guns rockets and atomic explosions

This is the Minecraft gun mod for 1.17.1 we will show as the latest forge is still fairly experimental and there are the least amount of mods for it. This gun mod provided a more realistic and up to date selection of Minecraft guns. From the classic dessert eagle to a rocket launcher that i can only describe as the everything destroyer. By this i mean it shoots a beam that infinitely destroys what is in front of it. Just a tad overpowered right?

You also get a large variety of ammo to go with your weapons. Unfortunately one draw back is the way the gun sits. On the player the rockets seem to just perch on your shoulder rather than in hand like you would expect. They have included the graphics for the pistils and other weapons but this definitely could be one part to be improved.

Over all this mod is good if you want to run a 1.17.1 server with forge with some improvement and bug fixed this certainly could make it up the list.
