I picked a trillby because it fit the scout's head a bit better than the fedora I was making.
The new gun solves a few problems with my old guns. As for the theme, the Thompson submachine gun had the nickname "Chicago typewriter" and journalists need a typewriter, so I made what I envisioned a Boston shotgun variant would be like, but still similar in how it works to the scout's scattergun.
Still not sure what to make as a melee weapon. If someone has an idea, tell me otherwise I'm going to make a tripod.
