    I think it is pretty cool. Certainly wouldn't mind owning one.

    I love it. I think it's just perfect for the Artie-run Warehouse's theme of "old junk that has no reason to work as well as it does, but it does anyway"
    "A society grows great when old men plant trees, the shade of which they know they will never sit in. Good people do things for other people. That's it, the end." -- Penelope Wilton in Ricky Gervais's After Life

    I really love the name more so then the actual gun.

    It is a cool gun, yet those stunned seem to recover far to quickly.
    Science Fiction is an existential metaphor; it allows us to tell stories about the human condition.

    Isaac Asimov once said individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

    Very cool, wonder why they don't have more cool Warehouse gadgets at their disposal.

    I like it, but it could have been done better.

    Some of the rayguns and other items made by amateur Steampunk builders are amazing and far better than a lot of the props on Warehouse.

    That said, I still love all the warehouse props I've seen so far.

    I'm guessing that that's either something to do with the setting they were shot with, or that the short term memory loss caused by it would really disorientate you.

    In some cases, much quicker than others.

    I wonder how long it will take until something big happens and Artie pulls out the Tesla version of an Assault Rifle...it's bound to happen!

    Its awesome, cause you know that the real Nikola Tesla had lots of inventions that he never bothered to patent...

    Its basically a zat, but steampunk which is so much cooler.

    I agree. It seems logical, after the Tesla Coil.

    Why? Did the 'vampires as historical authority figures' angle bother you too? Did you have problems with the Sherlock Holmes/Watson angle as well?

    Not baiting you or anything, I'm genuinely curious.

    Heh, to be quite honest, I'm pretty happy with the vampire angle, seeing as though he's more of the darker, true type of vampire, rather than one that goes all sparkly in sunlight.
