Sometimes you just need to put a bang on it! It may feel like it's not a weapon because we're so used to threatening weapons having a sharp initial sound. I'd add something like that, doesn't even need to be as distinct as a gunshot. Then back it up straight away (literally from when the trigger is pulled) with a friction type sound such as the one which ...

With complex sounds like that I think the best thing to do is break it into its component parts. What is the sound when it's still (if any).

For me if I breaking it down into smaller sounds is what can it a uniqueness that ...

A go to for sound design ideas. For over the top fun, "The Expendables has some really good bits too. For a historical movies, "Saving Private Ryan" and "A Band of ...

I assume you are referring to the Countryman B3, I don't think they make a C3. I would NOT recommend this mic for recording the sources you mentioned above. I have a whole stock of B3s that I use for live theatre reinforcement. They are a little heavy on the high-mids, which is a feature for my use, but I think for recording something more true, you'd ...

I´d go DPA, yes they are expensive, but they are very good and useful for pretty much any field. If not , Voice Technologies (VT 500 or different one) TRAM Tr 50 (versatile, hiding under cloth not toooo good) a Sanken Cos 11 is fine (also good for hiding under cloth)
