muskets

ok this may sound a bit old fashioned but think about it

muskets are much easier to make and repair than normal guns as they don't have rifled barrels.

also there ammo is alto eiser to make all you have to do is make a metal ball and the gunpowder rather than make a bullet. plus you can load grape shot into them =]

so yeah that's my idea

basicly they are not very acurate or that powerful (though not the weakest weapon)
but would be cheap and be able to use several ammo types

The only problem is that there probably won't be muskets around in the future, seeing as how there aren't any today. What might work similarly, though, are muzzle-loader rifles. You'd have to have special rules with them, like you can't move and shoot in the same turn because they take so long to load.
