@geth: I mean as far as his lethality. Shootout always has a chance to miss every shot he takes, based on what the plot requires how the Man in White is betting. I'm going to get a bit of a subplot going about the nature of his powers and how they relate to the Man.
@geth: Agreed. If they fought with feats and only feats in mind (honest selling + skills), I don't know who'd win. Shootout can pull off impossible shots and his armor would give him an edge, but Trickshot is without a doubt far more consistent.
@geth: Like I said, I've sometimes wanted to write a character fully selling a lethal attack. He's not exactly dead, but not all the way alive either. Everything now hinges on his ability to put a bullet in the Shogun's head (and that's not happening anytime soon, of course). I'm hoping this will be a new motivation for him, as well as provide him with a nemesis of sorts in Ivana.
