Quickdraw is a free radial weapon selection script.

The script is designed to work functionally the same as the default weapon select HUD. You can scroll, use slot keys, or hold a hotkey to access the menu. If you usually select your physgun with "1 1 1 Left-Click", you can use the same keys with Quickdraw.

It's available for free as a basic radial weapon selector on the Steam Workshop. The premium version, available on Scriptfodder, includes a settings menu, a time-warp effect, and no watermark.

I made a free version because this script is not for every server. When you have fewer than 10 or so weapons it can look a little ugly, but many gamemodes, including Sandbox and DarkRP, give players this many weapons or more, so it's best to test it on your server first. If you like it, keep it no problem. If you LOVE it, consider helping out a starving Computer Science major <3.

The script doesn't actually slow time down in a multiplayer game (that would be chaotic; everyone who changed weapons would  slow the whole server down). Instead, it simulates this effect with the use of motion blur, DSP changes, move/look speed reduction, and sound effects. The result is quite immersive.

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • quickdraw <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc
