  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

A heavy, high caliber single shot, breach loading pistol. It fires special Alchemical rounds that have varying effects. you may aim and fire with one hand without penalty if STR is 17 or above. Otherwise, take a -2 penalty for every two points below 17 your STR happens to be. If STR is 10 or below while shooting one handed, make a REF check (DC15) to prevent yourself from dropping the weapon behind you. If gun is being wielded with two hands required STR is 12. If STR is still below that, take a -2 penalty when firing. The Alchemist's Breachload Pistol must be reloaded with two hands. This takes a move action which provokes an attack of opportunity.

This weapon uses Alchemic Cartridges and shares ammo with the Alchemist's Breachload Rifle of the same size.
