Stacking Notes

When clicking the Add Gear button, the application adds the item to the first matching instance of Gear it can find.

Each can have its own type of Ammo loaded and their counts and stats are tracked individually. When an Ammo slot is selected, the Ammo count, Weapon AP, Weapon Damage, and Weapon RC are updated to reflect the currently-selected Ammo. Clicking the Fire and Reload buttons affect the currently-selected Ammo slot.
