"I believe in three tenets of battle: firepower, firepower, and more firepower. Should the Omnissiah have wished otherwise, he would not have provided me with such a mighty tool as the Razorback. I long for the day in which my entire Chapter can ride to war in transports such as these, vehicles whose rage can be given voice through their sanctified armament."

"Is that an MP5? It is! (Evil Laugh) Now I can solve up to 800 problems a minute!"
"Krukfang pushed the control stick forward and steered Deffblasta down into a straffing[sic] run. The words of Gobstikk came back to him from when the Mekaniak had been teaching the young Krukfang how to fly. Long, uncontrolled bursts, the clever Mek had taught him..."

1: The number of shots that hit when you autofire is (Margin of Success/Recoil). Recoil 0 would mean that INFINITY SHOTS hit each time. Is dat enuff dakka?
2: Never enuff DAKKA.
3: Of course, the maximum number of hits can't exceed the number you fired. This is GURPS, we're not retards. But any grot firin' less den 'finity shotz is mukkin about!

"AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes."
"Of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars."
— Yuri Orlov, Lord Of War
Hitgirl: It's even better than in the picture!
Big Daddy: That's because in the picture, it didn't have gatling guns.

"Each of us six officers had a shotgun and an automatic rifle and pistols. We opened fire with the automatic rifles. They were emptied before the car got even with us. Then we used shotguns... There was smoke coming from the car, and it looked like it was on fire. After shooting the shotguns, we emptied the pistols at the car, which had passed us and ran into a ditch about 50 yards on down the road. It almost turned over. We kept shooting at the car even after it stopped. We weren't taking any chances."
—Dallas County Sheriff's Deputies Ted Hinton and Bob Alcorn, describing the Real Life takedown of bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde.
"Now ladies and gentlemen do you see this gun? It fires 750 rounds of 9mm ammunition per minute. In other words if all of you simultaneously were to rush me, not a single one of you would get any closer than you are now."
The theory goes like this: You pull the trigger on a machine gun until the whole world turns into blood, and it is awesome. You can't argue with that; that's science.
