Edge shooter

An edge shooter is a gun which fires gliders or other spaceships beyond edge of the pattern, so that it can be used to fire them closely parallel to others. This is useful for constructing complex guns. Compare glider pusher, which can in fact be used for making edge shooters.

This term should not be confused with side shooter, which is Dietrich Leithner's original name for the slide gun.

Paul Callahan found a p46 edge-shooter in June 1994:
