"I've come across more and more people who've actually tried reading science fiction and can't make it make sense."
- Samuel R. Delany

Laser Finger  
  Special powered suit add-on makes you even quicker on the draw.  

"Today we're only going to walk around the company, area, and nobody will leave the company area.' The captain wasn't wearing his .45 - unless he carried it as a good luck charm, under his suit - but he had a laser-finger like the rest of us. And his was probably hooked up.
From The Forever War, by Jack C. Haldeman.
Published by Not Known in 1974
