I personally like slingshots and laser pistols having the same basic stats. If slingshots were way crappier than lasers, there'd be no reason to give anyone a slingshot, and everyone would have lasers. Since they're the same, players can worry less about equipment's tactical efficiency, and more about what looks cool to them.
Which also turns the game into a Zerg-o-Mania FunFair. Really, all that matters in the game now is who has more, and who gets luckier die rolls. Also, if you used CP, then your worries would be totally diminished. But if you don't, I can see your argument being true, as everyone would have guns that do over 9000!!! d6 damage with a use rating of 1. I'm going to add Pesgores' TekLevels to the chart pretty soon, which should balance things out quite a bit, too. I'm going to add a "silenced" trait to weapons, too, which would balance out the gap between the "slingshot and laser pistol" as well.
