* '''Deconstructed''': There's a reason why most guns use standard sorts of ammunition. The abnormal ammo just doesn't get results and is a bitch to load and fire, as well as requiring a specialized and possibly unwieldy weapon. While Bob's trying to remove a mangled frying pan from his weirdly-shaped rifle after a misfire, someone puts a perfectly normal bullet in his head.
* '''Reconstructed''': Bob's frying-pan rifle is certainly an unusual piece, unwieldy, and hard to carry ammo for. But while often he must rely on more conventional ammo, when he goes up against the Egg-People of Hardshell V, the gun makes him an unstoppable force. Even against regular humans, the surprise and shock-value of a frying-pan bombardment often makes it worth the trouble.
