`x = 4, y = 29, rule = B2ce3ir/S122bo\$3bo\$2bo5\$bo\$obo\$o2bo\$2bo6\$o\$bobo\$2bo4\$2b2o2\$2bo\$3bo\$2bo2\$2b2o!`

P.S. It's likely apgsearchable, though there is a natural wickstretcher based on the c/3.

EDIT: Found by apgsearch by Apple Bottom, an unrelated 4-barrelled p114 for the c/3:
`x = 10, y = 9, rule = B2ce3ir/S127b2o\$9bo\$5bo\$5bo\$2b2o2bo\$4bo\$o\$o\$bo!`

EDIT2: Another p114, this time with 2 barrels (and a smaller bounding box):
`x = 6, y = 10, rule = B2ce3ir/S124bo\$5bo\$5bo\$bo\$2b2o\$o\$2o2\$2b2o\$2bo!`

2 p42 xq8_167 guns:
`x = 77, y = 10, rule = B2ce3ir/S123b2o55b2o2\$b2o57bo\$obo14b2o42bo\$b2o57bo\$20bo\$3b2o14bo40b2o\$20bo49bo2bo2bo\$70bobobobo\$17b2o!`
Iteration of sigma(n)+tau(n)-n [sigma(n)+tau(n)-n : OEIS A163163] (e.g. 16,20,28,34,24,44,46,30,50,49,11,3,3, ...) :
965808 is period 336 (max = 207085118608).

Re: Requests for guns in non-totalistic CA

Do you suppose this rule has a gun or a rake?
`x = 107, y = 8, rule = B36ak/S23-ai4aj82b2o2b2o\$o2bo2bo2bo3b6o4bobo16b2o14b2o9b2o2b2o10b3o4bobo7bobo\$2o2b2o2b2o3b6o4b3o17bo13b4o6bo2bo2bo2bo10bo3bo2b2o5b2ob2o\$23bo20bo12bo2bo6bo8bo9bo5b3o7bobobo\$43bo12b2o2b2o4bobo6bobo14b2o11b2o\$42b2o26b4o32bo\$68b3o2b3o\$71b2o!`

Re: Requests for guns in non-totalistic CA

...No-one actually requested guns in that rule. Maybe that post would fit better in another thread, like "Miscellaneous Discoveries in [OCA]"?

A gun in tDryLife (B37/S2-i34q) that shoots camelships? (Golly/Patterns/Non-Totalistic/p42-knightship.rle)
