so 12p AP-, DV reduced by 2 per range band. I could get behind that
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

...OK, would an underbarrel Bola launcher be a single breach or muzzle load?

There's no reason it couldn't be either: A muzzle load could operate similar to the USA's 60mm mortar; you drop it down, then use the trigger (more of a lever really) when you're ready to fire. A breach loader would be similar to the M203 grenade launcher; slide part of it forward, insert grenade (or bola package in this case), close it up and fire. I can't remember the stats for it off hand, but actually there's no reason it couldn't use a small clip, say 4 rounds, if the bola package was small enough (think SkyWall 100, but smaller).

...the bolas used are the size of regulation baseball...(well...actually are baseballs one with a grenade concealed in it and the other weighted to balance it out so it flies properly (a "boom bola" as mentioned in R&G). 

The Skywall 100 is pretty large, being basically a shoulder launched pneumatic cannon.  Based on the measurement of the barrel it appears the projectile is a little less than the the diameter of a softball (about 15 CM).  A regulation MLB baseball is about 7.4 CM in diameter.

*Finds and erases all tags, bugs, trackers, etc. before cackling triumphantly.*

I mean, the 'array of colors' is only Red, White and Blue, but I can live with that.
