- —Gene posing with his weapon
The weapon is commonly used by Gene in most fire-fights, usually to wear down enemies and judge whether or not a much more powerful weapon is needed, such as his caster gun. Occasionally, he uses it to intimidate and hold up enemies, and can be seen playfully twirling the weapon around his trigger finger. It is kept in a brown holster attached to Gene's waist, being concealed by his large cloak in most cases.
The design of the firearm is ambiguous - it is difficult to percieve exactly what the weapon is based on. While it features two barrels and appears to be loaded via a break-open mechanism - similar to a shotgun - it has a vertical grip (as opposed to a straight stock prevolent on most shotguns) and appears to be very accurate even at a great range, akin to a handgun.
