    I think the fact that the gun was invented is enough evidence to show that it is a superior killing instrument. There was afterall a purpose to it's invention. I don't see many Katana wielding Samurai lining up on Iraq's border. There are however a considerable number of carbine wielding soldiers.

    Yeah the sword is a graceful weapon and those that know how to use one (can't quite see the need in modern society) are very dangerous. But quite simply, the ability to hurtle lumps of metal into someone's chest at a rate of 600 or so per minute is a far more effective way of killing someone.

    BTW, many people are duped by Hollywood into thinking that being hit by a bullet would send you flying back off of your feet. It wouldn't.

    And why did you edit the title of this thread to include the words 'Video Game'? Much more fun before
    Such is life.

    Sorry, that's from Sea Lab 2021: Funniest show ever.

    I love the Adult Swims On Cartoon Network. I'd wish they'd never end.Z

    My idea of the ideal railgun is the one featured in Red Faction where the scope can see through walls. (Gamma vision?) In that case I can take out like 3 targets with one slug if they're collinear... hmm ill shutup now
    Yeah! I love Red Faction...a nice thing about the railgun: In the beginning where the big security vehicle is going across the ground and your on a catwalk: turn on invincible, weapons, and flight mode, go down, shoot the men with whatever the hell you have, arm the railgun, and shoot directly at the front of the vehicle. It just disappears. No explosion or nothing.

    My point exactly.. Railguns are kewl..
    In fact, any electrodynamically powered device is c00.
    As for the railguns featured in games like Quake or the movie Eraser as opposed to real life railguns, the recoil will liberate your torso. And there isnt the decorative blue-streak of superheated air that follows the slug trail.

    > The Gun or the Sword?
    I'd rather a laser gun mounted on the sword. So you are far away, i shoot you, you die; you're close range, I slice you, you die.

    I watch too much TV shows about ancient China that I've lost the urge to watch anymore sword fightings (but still fun to watch those special effects ).

    Make sure your adversary stays still and rotates once every 30 seconds for 10 minutes / pound.
