In that scene there was supposed to be a huge, drawn-out fight scene but Harrison Ford was sick that day. They had hired like the world's best swordsman for the scene. George Lucas then decided that to make the scene as is (Indy quickly killing the swordsman). The swordsman was so offended he refused to do the some random guy (like a light guy with some sword experience) played the part in the movie. Apparently a lot of big scenes in big movies were Harrison Ford's "fault". Like when Leia tells Han she loves him, and he says "I know". That wasn't in the script. Anyway, fun fact!

Leathermarshemellow, if they're in a phonebooth...I think the guy on the outside with a Mossber 500 and a personal vendetta against them both would win. Just sayin'.

Snubnose revolvers are called Belly Guns for a reason. Don't leave home without it.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

An old friend, at the time a commissioned warrant officer settled the knife vs sword "argument " several wars ago on a Pacific island. He came home, his pistol came home, he brought the sword home too.

I vote for the sword...for any bad guy I may meet, that is the wepon they should carry, I would prefer they carry a jousting spear but that would be asking too much, they are hard to find
