I wondered this as well. I mean, does it have to be 3 shots semi? I haven't seen anything in the rules that even mentions ramping, let alone a specific number of pre-shots. Personally, I'd rather use something closer to millenium, but it doesn't *have* a minimum number of pre-shots.
If you want to set off and go develop some grand new thing, you don't need millions of dollars of capitalization. You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on, and the dedication to go through with it. We slept on floors. We waded across rivers. -John Carmack
