I like loading heatsink for that one extra shot, personally.

Totally legit, but if my engi has time for 3 shots, I'm not using enough Kerosene

It's true, I like heavy clip on the flare gun. Makes it a bit tricky to lead targets correctly sometimes, but flares are best used when you're within spitting distance anyway. At close range, the perfect accuracy of heavy clip lets you reliably snipe components. Even with Lesmok, it's harder to snipe components reliably than with Heavy Clip.

Even with heavy clip, there isn't much drop. At max range with heavy, the flare only drops to about the bottom dot on the crosshair.
