  •  The SCA has a LOT of stories like that (0+ / 0-)

    (good guys with sword/spear/halberd vs bad guys with zipknife/gun), and some of them are even true!

    Face it, for sheer intimidation factor a gun, any gun, isn't in the same class with Excalibur. :-)

    If it's
    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!

    •  I did hear a story firsthand from an SCA member (0+ / 0-)

      in New York State, years ago.  He was mugged at knifepoint and stabbed---but got away without a scratch because he was on his way home from an event and happened to be wearing chainmail under his jacket.
