just realized, needs a trigger in the first loop, and needs a second loop to cock it. functionality, bitches(no offense).
but true, how do they reload? either their hoof to eye coordination must be amazing, or a unicorn is following the squad everywhere with a saddlebag full of ammo to be placed in the rifle when a pony needs a reload.
or there is a simple enchantment between their saddlebags and their rifle that involves a portal when they open the bolt to cock the action? that last one is quite clever, and i see saddlebags on him too. one side for ammo, the other for other necessities, possibly? i believe i just figured it out!
