PLPS-15 Body Pistol

by Rupert Boleyn


This pistol is SolSec's body pistol and ultimate descendant of the .22 pistols popular with some professional assassins in the late 20th century AD. It is made entirely of low profile synthetics and ceramics, and is effectively invisible to TL14- security sensors. The late 3rd Imperium's news and entertainment media often call this 'The SolSec Assassin's Gun', which is somewhat of an exaggeration, as it is standard issue to all of SolSec's security agents who might need one. The PLPS-15's magazine only hold 10 rounds in order to keep the whole weapon as thin as possible to reduce the chances of a 'pat down' detecting it. The damage of '3' for HE(AP) is because of the high TL, if you assume that exposives don't get much better after TL10-12 (as FF&S does for large washeads), just change the damage to '2'.
