Do spells like Gangplank's gun, which say they deal physical damage, get their damage reduced by spell resistance or armor? I'm asking because I needa know whether to get magic penetration or armor penetration to increase my damage output, and vice versa to decrease the enemies'.

It varies per skill, but skills that do physical damage should be affected by armor and armor penetration. Parrley used to be considered magic, just last patch they changed it to be physical and affected by armor instead of magic resistance.

Parrrrrley is easy... armor pen and damage. But i'd like to know about let's say... pantheon spear, ashe's volley and gatling gun.

Volley and Pantheon's spear are definitely affected by armor/armor penetration. Haven't tested gatling gun, you'd think it would be the same.

Any ability which says it deals "Physical Damage" does just that, and as such is affected by armor and armor penetration. Likewise, any ability that deals Magical Damage is affected instead my MR and MPen.

Thats physical, magic and magic if i'm not mistaken.

FYI, just because it scales with AD doesnt mean its physical.

I have a follow up question.

Physical damage dealing abilities don't seem to proc the same effects that physical attacks proc.

Are there ANY physical attack effects that DO proc of physical damage rather than actual auto attacks?

I'm hoping for instance for Life steal (while suspecting from limited experience that it doesn't).

As far as I know, ONLY Gangplank's Parrrley can do any on hit effects(Lifesteal, etc). Because it specifically says so.

As far as i know, only Parrrley (Gankplank) and Gatling Gun (Corky) give on hit effects.

And as far as i know, the only thing Corky's Gatling effects is Black Cleaver. Ive not seen it stack Malady (tested), give life (tested, but not confirmed as the life gain is really low) or slow (atleast not with a Frozen Mallet, it slows with Rylai's though). It also doesnt seem to use the slow from a Lizard buff (tested), which Parrrley will do.

Gatling Gun does not apply on hit effects. It does reduce armor on its own, however, which I assume you were mistaking for Black Cleaver procs.
