I am not big on the standard(stereotypical) lasers and shields (energy based) What are you thoughts on custom made ballistic weaponry? The reason I ask is with in my novel that is still a WIP. A character is going to try and procure a very coveted sniper rifle for a subordinate to replace their older high caliber sniper rifle. A little about the weapon in question. It is a custom built bull-pup built by a machinist on Mars during the end of a war between Martian Colonials, and the Confederation. It was so precise in its crafting and rifling, it can give kill a soft target at 4 kilometers with out fail. Has a 20 round magazine, and fires a special 7mm tungsten bullet from a titanium casing utilizing a variant of C-4 t0 propel the dense metal ballistic. Just wondering what your thoughts are about a precision rifle that is so surgically precise in build and effective ness. Thanks.
