you needed skill to use them and why Martial came to being ( as used by mars or martial )
and firearm aint a manual thing its power is derived chemically , unless you put a botonet on the end and use it that way
then its once again a martial art or skill
If the worshipers of Mars would have known about Fn Fal 1A1 rifles, hand grenades and ballistics vests don't you think the illustrations and statues would have been revised?
