You can pick any weapon you want but he gets the same thing. What do you choose?
the thought of a duel to the death with shitty .380s at ten paces actually sounds brutal/painful as fuck.

I wish those Birdman adverts were real. Especially the nuke 50 and the homeboy sights.
Really though, why wouldn't picrel work
Not big enough to achieve critical mass. Nuclear material doesn't scale like conventional explosives. Pic related is about as small as you'll get until someone figures out antimatter containment.
All of PrepHole in one picture.
>You can pick any weapon you want but he gets the same thing
A Rock Island Armory 1911! Assuming he is of similar skill as me:
>Take our 10 paces
>Turn and BANG!
>Miss the first shot
>It has also failed to feed
>I anticipate this and immediately run towards him after we pull the trigger
>I club him to death before he can say "Oh good heavens!"
I am also assuming he is averse to hand to hand combat.
>I am also assuming he is averse to hand to hand combat
Maybe. He probably doesn't work for a living so he has the time to engage in leisurely pursuits. Fistucuffs might be one of them. Still, he probably won't be expecting you to beat him to death with a gun, so you'll have the element of surprise on your side.
ewww MiM pot metal void-filled garbage. if you're gonna larp with a cheap 1911 at least get a tisas because its forged steel instead of MiM

Nice knowing you
If he brings his cane sword then he has violated the rules of the duel. I may be diced but his reputation, and possibly his family name, is forever tarnished.
Stop disrespecting the working man's choice in firearms. Rock Island is affordable and gets the job done.
Get the Revolvers. Never had an issue.
the funniest part of all those foppy gentlemen with big wigs and makeup and fancy frilly clothing from the 17th through 19th centuries is most of them had likely seen active military service because of the constant warfare in Europe (likely in the cavalry due to their class) and had almost certainly actually killed people in melee combat in live battles with cannon and firearm fire all around them
they would be more comfortable and familiar with up close and personal fighting for the express purpose of mutual killing than any tacticool larper on this website and that's while looking like a gay clown
Historically pistol duels were limited to one shot each though. Any further violence would be considered dishonorable. If you'd rather fight unarmed, then you should stipulate that the duel is to be fought by pugilism.
I choose surprise. Enjoy 15 rounds of 230gr JHP at contact distance.
My terms: we're to be sat on a log within reach of each other. Our pants nailed to the log to prevent movement. We're to be set afloat in the bay and given knives.
Your terms are acceptable
I just don't show up
I choose a single shot express rifle. Winner gets blown out of his boots.
I gun him down immediately for assaulting me and making veritable threats to my life.
Id smash almost any pompous soft handed dandy in hand to hand.. If he can box I choke him or break his arm with techniques from the future. If not I break his face with fists and elbows
Modern boxing unironically. I've boxed for a few years locally and could probably wallop the shit out of him even if he's athletic and even if he's some skilled old timey pugilist it would be fun anyway I just like boxing.
He'd be at a disadvantage no matter what because either he's a Broughton/LPR or an early Marquess of Queensberry boxer and wouldn't be used to the bigger modern gloves and potentially different round time which can make a big difference.
He has a cane retard, he would make your kneecaps fly like golfballs before bludgeoning your skull as you lay on the ground screaming. I swear tough guys are too stupid to get that weapon always beats bare hands, no matter how many kung fu movies you saw
But the entire point of the thread is that he lets you set the terms of the fight. If I say we box we both have to box, that's the point of the thread.
Sport boxing would have been very popular in his time, it would be a totally legitimate way to settle the dispute.
I thought he meant striking him down immediatly, nvmd
>n-nooo, he would actually teleport behind you and use his cane-jutsu to totally beat you!
moron I would catch his gay ass cane and shove it up his victorian bootyhole. you can disagree, that's okay, you're wrong. end of
This except american/euro/Thai kickboxing
But anon, what if he discombobulates you?
Lol, but that's why I'd demand we use modern Boxing rules. No clapping Sherlock!
Broughton Boxing actually encouraged kicking, so there's at least a chance he could be familiar with something similar.
if you use modern boxing techniques in a bare knuckle fight like they used to do back then you'll break your hands
This. Modern weaponry's largely too good for dueling, the reason people dueled was because only one in five duels went to the death.
If you want odds like that, it either needs to be physical combat till someone submits, yields, is unconscious, or dies, some meme idea like
, or you need to go back to old fashioned weaponry so you retain your honor while having a chance of survival.
>till someone submits or yields
I have a pretty high pain tolerance, I think I could outlast him if we were fighting with picrel.
Damn I miss ECW
> +5 damage while wearing the tactical sarape
> +7 intimidation while wearing tactical sombrero
I would tell him that dueling is for the simple or the European and that civilized men don’t murder someone cause they can’t handle the bants.

