Cane Venator's fission pistol.

Added two choices (Mal Reynolds' pistol and the Terminator's phased plasma rifle).

Anybody know how to allow voters to change their votes?   Maybe I should ask the DNC.

That last will only help you add more votes.

From a favorite comedy. These are really good blasters. Mars Attacks!

The M41A, because it was a great gun in a great movie.  Could have used an optic, but those weren't that common when Aliens was made.

Two others, not on the approved list...

The Bergman adapted for use by The Mandalorian.  Looks great on screen.
The pistol used in the first season of Battlestar Galactica, the Smith L-frame modded with a shell.  Love that you could spot a Hogue or Pachmayr grip from time to time.
No, I'm not mtnbkr.  ;)

Cane Venator's fission pistol.

It's just a Thompson/Center Contender frame. Finding the barrel is the hard part. :P

I voted the M41 Pulse Rifle as well.

Although when Yugo M53 kits with intact barrels were only $300, and surplus 8mm Mauser was about the cheapest centerfire ammo you could find, I was sorely tempted to get a cheap eBay stedicam arm and harness and try and make a m56 Smartgun replica.

However, the machining and metalwork needed to make a semi-auto build out of the Yugo kit was and still is way beyond my abilities. So I passed.

Still should have bought the Yugo kit. I could have flipped it for major profit in just a few scant years.  =|
I promise not to duck.

What is a Cane Venator?  Web search did not uncover anything helpful.

It's a single-shot, breech-loading pistol resembling a Thompson/Center Contender that uses a fission reaction to convert a rod of uranium into high-velocity plasma, that may or may not exist entirely in my own mind.
