Styrling Man Cannon, .455 Loud Boom

Noting the relative success of the venerable HHG, Styrling designer John Skwigleff pondered:

β€œWhat happens if we make a high caliber pistol as well?”

While not as advanced as the HHG the β€œMan Cannon”, as it has become affectionately known to many a sore-wristed test-shooter, makes up for most shortcoming due to a simple philosophy: Make the gun bigger and BIGGER.

The pistol is not advised to be used by non-IDSOL or non-Cybernetically enhanced people, and as a result, is being marketed to such an audience.
