Hi, this is my first run-through, and I shot 15/15 of the blue medallions. I got the Punisher and sold the Handgun. Should I have done this? Or should I sell the Punisher and buy the Handgun back?

That's fine. Keep the Punisher for now, then buy the Red 9 when it becomes available, or you can hold off a bit longer and wait for the Blacktail. They're both good (and the Punisher is crap).
don't go my way

If the Punisher is crap, shouldn't I sell it back?

You won't have to wait long for the Red 9, so you may as well stick it out with the Punisher, rather than waste money buying the regular handgun back. Though if you have a save from just before selling the HG, reload that, keep the HG, claim your free Punisher and sell it right back to the merchant.

I did the same thing during my first playthrough. I shot all 15 medallions then got the Punisher and sold the Handgun.

I highly recommend getting the Red9 when it becomes available, and you won't need it's "add-on". ;)

I usually just keep the handgun until the free punisher, then sell the handgun, then use the punisher for a little while until the red9 becomes available. I never upgrade the handgun, usually I throw all my money into the rifle since i'm playing pro and I know i'll have it until the end of the game.

The 15 medallion punisher has 1.1 fire power which is more than the handgun unupgraded. (+ the shoot thru effect)

Beyond that the punisher has a use in disarming shielded dudes. (Legshot allows for kick prompt)

but a rifle or shotgun are more useful for that.
Why would it get a second season when it's about to end here? >_> -V exe1 on tower of druaga season 1.

Thanks for your help guys! I now have the Red9! Do I need any upgrades? And should I use it till end-game?
