    Well, what else could you do with a replica of Squall's gunblade? You couldn't shoot it, you wouldn't want to beat it all up in your back yard on a tree, so what better use than display it, and get it down to mess with occasionally?

    well you could go to a chicken battery farm and test it out on the local chikens..like clay pidgeon shooting.....but using it on your tree in your garden is not such a bad idea!!

    Yeah, but the one in Farscape actually makes sense. The blade separates to reveal the barrel of the gun.

    I personally like the gunblade idea. It kicks some Ultimecia butt in Final Fantasy VIII. If anybody has a site that sells a non functional replica (so as I could use it as a model when I start to begin swordcrafting to make a decent one. {I've been wanting to start, although being 16, my resources would be very limited}

    I've found that, but it'll be a while before I can get around to it. Being 16, my funds are VERY limited...

    i think it would be pretty sweet too...i'll admit, it can't compare to Narsil, (my precious) but it is awesome...

    they had a big discussion on how the gunblade could actually work at another forum...there were dozens of suggestions...like the hammer is in line with the tip of the blade, and a slight shaft runs along the blunt end of it, leaving a very small opening for the bullet to exit. it would be horribly inaccurate, but it would be cool to have one...even if it wasn't functional (good luck making one functional BTW)

    those pics u posted doesnt do the blade justice...if im not mistaken, it had etchings going up the blade (sort of like Hadafang) and a sweet looking pendent hanging by a small chain-like thing comming off the pommel

    anyone interested in making Siefer's Hyperion :cool:

    I happened to stumble upon this formum when searching for images of the real gunblades made in imitation of Squall's from FFVIII and although this forum was no help in finding it, I could not help but wince in pain when I read through 4 pages of lotr fans complaining about how squall's gunblade cannot shoot as it has no barrel. I wish to explain how a real gunblade works so that in future situations when you reffer to a gunblade, you will not be talking about an old pistol with an axe head strapped to it.

    Squall's gunblade DOES NOT SHOOT!!! When bullets go off in the gun, they do not actualy shoot anything. What happens when squall pulls the trigger is a charge is set off inside the revolver, which heats up the blade to extreme temperatures, allowing it to cut through most things with ease and causing a lot more damage than a normal long sword. It does not work long range, you have to use the sword like a sword, even if you set off a charge in the gun. This is what a gunblade is, not a gun with a oversized bayonet.

    1) what does IMO stand for?

    2) I would be interested in a gunblade for historical purposes only.
    In my opinion, I gun is a gun, and a sword is a sword. They each had their advantages. together, they'er pointless.

    Example: Pizza is great, so is ice cream. I have an idea, lets combine the two! It'll be better than ever! :rolleyes:
