25 = 2nd Tier (Cowboy Repeater, Laser Rifle, Grenade Rifle)
50 = 3rd Tier (Hunting Rifle, Plasma Defender, Incendiary Grenade)
75 = 4th Tier (Sniper Rifle, Gauss Rifle, Grenade Launcher)
100 = 5th Tier (Anti-Materiel Rifle, Gatling Laser, Fat Man)

And it's not a bundle of TNT, it's a single stick of dynamite, which isn't TNT anyway.

If it _was_ harder hitting then there would be some justification for keeping the 1911. But _I_ the player had no idea which one packed a bigger wallop. All this is to say that, unless it is some kind of weird exotic weapon that hardly anyone has ever seen it, the player should be given some kind of idea of what beats what.
