    So yeah, people have been referring to those two small weapons as pistols. Then someone pointed out the little "countdown" clocks on the sides. That and the fact that he can hold them by that longer peg makes me think they're bombs.

    Just got him today... After reading all the revelatory posts about them being bombs, I'm thinking they NEVER WERE supposed to be pistols. If so, why are the "handles" so short? I think they were always supposed to be bombs. But in todays world, I bet Hasbro was uncomfortable labeling them as such on the packaging.

    They're both, for extra playability.

    It's a toy that is both a robot and a car. His weapons can be both pistols and guns. Haven't you played with toys when you were a kid and come up with extra features/modes on the spot?

    They're bombs I think...but I don't see why people think that they wouldn't be guns just because the grips are too short? Who's to say that they have to be a specific length? I have a pistol for conceal and carry and with the 13-round mag it doesn't even reach far enough down for my pinkie finger to wrap around the grip. My friend's Walther PPK, the "James Bond Pistol" barely has enough length for three fingers to wrap around it. God forbid you're a large person with big hands.

    So you'd tell me these two guns are actually bombs? I know this is reality vs. toys but again, just because a handle is short doesn't automatically mean they're not guns. We know Hasbro draws inspiration from real life sources to make stuff so it wouldn't be a stretch to think that these are "compact" or "sub-compact" pistols AND bombs that Crosshairs carries.

    They are whatever I need them to be.

    But I think they were meant to be bombs

    I'm not sure if this goes for everyone else's figure, but if I try to have my Crosshairs hold them as guns, they fall right out of his hands due to the short length of the handles. Maybe mine are just a tad small or the hands are just a tad too lose to hold them tightly, but I had no choice but to have him hold them as bombs.
    They also wouldn't stay in the shell/cloak storage spot, so I'm thinking they might be just a tad too small.

    They could also be old school flashlights.
