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...)

[Corion]: marto: Yeah - taking a week off from the kids might be a plan :-D
[choroba]: what island?
[Corion]: choroba: La Palma on the Canary Islands
[choroba]: Ah, we went to Lanzarote 2 years ago with the kids and it was OK
[Corion]: choroba: I was there last year, yes, that would be suited a bit better for kids - much more beach and more varied kids friendly landscape than La Palma :)
[Corion]: We went to visit the "recently" (1975?) active volcano on La Palma but the landscape was underwhelming, at least when compared to the (cold) lava fields on Lanzarote
