But MF javelin only get 1 dice per two bases.

Which means, Grandad, you are saying that 1 dice per 2 from the LF and 1 dice per 2 from the MF cannot shoot (at the worst factor of the 2 shooters) as it doesn't add up to 1 dice.

Mr Powell makes a fair point. 1/2 dice are added together to make a whole dice at the worst factor and class of the shooters. But I'm quite happy with the proposal that as the firearms are not supplying a full dice then there is insufficient effect to warrant the -1 on any resultant CT.

Let's just go with that. It avoids any deliberate exploitation of this effect. (AKA Cheese)

So if they add half a dice is there a minus?

If I've understood David (Grandad) correctly - no - there is no minus unless the firearms contribute at least a whole dice.
