"It is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to…[he] is entitled to stand his ground, and meet any (life-threatening) attack made upon him with a deadly weapon…." Gibson v. KY, 34SW936(Ky.1931)
.50 BMG – I’m actually surprised it took so many hits before the sword broke. I would say that is one well made sword.
.45 ACP – I wonder whether that was FMJ or JHP ammo. How much of a difference would it have made?
That proves you don't bring a sword to a gun fight

It was impressive to see that katana slice a bullet in half...
I wonder how many shots it would have taken, to do that without a platform for the firearm?

That's one confusing video - filmed with an American crew/personnel, Japanese voice-over, Japanese onscreen verbiage, and finally Korean and Japanese subtitles.
Bitter and clinging to my guns and my religion.
I did enjoy the double subtitles with 3 different languages.
Does it make anyone else sad and/or proud that whenever they film this kind of thing they always come here to the US, the only place where it is legal?
