A Commentary on the History of Firearms

"With a good rifle, I could shoot him from here." In Nico's opinion, when you picked sides, you might as well do it properly. "Unfortunately I don't think they make any here."

On the way back from the lookout point to the camp, Daaren remarked, "I don't like guns."

"Oh? Why's that?" He had shown pragmatic attitudes to fighting and killing, so moral objections would have been a surprise.

"They are too loud."

Nico wondered if it was a good or a bad thing that an opportunity to introduce him to the concept of silencers was a long way off.
