Deckard used a laser tube in the book, but hey, whatever does it for ya.

If I could actually take that to the range and shoot it, I would definitely shell out 900 bucks, but for a reproduction prop, hell to the no, especially one that looks functional enough to get you shot by Deputy Johnny Buzzcut, working his first graveyard shift by himself.

Yeeeah...
... I kinda got one of those.

One of Richard Coyle's builds - a lovely thing to behold and never touch. Was nowhere near 900 bucks, though.

Good thing, too - I used the rest of the grand to buy a demilled Sterling refitted to a stormtrooper blaster.

Sounds like Walmart. I have actually been in a gas station that was a gas/liquor/gun store combo. This was back in the nineties in Flagstaff AZ. No idea if they are still allowed to do that.

Other than the double-trigger thing (which looks pretty damn silly anyway), is there some reason that a non-replica version of this kind of gun couldn't function well?  Is something off with the weight or balance?  If there is no reason, why the hell has nobody actually made these?  I'm far from a gun guy, but if a real version of these existed, it would be a no-brainer.

Can someone please explain to me what the hell Deckard was doing with the photo that he found and analyzes? Was it supposed to be 3D and he's supposed to be "diving" into it. It still bugs me to this day and it's the only thing I still can't wrap my head around.

He zooms into a circular convex mirror that is in the picture, and that lets him "see" around the corner.

filmgrab.files.wordpress.com

Of course, it couldn't really be done like that in real life, unless there was another similar mirror that would be in the image reflected by the mirror, but hey, it's a science fiction flick.  Some of the stuff we do today wouldn't have been believable 30 years ago either.

Pretty sure it's not a traditional photograph as much as it is a three dimensional light field. Trivial to refocus a light field, especially in a future with robots that are nearly indistinguishable from humans.
