Bobcat 8XM SASR by ScrewfaceRomeo Bobcat 8XM SASR by ScrewfaceRomeo
Bobcat 8XM

Designed: 2098

Designer: Bobcat Defense ILC.

Users: Federal Systems Protectorate, Free Systems, Various Criminal Elements

Caliber: 8x20mm steel-jacketed railslug

Capacity: 20 rounds

Muzzle Velocity: ~2500 m/s

Action: Solenoid-Actuated Moving-Barrel

RoF: n/a, semi-automatic

Sights: tritium-illuminated partridge-style trench sights

The 8XM Bobcat is an 8mm semiautomatic railpistol, formerly the standard issue sidearm of Protectorate forces. After it's replacement by the Mk. 17 MPDW, Issue Bobcats were supposed to be destroyed. In practice, however, they usually found their way into the hands of rebels, criminals, and the various rag-tag militaries of the Free Systems. The Bobcat is a decidedly average handgun, not to powerful, kinda accurate, with a decent magazine capacity. Ultimately, it's rather unremarkable, apart from being somewhat ugly.


[Basically, the Bobcat is the GLOCK of this universe: ubiquitous, cheap, and easy to find, with very common ammo, but otherwise not particularly spectacular]

Pretty much same here; I hate GLOCKs, but this is not quite GLOCKy...

How could you possibly hate Glocks?

If you'd had loaded handguns pointed at you as often as I have, you'd come to appreciate a manual safety with novice shooters: that thing a GLOCK doesn't have. I can think of a few instances where I would be dead at the moment had the person I was instructing been using a GLOCK (or similar handgun with an in-trigger safety).

Well, you obviously have more experience than I do... I see your point.

Of course, the best safety is the one between your ears. Problem there is that not every beginning shooter possesses that always-active safety at first. Though you should never rely entirely on a manual safety, it's there to potentially catch that one "oops"/slip of the finger. When it comes to new shooters muzzle sweeping me, I'd much rather they had the potential "oops" forgiveness in play rather than the "oops, I shot you" outcome.

You can quote stats till the cows come home, but to me, the GLOCK will allways be a brick on stick.
