I like this gun. It's a little old fashioned, but it has a certain kind of charm. And S&W knows how to make a good revolver too.
Yeah, I really like it. Thanks for letting me blow your head off so I could keep it.

S&W designed the Stein & Wasserman "Tri-Star" Revolver special-load revolver as a "compact yet practical multi-munitions delivery system." What this means in plain English is that the Tri-Star is a big, double-action, revolver style handgun which fires .410 shotgun ammo.

Although it is capable of firing shotshells (2D6/1D6+2/1D6) and slugs (3D6+1), the Tri-Star is best known for loading Triplex shells which pack three #000 buckshot pellets (2D6 damage each). When using this load, treat each shot as a "3 round burst", rolling 1d6/2 to see how many buckshot hit and then rolling each hit randomly. Stein and Wasserman also markets a 100eb lasersight which is specially made for Tri-Stars packing the #000 Triplex: The sight projects a red dot which marks the point of aim, and a surrounding circle which marks the area into which the three pellets will spread. Because of the visually distinct style of these sights, the Tri-Star has seen a great deal of use in media entertainment.[1][2]
