Smoking Steel Parry
Black Rain (Counter)
Level: Level::2
Initiation Action: 1 immediate action
Range: 30 ft.
Target: You or one ally
Duration: Instantaneous

In times of desperation and immediate danger, an experienced gunslinger finds that their perception seems to slow down, that everything seems to move much slower. As adrenaline surges through their body, a single moment of perfect action is possible...and if they take it, they can achieve the superhuman.

Smoking steel parry allows a gunslinger to accomplish a task most think impossible, deflecting a bullet with a shot of their own. Whenever an opponent makes an attack with a ranged or thrown weapon against you or an ally within 30 ft. of you, after they make their attack roll, you may initiate this maneuver to make a single attack roll with any firearm or ray weapon you are holding. The target of the attack uses the higher of his AC or your attack roll as his effective AC against his attack. Smoking steel parry cannot be used attacks made with weapons more than one size category larger than the weapon you are holding, and you cannot use it if you are flatfooted or otherwise denied your Dexterity bonus to AC.
