anyone can pull a trigger and hit a target but it takes more skill and consentration to cut someones head off with a katana.

This has already been said and is wrong. There are far more people who CAN'T hit a target than you would think. Sharp shooting and sniper training can take years for someone to get good at.

Yes anyone can just pick up a gun and start shooting, but anyone can pick up a sword and start swinging too. It's shooting or swinging the blade properly that takes practice.

i agree laf, anyone who says it easy to shoot should go out rabbit shooting or hunting of some type and see for themselves how hard it actually is to hit your mark.

as an aussie ive done a fair bit of roo/pig/rabbit shooting in my time and i can tell you that it aint as easy as it sounds.

guns dont kill
swords dont kill
they are tools
PEOPLE kill

one smart man said once "From inside fortifications, the gun has no equal among weapons. It is the supreme weapon on the field before the ranks clash, but once swords are crossed the gun becomes useless." i want you just think about that [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

That was true with muskets. Not so true since the revolver and cartridge based ammo. Otherwise the modern militaries would have adopted it. Name me one modern military that still sends troops into the field with a sword on their hip for use when the fighting gets in close.

Think on that.

Just watched a compare/contrast kinda thing on the Military Channel with the M-16 and the AK-47.

One of the things specifically mentioned was performance in Vietnam.

The AK-47, constructed of heavier wood and metal parts could and often was used as a clubbing/striking weapon at close range with little damage done to the weapon.

The M-16, which was constucted in great parts of composites--was said to "break" when used in a similar fashion.

The Russians, the Vietnamese, and former US troops all more or less agreed about that.

The winner of a bayonet fight is the man who still has a bullet left in his chamber. Not a direct quote but close enough. I believe that was Rommel talking.
