Changed line 1 from:

Advanced technology not authorized for public use. Rarely seen out of the {{Alliance}} Military’s hands, and for good reason; they’re extremely lethal in the hands of anyone. As seen in Heart Of Gold, Rance Burgess’ model was a silk trigger, active-return bolt laser and a lot lighter than it looked. Unlike Burgess' weapon, Alliance issued version don't yet have the auto-target adjust; his was crafted special.

Changed lines 3-4 from:

Based on evidence from Heart Of Gold, some approximations can be as to battery capacity.

  • 1 shot killed Nandi
to:

The Serenity Role Playing Game text lists the laser pistol as having a 10 shot magazine. However this conflicts with both direct observation of the events in {{Heart Of Gold}} as well as a more detailed analysis of the episode.

Based on evidence from {{Heart Of Gold}}, some approximations can be as to battery capacity.

Changed line 8 from:

DVD time indices are accurate only to the second, giving us a precision of .5s for all measurments. With that approximation, we say that the 5 shot the killed Nandi the 4 fired at Mal were all .5 seconds long.

Added lines 3-13:

Based on evidence from Heart Of Gold, some approximations can be as to battery capacity.

  • 1 shot killed Nandi
  • 4 shots fired at Mal during the ensuing chase
  • 1 prolonged discharge of 4-5 seconds.

DVD time indices are accurate only to the second, giving us a precision of .5s for all measurments. With that approximation, we say that the 5 shot the killed Nandi the 4 fired at Mal were all .5 seconds long.

Operating on the assumption that one "shot" is a .5 second discharge from the battery, we can then conclude that the 4-5 second "slashing" attack was equivilent to 8-10 conventional discharges.

This fixes the lower limit at 13-15 shots per battery. This assumes all shots are of uniform power, as well as other themodynamic and electrodynamic simplifications.

The {{Lassiter}} is the first handheld laser pistol ({{Trash}}).
