weather a gun and a sword is honerable is irreverlant. they are both wepons and require respect. they both require skill. a wepon in the hands of someone that doesnot know what they are doing can be dangerous. just as a sword is usless in the hands of someone that is not skilled so is a gun or rifle. with a rifle it requires control of breathing and masteory of the body to be able to use. the recoil and suttle diffrences in how you hold a wepon can cause anyone to miss their target. can shoot some one as easyly as stabing them.
