Fallout: Equestria - Ideas on general gun usage
Usage in different races
Earth ponies have to rely on a mouth grip or a battle saddle on all weapons, since they have no means in lifting them in any other way.
Mouth grips are mostly designed with the abilties of Earth Ponies in mind. They have no problem with the kick of the gun, since they are physically more powerfull and resistant then other races. They can handle every firearm up to a medium sized shotgun with ease, using a mouth grip.

"Engi!" The man had a dilapidated medigun trained on him. "What happened!?"
"The RED Spy," he said through gritted teeth, obviously in pain. He was covered in bloody bandages, mainly around his chest and arms. "He ambushed me Twilight, he took the plans"
The sentence hit her like a freight train. She looked around quickly, trying to piece it all together "No...No!"
"Dat's not the only thing he took " Scout's voice was barely audible, but he pointed to the regenerator. A large section was covered in knife marks, and was sparking wildly. "Ain't no respawnin anymore"
"How'd he get in!?"
"Don't know. Doesn't matter. It's all over," Scout said more to his hands than anyone in particular, head clasped tightly. "We're done"
Twilight looked around at the melancholy faces. They had all given up hope. Just like Scout. Even P

At the final chime the doorknob stopped turning and then the door began to shudder, one, two, three times - and then it flew open with a crash and a blue-coated alicorn came galloping into the room. Her face was flushed and the whole of her body was glistening with sweat, and as soon as she was inside she slammed the door shut with her telekinetic magic and barred it.
"Pr Princess Luna?" I said.
"Wait," said Pinkie Pie, her eyes bugging out. "Esther is Princess LUNA?"
Luna was still trying to catch her breath. "Of course I'm not Esther, Pinkie Pie! But I was hoping that I'd find her here." She looked quickly around the room and then sighed in defeat. "She's not here either, is she?"
All the assembled ponies fell down on one hoof and bowed, and I quickly did the same, but Luna waved a forehoof impatiently and we all got

Together Pinkie and I hurried over the surface of the moon towards Luna's castle, the glittering golden sand puffing up with each step we took. We soon left the field of polished black glass behind us, but even so, the castle still seemed an awfully long distance away.
"I thought Princess Luna wasn't on the moon anymore," I said. "Did something happen between her and Princess Celestia again?"
"Oh, Princess Luna doesn't have to stay here, silly!" laughed Pinkie. "She just feels more comfy here than in Equestria." She brought her mouth close to my ear and whispered conspiratorially. "Just between you and me I think she's still a teeny bit embarrassed about that whole 'Nightmare Moon' thing!" When Pinkie said 'Nightmare Moon' her eyes went wide and her face was lit from below like that of an actor in a B-grade horror movie
Sunset - Chapter 1: Dawn A dark and stormy night: the perfect time to tamper with the universe's laws. Or so Celestia thought to herself. She couldn't explain why, despite her long years, but something just felt... right... about the whole thing. Maybe years of loneliness had finally driven her off the deep end? No, she was still quite sane. It wasn't like she was totally alone either. Sure, she had grovelling servants at her beck and call, but they were always far too formal for her tastes.Sunset - Chapter 1: Dawn4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Dear sister," Her Royal Highness, Princess Celestia of Equestria, Regent of the Sun spoke to a dusty old painting on the wall. "In twenty short years, you will return with well-deserved indignation. Curse Nightmare for twisting you like he did!" She slammed a hoof into the wall, knocking the picture of the smiling alicorn off balance. She frowned slightly and nudged it back into place with her muzzle.
The ancient mare closed her eyes and sighed, inhaling the scent of the oil

I am all ears to you,
tell me exactly what I need to do,
you love me too,
our love is true.
High up in your towers,
helping spread truth and power,
giving the ability to cower,
every day every hour.
never leave my sight.
never leave me be.
never leave me.
I might never see you again,
I'm the only one they can depend,
no one can do it but me and then,
I'll never fail you again.
High up in respect for others,
waiting patiently for your only lover,
43 and counting in the covers,
when I gone why do you bother?
never leave me hanging.
never leave me out.
never leave me.
as an homage to you,
your homage is strong,
my only homage,
still with me in my heart,
in the pod,
still with me in my heart,
in the pod,
where you're not.
I cannot apologize any further.

