a bit boyish I'll admit, but after a conversation I had the other day about this, I thought I'd post this one up and see what comes back.

My vote has to go to the "bone gun" from eXistenZ

this may be a bit leftfield, but do we think that the Death Star counts?

it is technically a giant gun!

I loved the guns in Dune - the weirding(sp?) modules were very cool. Imagine being able to shout out "muthafucka" and it actually kill someone ;)

Good Choice!

You know i'd completely forgotten about those things!

In the same vain, imagine having a gun which fired a hand that choked your enemies, a la Flash Gordon!

I think that we can allow anime guns in this survey (especially from NGE), I dont see any reason not to!

Though its not very impressive I'm particularly fond of the "gun in a briefcase" from Ghost In The Shell (though its doesnt appear for very long)!

yes they were great weren't they! Cronenberg, what a visionary/madman!

My personal favorite has to be the "bone gun" from eXistenZ, but as it requires teeth for bullets its not quite the kind of gun you can go on a massive killing spree with (not that thats a bad thing)!

Very cool.
