    We have Ray Gun Revival (which sounds like Reagan Revival, but which actually has nothing whatever to do with the GOP).

    [shameless plug - RGR just celebrated milestone Issue #50!]

    If that thing actually works, I might just be feeling a little inadequate right now.

    If not, then I don’t.

    Very steampunk and all, but I prefer a Strohl Munitions BH-209i as demonstrated by Sergeant Schlock here. With great glee.

    I love his books (there’s something almost Irish about his style of writing, maybe it’s that they’re like tall tails or pub-spun yarns) and his covers always have a lovely retro fetishistic quality to them.
    Also I pass some of the places his books mention frequently and I can never look at them in quite the same way again.

    I have a small collection of rayguns.

    Ooh! Oooh! Do you have a Ronald Raygun?

    I’m so very sorry for that.

    Robert, I have a bottle full of rays left over from a previous project. Would you like them?

    Hey all you scifi nuts – rayguns have been around for almost 150 years and are not fictional. The first ray gun was created in the 1860s. It was a heat ray that used a salt crystal for a lens. I lack any clue what it looked like.
