in thread Who would win in a swordfight?

When discussing ranged weapons, it's all about the range. :-)

Even to this day, a good martial artist can knock out a gunman before he can draw his gun -- at the right range.

At the wrong range, about all you can do is sprint like crazy to get to the right range.... Robin Hood is either most or least likely to kill the others (aside from the fact he just generally makes friends with other "heroic" figures), depending on whether he's ambushing people from the trees at a distance, or on the ground fighting toe-to-toe with a sword (like the poll title suggests...)
