What is everyone's position on...

…the legality of phased plasma rifles in the 40-watt range? Should civilians even be allowed to use that high of wattage for their plasma rifles? Do the deer have force fields? What about licensing and registration? Perhaps NFA?

It would be perfectly legal, as there are no regulations regarding devices that shoot plasma. Dial H For Hero Mar 2022 #5

On a somewhat related note, there is now a gauss rifle for sale on the open market!



The EMG-01B. $1,250 and it's yours. Granted, it only has roughly the power of a Red Ryder BB gun, but someone had to build the first one!

Gotta start somewhere, I guess. I’ll pass and look back in on this in a decade; assuming we are all still here.

Our grandfathers were perfectly happy with un-phased plasma, and they beat the nazzies for chrissakes!





(It's funny, I've always remembered that quote as "40 mega-watt" - but a quick google search suggests 40 watt really is actually a lot more reasonable from an energy perspective. And is the correct quote, obviously...)
