I love the preview pages. The jack-point shadow talk has always amused me :)

Have you purchased it canray? Is it worth the price of admission?

Neat book, though the Rain Forest Carbine is horrific.

I'm on the cover, but not as the author.  This pleases me greatly as I am a firm lover of Gear Porn of all types.  (Sorry folks that don't like the Gun/Vehicle/Drone Porn, but I am one of the target audience!).  I'd say it is worth it, but I would automatically be biased, now, wouldn't I?

Horrific how?  It is a terror for people with big eyebrows, that's for sure!

14P/-4, availability 5.  Assuming Run and Gun includes basic addons like extended clips and extra firing modes, this baby is going to be the AR of choice for everyone, and it's not that close.  As it stands, it's a pretty serviceable sniper rifle.

Even firing semi auto bursts, it is going to ruin lives.

I take it bad things happen to both shooter and the shootiee of this weapon?

Nope.  Just the target.  It's an assault rifle that hits like a sniper rifle, like the Beowulf.  Load it with APDS and you're looking at a base of 14P with a -8AP so that it shoots through schools.  It's also got a base Accuracy of 7, a laughably low availability, and costs next to nothing.  The only downsides are the small magazine and the lack of BF and FA.

You know what I really loved about Gun H(e)aven 3?

A book with more weapons and combat options called Run & Gun will be released shortly after this book, providing details on these modifications.

This is a sweet book. Lots of sporting rifles and shotguns in particular, some of which are VERY nice. Just an all around great book. I didn't have time to look through in great detail so I don't recall all of the gun names, but that SA Assault Rifle is amazing. It's probably the gun you guys are discussing, but I don't have the book on this pc yet :D

I'm sorry guys, but I really dislike this book.  Not only are a bunch of the weapons really out of place and strange for Shadowrun, but there are some serious balance issues like the one that has been mentioned already.

 :-\

Sorry Catalyst, I really wish I could support this one, but I will not only not be recommending it to my friends and fellow players, but I won't be allowing it in my games.  Yuck.
