Hmm - sci-fi, first, eh?

The Fifth Element
Zorg: Voila! The ZF-1.
[the weapon opens, and Zorg picks it up]
Zorg: It's light. Handle's adjustable for easy carrying, good for righties and lefties. Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick, discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger, three thousand round clip with bursts of three to three hundred, and with the Replay button - another Zorg invention - it's even easier.
Zorg:  ...and my personal favorite - the flamethrower.

Real life has given me experience with many arms, including sidearms, shotguns, grenades both thrown and launched, rifles and machineguns.  By far, my favorite is the Desert Eagle.  When accuracy is derived from the shooter, the weapon can look cool, first!  I've fired the .44, and it was cool, but the grip's a little big, and I have relatively small hands.  I prefer the .357.

If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

A real warrior would ask what the little red button on the bottom is for.
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!

Good one Dave, the ZF-1 is a great weapon.

Favorite sci-fi??  Whatever they were usin' in Dune, with the soundwave blowing things apart.  Those were cool.
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

Brilliant my friend, the best choice yet!

well, not to gloat, but i belive my choise is faaar superior.. 300 rounds of small amunition compared to a fusion gun??

for a more description see:

http://traveller.wikia.com/wiki/Plasma_Weapons

note that the FGMP-15 (tech level 15) incorporates a gravity generator to use it without power-armor.
(only reason i did not choose TL 16 is because itīs not avalible to the imperium.. same is true for the other even more incredible hyper advanced traveller weapons...)



edit: p.s.

For SCI FI have to concur with Coil and Dave:

Light Saber and ZF-1 (the weapons demo of the ZF-1 is probably one of my top 10 sci fi scenes in any movie).

Real life?

Only because I have fired them all AND they belonged to my Grandpa, and now my dad has them.  They will eventually be mine:

Springfiled 1903
M1911
P08 (Luger)