Luna stepped onto the podium and cast her huge cheerful green eyes across the assembled guests.
"Thank you all so much for coming!" she began. "I know the party's only just started, but I thought I'd like to get all the formalities out of the way first, if I may." She turned to the old silver-maned butler standing beside her and looked at him with mock exasperation. "Apparently it's compulsory that every royal engagement have a formal component to it!"
The butler nodded once, his serene expression unchanged.
Luna turned back and continued. "I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to formally thank the Elements of Harmony for their courageous efforts on my behalf. You all risked your lives to undo the great evil that my jealousy and selfishness had wrought and prevented a titanic disaster from befalling our beloved Equestria. So let

Once upon a time, on the not-so-magical-and-actually-quite-fucked-up planet of Earth. There was a US Marine who signed up to defend his country. He was assigned to a fire team, the fire team assigned to a squad and the squad assigned to a company. Together they defended the area surrounding a Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan from insurgents. If only it were that simple.

Sunset - Epilogue: Redemption Someday, in the distant future, the events of that day would have two different names, depending on who you asked, or what book you read. To most of Equestria, it would be known as 'The Battle at Canterlot', while in the small town of Ponyville, it would be known as 'The Reckoning.' Neither of the names chosen for the whole fiasco were wrong, but neither did they get across how seriously it impacted history. For the first time, a commoner was put into a position of absolute authority over the country.Sunset - Epilogue: Redemption4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A couple of days after that pivotal event found the new princess cooped up in her old dorm room, hidden as best as she could under the covers. The sudden increase in size, and lack of new blankets left the goddess exposed to the bitterly warm glow of the sun... her sun. She fought the temptation to just turn it off and stop that tantalizingly warm orb from haunting her with the memories of that day: a day she would never forget.
Why had she done that? W

I stared at the steel-clad ponies, taking a moment to process, what had been said. The Overmare stepped forward and opened her mouth to speak.
"You h-" She was cut off by the cracking report of the lead Ranger's rifle and a bullet punching into her chest.
I tackled Scopes to the side as a missile exploded in front of us and all hell broke loose. I threw me and Scopes through the nearest doorway and bashed the controls with my hoof.
"What now?" Scopes asked over the noise of explosions and gunfire coming from the other side of the door.
I thought for a moment. The weapons security carried stood no chance against the Steel Ranger's armor, so if we wanted to have any hope of escaping we'd have to find more powerful weaponry. I remembered the armory had a couple of sniper rifles that hadn't been used for anything but target shooting since the Stable had been sealed up.
"We need to get up to the armory." I said. "There's
Common Sky - Part 2"Luna, Luna, Luna," said a macabre voice through the darkness. Luna walked down a long, brick-laden hallway, lit up only by her horn and the phosphorescent-like properties of her mane. She had no idea how she had gotten here. She could only feel the bone-cold dampness of the ground on her hooves and throughout the hair on her body. It felt like a dark cellar or a dungeon. "You know that this world isn't a place for ponies such as us. Didn't you learn anything from our little 'vacation,' little one? We are one and the same, and yet, you've learned nothing, NOTHING from me. You really think this happiness and joy will persist? Pah. You're just as weak now as you were then."Common Sky - Part 24 years ago in Romance More Like This
Luna looked upon a big oval mirror in front of her, bolted against the wall of what appeared to be an abrupt dead-end to the corridor. She remembered where she was now.

"It's absolutely wonderful to have you back home, my faithful student," Princess Celestia said to Twilight as she walked with her along the corridor that would lead to the East Wing of Canterlot Castle where the guest rooms were. "I've missed you terribly, you know."
Twilight suppressed a squeal of delight. The Princess had missed her? Oh, the things she wanted to say in reply but all she could was blush crimson and whisper, in a voice embarrassingly heavy with emotion: "I've missed you too, Princess "
"It's such a shame that you can't stay in your old tower," Celestia continued as they passed a series of huge stained-glass windows interspersed with tapestries thousands of years old portraying the history of Equestria. "I'm afraid the renovations are really quite untimely."
"It's alright, Princess," Twilight replied, looking at each of the tapestries thoughtfully as they passe
