    Jun 7, 2011, 4:15 AM - Correct Pronunciation of "Pulce" as in Pulce 40. #1

    So I have always pronounced the found object for Boba Fett's ESB sidearm, the Pulce 40 as "pulse"... like taking your pulse or a pulse rifle. As you may know, Technisub, the maker of the Pulce 40 is an Italian based company. So, I was talking to a friend from Italy tonight and happened to mentioned the Pulce 40 and he started laughing at me because I pronounced it PULSE 40. Apparently the correct pronunciation is more like "PULL-CHAY" which means "flea" or "tick" in Italian which I assume refers to the Pulce 40 being a small speargun. Anyway, just thought I would pass that along so no one else ends up sounding silly like I did.... and don't say you knew it already because I have heard a number of you calling it a PULSE 40, just like me...

    This came up a few years ago in the original Pulse thread , how ever some one pointed out in fench pulse ment, pistol

    Though technisub being an Italian company it would be more likley it is Flea,

    Technisub? I thought it was made by Aqualung, so the reason of having an A on a side?

    I've always pronounced it as pull-chay. I guess that italian finally pays off.
