Trait Name: Never bring a knife to a Gunfight
Trait Tiers: Adept 3 (300 xp), Assassin 2 (200 xp), Adepta Sororita 3 (200 xp)
Effect: The character has learned to forgo melee weapons in close combat, focusing on their guns as both an offensive and defensive tool. If the character is holding a single handed gun he may make a parry attempt with that gun with his Weapon Skill or his ballistics skill. However, doing so means the gun may suffer damage and for each successful parry the user must roll a d10 as though he had rolled a 1 on his damage table.

Suggestions to improve? Yay or nay?

Sounds decent enough to me. I don't know why an adept would have it, per se, since from what I know they're relatively non combative, but I don't much mind. Maybe make a special pistol trait called reinforced, which makes it so that it doesn't take damage from parrying a normal weapon?

I'll agree with Const on this one as far as reinforcing the gun or the like. Perhaps an add on, much in the same way monowire is.

As an adept myself I am inclined merely to hide behind bulky objects or send mechanical wonders to do the fighting stuff for me. Given that a -10 to my BS would put my BS at the same spot (or lower) than my WS I probably wouldn't have much use of that particular element. Again, that is just for the adepts sake. For an assassin or other battle type character that is fair balance.

I did make an addendum to the cost of the Ballistic skill. I also decided to keep it on the Adept's path after seeing how many gunnery traits they really do get. Granted gunnery is not an easy buy for them alot of the traits they can enter into are more ranged instead of melee. I raised the price of it for an Adept as well to correlate with the cost of said other traits.

they do have close combat attachment addons for weapons, and im pretty sure you can parry with your gun. itll just get broken if its against a power field.

It only applies to basic weapons. I really think this should be a universal talent myself.
