The Sandman's gas gun is a specially-designed hand-held weapon that pneumatically produces blasts of sleeping gas.
Invented by the first Sandman, Wesley Dodds, the gas gun was a useful non-lethal weapon, ideal for incapacitating multiple foes. Depending upon the nature of the chemical cartridges that Wesley used, the gas could also function as a truth serum (similar to Sodium Pentothol), lessening the aggressive inhibitions of targets and forcing them to reveal the truth upon interrogation. Following Dodds' death, the original gas gun was placed on display at the JSA Museum in New York City. The Sandman's successors, Sanderson Hawkins and Kieran Marshall also use variations of Wes' original gas gun.
