[Virus] 9mm and Sci-Fi Handgun share ammo

Not really sure if this belongs here or in Virus Suggestions, but here goes.

In Virus, the 9mm (or “Handgun,” according to the weapon select HUD) and the Sci-Fi Handgun share reserve ammo if both are in your inventory. Is this intentional? I know the two are identical in function at this point in development, but it seems rather illogical that their ammo type covers both bullets and lasers.
