The Weapons of Logan's Run

The basic weapon of Deep Sleep operatives is "the gun."

The gun is described in the book as having six chambers each olding a different type of charge.

In the comic The Huntsman (Bizarre Adventures #2 Marvel Comics) they were using a six chambered weapon.

In the movie the guns seemed to have an unlimited supply of energy and they only had one setting. Somehow they became known at this point as 'flameguns' thought I never heard that reference in the movie. Perhaps it was jus a term that fans gave the gun.

In the television series The flameguns were called "weapons" and had three settings: Stun, Blast, and Kill. Settings were changed by turning the back of the barrel. The reason was a 'family values' issue at CBS. Logan's Run was a 'family' show thus the word "Gun" had certian connotations and could not be used.
