“What did you DO to him?” I realize Yalaria comes off a little dim, but pistols of any kind are a very rare commodity on Arkerra, so it wouldn’t be too OOC for even a creature of above-average intelligence to be taken aback by one in action.

One reason they’re not seen a lot is that (like their parallels on historical Earth) they are very inefficient by modern standards. As you may recall, this pistol is a one-shooter, and reloading would take a lot more time than Isidro has. So he bluffs.

Last panel: Isidro may be starting to realize he’s a little too good of a guy for his line of work.
