Snopy didn't bat an eye as the man unleashed his Shikai. He wasn't surprised in the least. Of course, Snopy didn't care either way. A little quick to the draw aren't you? Snopy cracked his knuckles a bit as he prepared. A few well placed Kidō and sword blows should be all this required. Though he did have his Shikai to work with, and he needed to try it out at some point.
He glanced on over as the figures were coming into view in the distance. There were certainly a lot of them to pick from. However, Snopy chose the front most member. What was this choice for? Simply put, target practice. He then drew a second blade, which had been placed right next to the first. Let the energy flow, Tsuin megami reijingu. (raging twin goddesses) The sword wielded in his left hand became enveloped in a pink layer of energy, giving it and his left arm a pink glow. This wasn't just an effect, it actually improved his sword's striking power and slightly protects his left arm. The blade in his right began to change shape and morph. Soon enough it had turned into a pistol. It was black, just like all his other sword was. There were lines that ran across it and would occasionally glow purple before fading away again. It gave it almost a futuristic look.
He raised the pistol up, aiming at the man he had pointed out. Bang. After speaking he fired off a blast of energy straight at the man. This blast wasn't too large, only of a medium size, but it mattered little. The blast nailed the man in the dead center of his chest and ended up killing him. I always did hate bandits. Normally he wouldn't shift to Shikai this fast, but he wanted to test out his Shikai. Every battle he used it in brought him new knowledge and skill on using it. His Shikai was rather weak and simple at the moment, but he felt it had much more power locked away.
