If your read my post again I am not judging you but asking questions. If you want to wast time reloading fine; most of us have done the reload schitk in the original DOS and other games. As for unbreakable weapons, "The Ghoul that Guards the Lighthouse" usually drops one that does a fair amount of damage.
If you have the pyro skill you can also use flare, firefly and, at level 6, fireball to open doors and chests.
