I realize this may or may not be the best place to ask this question, but it was the first thing that came up when I googled Firearm forum and I was too lazy to shop around So, I'm going to begin writing a novel. It takes place in an alternate version of the US that has been destroyed by chemical warfare and bombings. The story takes place in the early 2000s, but the bombings and such occured in the mid 1980s. What I've come here for is ideas for weapons that the main characters could use. I want the imagery to be ultra stylized, with mixed western and sci-fi influences and with the characters toting lots of obscure, odd looking real world guns. So, what guns do you think would be visually appropriate for such a set-up?
