Sure. But the whole "shield versus gun" thing came out of Stupidmonkey finding the idea of a gun being used for defense amusing (as opposed to armor and/or shields).


Actually, I would say that the gun is great as an intimidation tool, not a defensive tool. And intimidation, to me, seems to be an offensive style, not a defensive style.


I think you're getting caught up on some kind of treatment of "type" of weapon or whatever (or combat styles, like in a game). If intimidating your opponent prevents him from attacking you, then it was an effective defense.

In my head, when people talk about guns for defense, for some reason I see people blocking punches with bullets, which I understand is very effective, but it still makes me giggle.


I can see that!
