This is just a fun argument, based on total opinion. Please, remember, this is all in good fun.

The bow and arrow combination is more resourceful, stealthier, and cheaper than the gun and bullet combination. People have used the bow and arrow for years, and are still using it today. It is good for hunting and battle, mainly because of the reasons stated above.

I agree, this is a very interesting debate, and In good fun and pure opinion. I am not an avid gun supporter; no one I know even owns one. I am just advocating the case of the good old gun and bullet.

Gun: bang bang bang bang bang bang. Click click. flip-click. Bang bang bang....

Arrow: woosh, woosh, woo--damn, the arrow wont get on. What the? how are you supposed to use one of thes- by this time you have shot an arrow through your instructor who is standing behind you.

It all boils down to simple, effective, cheap, and the weapon of today.

The gun.

If you have read the Odyssey, there is a scene where no one can string Odysseus' bow to win the heart of his faithful wife Penelope. No one can manage to do it, except Odysseus, who had had much practice. I personally have used a bow and arrow, and man is it fun but man is it hard to use and a physical strain. Imagine your local police department carrying around bows and arrows, with little children on the sidewalk calling them "Medieval Men," and the teenagers chuckling and calling them "Legolas Legs," or "Bow-legged bow stringer."

Bow and arrows are clearly outdated; moving out of the way of the more effective. It may not be as effective as a extremely well trained apple-off-the-head bow and Arrow shooter, but it sure does the job and is extremly simple to master. Besides, they have been around for ages, and everyone loves the good old bayonet, right?

Thank you for this fun opportunity. I await your rebuttal.

Stealthier? Isn't that where silencers come in?

And I should think that a hole with the diameter of less than a centimeter would be less noticeable on a person's body than a foot-long wooden shaft...

Of course that would be okay!! I would love to see this argument go on for a while, but I didn't think others would be interested in it. Now someone is!

So, basically, of course you can post with the same information!

Aw, man! one round? come on. This would have been so much fun. If I repost this with the same information, would that be ok?
