With the armoury now filled with EMDs, all the real guns had been stacked into a couple of containers and shoved into the far corner of the room.

But not entirely forgotten.

On the bad days, when he needs to unwind, Becker waits until everyone else has gone, and then he drags the containers out and unlocks them.

He settles down for a few hours and takes each gun apart, checks it over, and performs basic maintenance. His shotgun, of course, receives more than simply ‘basic’ maintenance.

Job done, he locks them all away again.

Until the next bad day.
