Guns are okay. I've always had a hankering to pick up more obscure weapons skills though -- longbows/crossbows, daggers and sabres, etc. Of course, not all of them lend themselves to sporting or competitions (e.g. garrottes). I'm concerned about self-defense, too. A gun trumps hand to hand combat skills, but what if everyone has a gun (inc. me)? What's the likelihood that I can get out of a situation like that unharmed? According to filmographic theory, if my heart is pure and I've done good deeds, I'd win a firefight. Realistically, I doubt this.
I've been pondering this for a while, so I'm rambling a bit. Maybe I should just go with the wrist-mount crossbows and a couple of throwing stars tucked in my evening bag. At least it would look cool.
