I've seen people in the books use everything from spears and clubs to crossbows (made from automobile springs); the Japanese samurai even had their swords and bows. It's not nearly out of the range of credulity for someone to use a sling - it's hard as hell to learn, but you never run out of ammo for it, and making one is a snap.

As for .44 ammo... I haven't seen a lot of it outside of Pollotta's books (because he usually includes a Webley), but the companions find ammo stores often enough that it shouldn't be hard to pick some up. It would certainly be more common than copper nipples; lead shot wouldn't be hard to make, and black powder is easy.

Coincidentally, this is the third LeMat Doc's had now - he lost his first one (the .36 cal) crossing a river in Cold Asylum and picked up the .44, which he used until recently.

Well I don't know what the rest of you losers are up to, but I'm hanging out in Key West this week. ;-)

The weather is gorgeous.

Yesterday we were out snorkeling on the reef at Pennekamp. Saw a four foot barracuda.

We're down here for the commissioning ceremony for the USS Spruance. I think Sunday we might take the cruise out to the old fort on the Dry Tortugas.

Well lets git her goin.  Given the DL canon, you would have all sorts of armament.  I've only written two of the books but I try to imagine it as realistically as possible.  In "Blood Harvest" the Baron and his best sec men had a small assortment of pre-dark armaments.  They weren't named but it is pointed out that the Portuguese CETME rifles had been crudely refinished several times and their plastic furniture had long ago been replaced by hand carved wood.  The ville was producing black powder and most of the armament on the island were home-rolled single or double barreled rifles, shotguns and pistols.

In the soon to be released "Hell Road Warriors" a Baron sends his son off to fight and gives him his personal Glock.  The weapon had long ago lost its plastic frame a blacksmith had forged a lower grip and receiver out of iron.  There would be a lot of that going on.  In the same book in a trading camp there is a tent with a man hawking pre-dark weapons, next to it a woman selling homemade ones and next to them is a gunsmith who will fix both.

In answer to the question about slings, yes, it takes practice to get good with one, that is pointed out, and they were used by hundreds of islanders in"volley fire" against the ville sec men.  They heroic slingers are neither fast, nor particularly accurate and in practice several try to brain themselves and those around them.

A modern reproduction LeMat that took .44 cal cartridges and a modern shotgun shell chambering. Outwardly it looks the same.
