need to make him totally incompetent with fire arms is unnecessary so we in fact have had a lot more of McKay using his weapons.

I will never forgive them for the "clip" incident in season two but since season 3 he has used and been mostly competent with the handling of his weapons.

He has shot Wraith, Genii and a mouse! :P:D

Im pretty sure its SOP to have every person rated for a weapon in a combat zone to be carrying one. But we all know why Rodney carries a gun, its for THE SEXXAY!
