Lindsey's got a gun: your thoughts?

Upon rewriting this chapter (in which, SPOILERS, the train Lindsey is on is derailed and he meets legendary Finch and his gang) I'm contemplating giving Linds a gun to defend himself. Originally all he has is a incision knife from his suitcase full of medical instruments--he's a med. student, afterall. But perhaps his sister shoved a gun into his hands before he ran away... Or perhaps he pilfers it from a dead body on the train after the derail. No, he doesn't know how to use it, but at the very least it could be amusing for Finch or a moment of "OH SHIT" as Finch swats it out of his hands or something, keeps it, and the gang later teaches Linds how to use it properly throughout the story. Something along those lines. Or is that too cliche?

Feel free to weigh in on this! I'd like to know opinions. Would it be more effective for Linds to be with only an incision knife? Or should he try to take matters into his own hands with something he's inexperienced with? Is a knife and a gun too much?

TL; DR: GUN OR NO GUN?

2 lived to tell about it:

I think you should at least keep the knife, since it's cool that Lindsey would think to use what he has on hand. I don't think a knife and gun would be too much if he pockets the knife and saves it for later (maybe he never gets a chance to use it or is too scared too once Finch easily dispatches of the gun or whatever). The gun could lead to some very comedic scenes with Finch.

I say go for the gun XD

Awesome. I think I agree with you! Lindsey packing heat with no idea how to use any of it makes me giggle with delight.
