Wish there was a way to loot the Gun Runner venditron. He has some nice guns
Use stealthboys to loot the Silver Rush, then exchange that gear for what the Gun Runners have if you prefer conventional weapons to energy weapons. (And despite the slow fire rate, the Anti Materiel Rifle was too pretty to pass up. Ammo gets hella heavy on hardcore mode, though.)

Boone dropped Oh Baby! when it broke (non-hardcore mode), so perhaps that's what they always do? With something like that, which seems like a bug even if it's intentionally designed that way, I never feel particularly bothered using the console to give myself back the vanished item (I also had a set of Brotherhood power armor apparently disappear entirely when I tried giving it to Boone, who can't use it).

They seemed pretty sparse for most of the game, but the Alien Blaster in the northwest made it all worth it. (Especially fun to use when you've also got the perk that makes opponents explode in a burst of radiation when you kill them with energy weapons.)

Yeah, he's pretty great. First playthrough, he was the only companion I ever used, though I had Veronica for a bit to do her quest line (and even then only knew about hers from the wikia).
Second time playing through, I went one-by-one through all the companions because I wanted to see their epilogues at the end. Shame that the Raul quest doesn't seem to work right, though.
