I am able to equip my Empire General with a Handgun for +10pts how many shots does he get just 1 for the gun or does he get 3 because he has 3 Attacks on his profile? i thought Attacks on profile just meant combat and the only way you could get multiple shots is if you were able somehow to get a repeater handgun? which is right a single shot or 3 shots due to profile? please help in a game right now and can't figure this out...we are on a lunch break so i figured why not ask the peeps at WARSEER!!!! thank you!

Read the rulebook on statistics.

As you say it yourself, attacks on the profile are combat only. A shooting weapon only get more shots if it has the multiple shot special rule.

having a handgun on an empire character is a waste of points. however i have repeater crossbows on my DE characters, so who knows.

Depends how you're using the characters - if youre expecting to get charged and can stand and shoot with handgunners, you then get the joy of the S7S being resolved at half range....

My themed DE hunting party list has everything with RXB, because...well theyre just cool :D

I am going to guess he meant Stand and Shoot [S&S] at half range because the character has a pistol- since the character has only an 8" range, that is the range used for the stand and shoot which is within short range for the handguns.

Ooop, yes i meant S&S not S7 ;)

It's about the only use, and even then not a great use....

I could see a use in the 7 heroes setting. 3 Captains with BS5 firing at a skink priest would perhaps cause some ruckus. But it's pretty situational. Never had a handgun on a Captain or a General in a regular game.
