Many of us have seen light guns being used on console game machines such as the Sony Playstation and Sega Dreamcast. The PC platform has traditionally been sorely lacking in such a device. Fast and furious gun slinging arcade action has never been complete without the feel of a trigger. Hunting games were plain lame using the mouse. ACT-LABS, known for its cutting-edge gaming peripherals such as the Force RS, acknowledges this fact and has come out with the PC's answer to its console counterparts, the ACT-LABS Gun System (ACT-LABS GS).
