] The scene I had in mind was the hero holding closed a door with a bunch of militia on the other side trying to get through. It seems, from what you've said, that he'd be shot to pieces. [snip] Linden
If you wanted the militia to fire their muskets at the door your hero would certainly be well perforated. It would seem they would be very desperate to get him if they did so. I don't think they'd be doing that unless it didn't matter whether or not they took him alive. It would be more likely that they'd try to break the door down, maybe using the butts of their muskets. You'd loose that one detail in your scene, but could keep the rest of it.
I remain, etc.
