    What... I guess you have never shot a gun in your life and have never been properly trained in the use of a sword. I on the other hand have been training fron the age of 5, in both sword and gun uses and arts. To say that there is no skill to the use of a gun is wrong, there is so much you need to know. How to set your sights, compensate for the wind, to time the lead of the target, range. Not to mention the ability to approch the target to maximize the effectiveness of each shot.
    Thou I love my swords (family heirlooms 13th & 16th century longsord and rapier)
    to start issuing them as a weapon would be stupid, it takes years to master the use of one, that is why the knights/samurai were tought from childhood.
    And as for the money part, if you think good swords are afordable then think again. When swords were still in wide use the best quality one had to be made by comission to a master swordsmith, my heirlooms were 500 gold sovrins, and 1600 ductits repectively, in preasent currency whould equal over 500,000 dollars each and that is not being generous. Where the gun can be stamped out for pennies on the dollar, and in a shorter amount of time.
    MAY YOU DAY BE BRIGHT, AND YOUR ASSOCATION WITH MORONS BE MINIMAL. EXTRA MEDICATION FOR ALL!!!

    Re: Swords

    I like... iaido. ^^ It's a pretty neat sword. The scabbard is made out of wood and it's pretty long. ^^ I wish to own one of those as my murder weapon in the future. ^^ j/k. As my collection.
    ^^ baa~ I adore long swords and daggers ^^

    baa~

    Re: Swords

    I was just kidding, yo! XD

    My choice of murder weapon will never be a sword for I don't really know how to swing such a long blade! XD baa!

    My choice of murder weapon would be:
    Chainsaw
    Baseball bat coiled with barb wyres
    Spoons

    ^^


    back to topic before I get accuse for spamming~
    Swords.
    I would like to know more about iaido. Has this sword been mention here by any chances? I... don't think I wanna dig out to find out >_<,
    ... Does a nito-kodachi really exist by the way? (='.'=)

    baa~ (n.n)

    Re: Swords

    katana's are the most durable and sharp swords of all, samurai sometimeswent to europe if they were dishonored or exiled. and the katans cleaved straight through a knights armor like a hot nife through butter.
