I know that gunslingers have an ability that lets them shoot rifles with one hand.

I seem to remember a ruling that over a certain strength, in robotic or supernatural, that allows characters to effectively hold rifles and large weapons in one hand (w/ no penalties). So you would have, for example, a full conversion cyborg with 4x arms and a large gun in each.

I could have swore this was a rule from the books. If someone could point me to the correct material or confirm what I seem to remember I would extremely grateful!

As always, thank you!

It's also one of the six abilities from the skill Sharpshooting, of which the Gunslinger gets all six. I use the version from Conversion Book One, Revised.

Well, crap... I don't have any of the Heroes Unlimited books. lol

I'm just going to assume it's a not that they can't do it w/o the skill or a description in the gun saying they can.

Heroes Unlimited allows "anyone" to do it, albeit at severe penalties. It also specifies what levels of strength (Normal, Extraordinary, Superhuman, Supernatural) and corresponding PS Scores, are required to fire Heavy Weapons one handed.

It also provided the basis for making Ricochet Shots and other Trick Shooting, without the Sharpshooting skill/special abilities.
