Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Araavea
Buffy could always make her own wooden bullets, since weapons made by the Chosen One are so special. Wooden bullets were used in WWI and a wooden bullet should kill a vampire about as well as a stake. I guess that's what she gets for hardly ever going to history class.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from bradsan
Well she could let her ammunition and the gun be blessed by a priest almost as good as holy water. It will cost much damage inside the body especially the heart . It won't kill but yes the staking will be easier.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Harry
Now this is a good idea! I know that the Watchers keep thinking of traditional stuff, but in one of MY favorite universes, The Wandererverse, they used bullets that are engraved with special spells that act as death rounds for demons and vampires!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from brokenmimir
Neat! I like the dealer giving the setting a huge feel without having to bring in characters.

Just as a thought, I've always felt the biggest problem with using guns against the supernatural was the guns themselves. They are loud, and even in a town like Sunnydale I would expect someone to call the cops if they hear a shooting. As a teen she can't get a concealed carry (do they even have those in California?) so she's a police stop away from serious prison time (especially since the Mayor could pressure the judge to put her away for the max). Also, missed bullets go somewhere, and using a weapon that kills your friends and bystanders but only wounds your foes is just asking for trouble. That last point is particularly big with Xander the gunslinger, because his ally goes hand to hand, and she and her enemies are superhumanly fast. Trying to hit a human in a melee would be incredibly dangerous, even for an expert marksman. Trying to hit a vamp fighting a slayer? Just my thoughts on the guns scenario.

Anyway, fun one shot!

This is the Sunnydale police
Department we are talking about. The same force that couldn't figure out who fired a rocket launcher inside of the mall.
Might I suggest you write a fic on the consequences of Xander the marksman missing a vamp and hitting the slayer or witch instead some stuff got moved around rethou. It would be an interesting read.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Runewolf
I like this. It makes sense that Buffy would see the usefulness of guns after Darla, especially given that it's so early in the series, and before any bad experiences with guns.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from GraysonPaladin
Nicely done, and now I'm think how could one do a Gunslinger Girl/BtVS crossover...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AllenPitt
Great premise. Yes, Darla was the only sensible vampire on the show. Slayers are definitely vulnerable to bullets even if vamps/demons aren't. If there had been more like her, Buffy would have had a much tougher time.
How did she GET the weapons and ammo, though? California has some pretty strict laws on this. How did she pay for them? It's not just how effective they are. If stopped by cops, and she's carrying weapons without a permit, she's toast...
Comments from author:
the guns were darla's.
Edit: These are also the same cops that never noticed said blonde girl wandering around the streets with swords, axes, troll hammers, and crossbows nearly as big as she was. Knowing this do you really think that they actually would have tried to arrest her on weapons possession?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
And with Buffyverse vampires it could be as easy as carving a cross into the front of a 9mm or hollow pointing a 10mm and filling it with holy water then capping it with wax to get real hurt on them.

Glad to see Buffy using modern weapons.
