The game went well. We finally managed to wrap up the current adventure with assorted bloodstains and explosions. After maintaining an unbroken record as the cautious "let's-think-about-this" guy I managed to fire the first shot and kick off one of the firefights. I finished it up almost as sane as when I started and completely uninjured. So this character may last a while.
Final exchange of the game:
"Are you going skiing?"
"No, I have hamsters to dissect."
Nice crew, they were fun and didn't trash the place. We'll probably do this again, hopefully without totally exhausting Laura in the process.
