There is still hope for alteran handguns I mean they are in atlantis they should be hundreds of them laying around and if there arn't any in atlantis maybe we will find them later on in this season or the seasons to come in some outpost. I mean sg-1 had gould guns why can't atlantis have alteran guns instead of the wraith ones or both. But hopefully there is still hope.
How do you know they are in Atlantis? I don't recall that ever being said or even discussed on the show.

no i meant the Earth team is in atlantis not the guns. the guns could or could not be in atlantis. I was saying if they(the guns)are not in atlantis maybe we will find them in an atlantian outpost or something later on.

Oh. Well thank you for clearing that up and yes I would agree with you that if they are not in Atlantis then they may be in an outpost. biggrin.gif

why would'nt they be on atlantis i mean think about it do we set up any sort of military or even scientific
base without some sort of weaponary to hand i mean most bases or labs have at least security personel
with weapons so surely there is some sort of armory on atlantis

Maybe but there is nothing to say that there is anything left there.

Considering that Atlantis is still not completely explored there is no telling what could be there.

it seems to me if the asurans imitate the ancients they would also imitate ancient hand held weapons
(with maybe a few improvements).so I agree with sg1phantom.I doubt the ancients took all hand held weapons out of atlantis,so it seems to me that they would be in the city perhaps inside a secure room
which you need a security code to enter (which our people wouldn't have)and that is why we haven't got our hands on them yet.perhaps we could cut them out with a cutting torch?

Be sure that the Atlantis team would have cut the door with a cutting torch if that would have been possible, or if such a room existed somewhere and there would have been specific information pointing to it.

The Ancients didn't use security codes that often, because of the whole gene thing. I'm thinking any door could be controlled by the person controlling the rest of the city from the chair.

Too be fair, why would the ancients keep all their weapons hidden on the outter reaches of atlantis when they are more than likely needed near the gate room. So therefore they are never going to find any handguns.

Well, because the Ancients have a very precise and easy-to-use transportation system. People would arm themselves from the armory coming from all over the city, and then use the same transportation to get to the gate room. 1.gif

So therefore, we don't know if they're ever going to find any handguns. biggrin.gif

thats a rather ridiculus thing too say it's a bit like saying because i've never seen an alien it means that they don't exist.atlantis is a big place and hand held weapons could be anywhere i'd also expect there to be a few ancient personal sheilds there too.one thing though is i'd expect any ancient weapon to require the gene to operate (a way to make it so that they don't get to prolific in the show maybe have one for john and a few other people/or perhaps rodney could have it as he can't really use earth weaponary that well)

Ok so why havent they used the very precise and easy-to-use transportation system and transported to the area where the guns are kept? Oh wait cos the only places they can transport to they have already been to. So yea i doubt they will find any weapons.

Well im sorry but i cant see how what i said is anything like your comparison. Im not denying that the weapons exist or that they were not there at one point. I just dont see why they would keep all their hi-tec weapons on the very out skirts of the city where there are no transporters and no where near the gate room.

Because they wouldn't know where the guns were kept. They may have passed by that certain place without even knowing, or it may be located in an area of the city they haven't explored yet. They haven't thoroughly explored the entire city yet. Whether or not there are weapons in Atlantis is up to the writers. They can introduce them in a moment when they're not too convenient, or write them out with a nice "The Ancients took all the weapons with them when they left for Earth".

Yes, maybe they're in the gateroom, underground in one of those little panels that we saw during The Return part 1. Perhaps Sheppard will be trapped in front of the gate, and think "I really need a weapon" and all of the sudden, the panels rise up and there you go.

Yes, that's it... Atlantis must have a basement somewhere, where they kept all their old stuff garbage technology, or maybe they just vaporize what they don't use anymore. 1.gif

Yeah, exactly. I think we all remember Mckay's "How come I don't know about that..."

Such a simple thing as weapons, which are required by any being to survive in the long term, would be marked on the city map. The secret panel was secret, as it was intended to be used by the Lanteans should they ever find the city being controlled by a primitive, bipedal race that spends most of its time figuring out how to waste time.

Weapons would be marked on a map, in big red glyphs; WEAPONS! You don't hide the things that are necessary for long-term survival, do you? Do you hide life-support, shields and power systems? No! Weapons are just as important for surviving in a hostile environment.
