    "i love pistols and this is the best one in the entire game. sure it's weaker compared to rifles and such but the fact it has low recoil even when riding on a bike is ridiculous. definitely a keeper!"

    "i love shotguns and this is surely one of the best weapons in days gone. my only issue is that they take the gun away from you for a part of the game and then you have to wait a few missions to get it back."
