- "Most often he makes use of his Enforcer, a gun that should be part of a Star Destroyer's arsenal rather than a hand weapon."
The .48-caliber Enforcer pistol, commonly known as the Enforcer pistol or the .48 Enforcer, was a projectile weapon developed in limited quantities by the Morellian Weapons Conglomerate, only to be used by the Morellian Enforcers. It was not sold except in the black market, commonly over six thousand credits.
The projectile equivalent to a heavy blaster pistol, the Enforcer boasted eight .48 caliber slugs and produced a cannon like crack upon firing a slug, with the slug itself carrying enormous stopping power sufficient to pierce heavy personal armors and even light vehicles; as was the case when one Barosa Warren demolished a XP-38 sport landspeeder.
With its power though came extreme recoil, with specialized training needed to avoid having the weapon fly out of a users hand with each shot. However, with practice firing the weapon was possible, and with specialized military training - such as that offered to Morellian Enforcers - rapid fire was also possible; though practice was needed to ensure that shots were precise, as rapid firing could lead to erratic placement of shots.
Scoutmaster Barosa Warren used one as his weapon of choice, and due to his training as a Morellian Enforcer was capable of firing multiple shots in quick succession.
