Pip: or take something that’s not normally a weapon. Say, a nail gun. But then you work some silver into the nails.

And maybe bless the silver–

Seras: Hang on. How is that difficult from using a regular gun?

Except that regular guns are more convenient, and we’re all trained in their use, and…

Pip: Okay, okay, I get it.

And once again Seras fails to see the brilliance of Pip’s plan. Sure, Hellsing soldiers might be able to use a gun more effectively, but she forgets that a nail gun can be used for undercover work. Or even better, it can be used for arming the general populace. Think of how many carpenters, construction workers, and handymen they could add to their ranks if they could provide a weapon they were all ready familiar with. With that many troops, Hellsing would truly be a force to be reckoned with. They could even produce some specialty troops that way. Can you imagine the havoc Tim “The Toolman” Taylor could unleash with one of those babies?

No, it wouldn’t be a Tim. The wielders of the nailgun would be a brother sister duo named Richard and Karen. Their codename: the Carpenters.


(And kudos to Erin if she ever uses that horrible joke in a comic.)

The nail gun loaded with blessed silver nails could be used to nail vampires or ghouls to the wall.

Warning…major cheesecake, and probably not very safe for work:

Cera’s new Army of Slayers with common powertools.

I will never look at a nail the same way again… pardon me whilest I drool.

Nail guns loaded with blessed-silver nails loaded could be cheaper in costs when compared to the costs of firearms loaded with blessed-silver bullets. Although Hellsing would probably still continue useing their standard firearms loaded with blessed-silver bullets.

Yeah but think about all the extension cords they’d need to buy for all those power tools. Besides nail guns don’t give you any knock down power nor will a nail likely do enough damage to take out a tagrets heart. Though I have loved watching Seras just nodding her head then leveling him with sarcasm.

Some power tools run on batteries though. The nails guns could be specially constructed: Larger battery operated nail guns loaded with larger sized blessed-silver nails.

Has anybody here ever played F.E.A.R.? The first thing i thought of was the penetrator. Also, i dont believe i’ve ever seen a nailgun that looked like an M4 with yellow grips before. Do those actually exist? They should.

Also, as for the Calvin and Hobbes thing, I’ve never been much of an artist, but that sounds like a reason to start learning.
