    The GM of the WWII game I'm in (not Roger's game) also uses and recommends the Hans Christian Vortisch Investigator's Weapons series. I looked up my character's guns for that campaign in the GURPS books (because I have them), and the GM was rather dismissive of them until I happened to mention they're by Hans. There was an expression on the GMs face that defies my abilities to describe, sort of a cross between egg-on-face and dawning-realisation?