BLACK AS BOG
I accept your challenge. We frot at dawn.
God I love frotting so much.
In a frot fight who wins, the guy who cums first or the guy who cums last?
I think who comes first. But I think you could establish this beforehand. I'm able to delay myself, and can even cum twice in a row within seconds.
NTA but just stop right before you cum, take a few seconds, then start again and compromise rhythm between what you were doing before for partner and what you need to do to not give them AIDS/pregnancy. Most partners interpret it as edging them and like it IME.
I just edge a lot, gave me the ability. If I'm jerking off though I usually just do it as fast as possible, sub 1-minute, more of an administrative task at that point.
It's contextual. Like in futa porn when one is fucking the other's cock.
Glock 18 wit da stendo.Turn and spray.
Godspeed to us both, sir.
>Woe unto you, whose honor is so fragile that even the weakest of jabs lays it low. I deny you your honor and hold your weakness in contempt. Begone from me, retch and sully me with your presence no longer.
Even if I lose, he'll never live down the humiliation of several people watching as he flails around trying to stab me with the end of a massive board
Any handgun because retards don't know how to hit shit them. Put me past 15 yards and I might as well be in China for a lolnotraining.
Whenever this questions comes up, I will always have to go with the Baroque Cycle answer; a ship mortar
minuteman III so we both end up pussing out and never fight again, but instead do passive aggressive things like messing with each others homes and neighbors in a plausibly deniable way for the next 80 years

