Solanii Laiz Pistol

The Solanii Laiz Pistol, designed centuries ago by Solan Starworks, has remained the accepted standard among security personnel and the armed forces since it's inception. It is fairly lightweight, packs a punch but does not overkill, or cause horribly painful deaths from radiation poisoning.

Firing Mechanism

Solid State Laser A solid-state laser is a laser that uses a gain medium that is a solid, rather than a liquid such as in dye lasers or a gas as in gas lasers. In this case, the beam is pumped via a laser diode and uses a high precision Neodymium-doped transparent ceramic lens for excellent accuracy and high power efficiency. The result is a beam capable of inflicting surprising damage to most targets, though it lacks the penetrative qualities of some other EM weapons.

Weapon Mechanisms

Safety: Push in blue panel on side to disable safety and slide blue bar to the top to enable firing. Sliding this bar to the bottom will cause the panel to pop back out, re-initiating safety. Fire Mode Selector: None, Semi-auto only. Weapon Sight: None. Attachment Hard Points: None.