what is that???
The Pimp-cane shotgun from Saints Row
Speaking of melee duels and Saint's Row...
Well I thought using that would be a dick move
If you just straight up refused would that be like the ultimate insult to him? Not 100% on what gentleman culture was like but if I remember correctly turning down a duel was just plain sacrilege.
If you refuse it's social suicide unless everyone knows you're a total badass. You can get out of it by apologizing to him for whatever you said, which won't lose you face if you really did say something offensive and he wasn't just trying to flex on you.
I pull out my deck and my duel disk and then and It's time to d-d-d-d-d-d-duel.
Does he have his own deck or does he get the same deck as you?
Wouldn't you like to know?
Yes, I would. I find it humorous wondering what sort of deck he'd put together, and if he can make use of yours if he so happens to receive a copy of it.
>You can pick any weapon you want but he gets the same thing.
Some weak-ass flintlock.
A duel is about defending your honor, not getting people killed.
Yknow I always hear people saying this but that guy on the CapAndBall youtube channel hits targets at pretty decent range with smoothbore pistols.
yeah but you probably won't die if you wear some decent armor
They didn't wear armor in pistol duels.
Simple truth is most people don't want to kill other people. Prussia did a study on their marksmanship and found that in drills, accuracy with smoothbore guns was good enough that bayonet fighting should never occur. The opposing army should be obliterated before it could ever happen. Soldiers were missing on purpose.
>They didn't wear armor in pistol duels.
sure they did wear some form of armor undeaneath their clothes
>Prussia did a study on their marksmanship and found that in drills, accuracy with smoothbore guns was good enough that bayonet fighting should never occur. The opposing army should be obliterated before it could ever happen. Soldiers were missing on purpose.
Someone's study was flawed. Who was missing on purpose in the days of sword and spear?
thats absurd and the american civil war is a direct refutation. the only thing soldiers abhor more than killing the enemy at a distance is close combat. Americans shot each other to literal pieces far more often than they would resort to bayonets even when close combat would have lead to overall fewer casualties.
>read On Killing
Im not at all in support of the methodology of on killing but really it boils down to a though experiment. When facing the enemy would you rather shoot at silhouettes from 50 to 300 yards and have some bad feels later or go all in for some life or death RIPPIN AND TEARIN in every single encounter.
I understand what you're saying, but if it were the actual case then people wouldn't have done bayonet charges and trench clearing.
no, they would, they would just require far more training and unit discipline. Much more drilling and training has to be invested in making a unit close the last 50 yards other than sheer desperation. I say the American civil war vindicates this as with mass conscription and little training of the rednecks and irish that were armed and shoved onto the field they chose to shoot the shit out of each other.
anything after that I'd argue is pure desperation. Yes I would rather get in a knife fight than sit and die under artillery and machinegun fire
>Soldiers were missing on purpose.
Yeah I'm sure that's the reason, definitely couldn't be the difference between calmly shooting during a drill or shooting in the middle of a battle at an opposing army that's shooting back at you.
Aren't you mixing that up with the Americans in Vietnam?
I'd imagine it's the same as regular handguns. People don't know how to use them and blame the gun instead of accepting that they just missed.
This. I pick the shittiest, weakest flintlock possible, we have our duel far enough apart that the odds of us hitting each other are basically fuckall. We shoot, we both miss, honour upheld, we go on with our business.
Cmon how can you give up the chance for some funny old timey boxing?
The lid from a can of spaghetti-o’s.
Anything really, because I show up to the duel several hours late and beat him to death with an oar.
>pick any weapon
I also insist, without compromise: that we each must step off 15 full paces on the count of the Field Marshall, weapons held pointing straight up. Single-handed firing stance only. Nobody may turn until the order to turn is given, which is understood to be "turn and fire at will." After the first shot, the Field Marshall will ask if honor is satisfied. If both parties are not in agreement that it is so, each turns to face away again, steps one full pace backward (toward the other, closing the distance by two complete paces) and awaits the order to turn again. Repeat until blood is drawn or all six rounds are expired.
> Plot Twist: I'm going to nail him between chin & heart on the first shot.
HMMMMMMM, be very careful.
Fuck, I was looking for this series but forgot the title. Thanks anon.
At 100 meters. You must dual wield while standing at all times. You may not use optics or sights, it has to be "from the hip," understood as you cannot attempt to shoulder either weapon (so, "from the armpit" down to approximately the beltline). Each gun is loaded 12+1, shooting does not cease until all weapons are empty or at least one participant is incapable of continuing to fire.
Drop one weapon intentionally or otherwise and you forfeit.
Zach is my husbando, I would never fight him
Carl gustafs at 200m, may the best man win.
>Surprise Oedipal wretch
Axe and shield until first blood.
Fractional reserve banking and identity politics as a backup.
You guys are relying too much on the gun and not enough on the shooter. I choose AR-10s at 1000 paces. I don't even want to shoot him, just land shots close enough often enough that the mortal terror of being shot overtakes him and he runs away. Now his honor is double besmirched because he decided shooting was a proper way to settle a dispute.
Unarmed. Judo his ass with that thick clothing while naked.
20lb Sledgehammers at dawn it is then.
I'm not such a bad guy.
insisting. saucenao aint working
That's Streets of Fire, and it's the most underrated movie of all time.
I'd like to beat this guy to death with a sledgehammer, so I guess the weapon will be sledgehammers.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
Literally just my fists.
I would snap that fuckers pencil neck right there in the spot
I am going to murder you "accidentally"
Dont want to ruin it for you but a dandy was a guy like in the picture a fop was someone that dressed up in wigs and wore make up and perfume.
Saw a film about that guy who made the dandy movement it was quite entertaining
>that guy who made the dandy movement
You mean Beau Brummel? Yeah he was based. The modern suit derives from his ideas, so we're basically all dandies now.

600 Megaton thermonuclear warheads. Setting them both off should get the job done. And I'd like the duel to take place in Israel if possible. If not then NYC, but I repeat myself.
>You can pick any weapon you want but he gets the same thing. What do you choose?
Fist. Why fight to the death over trivial bullshit when you can just box each other and get a beer afterwards
A fair fight
1v1 rust interventions only
In many parts of the world before dueling pistols became a thing it was first to draw blood. Best mates would swing swords, get a cool scar and then go and drink the day away with rarely a fatality. German aristocracy would often try and make the scars more prominent so they had cudos later in life. Once handguns became a thing even aiming for a wounding shot would often kill the guy days later. There are a few books on the matter but basically duels went from a rite of passage to a pretty shit time with surgeons on hand trying to work out how to remove the ball from your now ex-jaw only for you to bleed out or die from their intervention in a few days.
i call him a gay and walk away
2 cans of axe spray and a few bic lighters
angry cats. 10 paces. first to draw blood wins
