In response to Duels: swords v. pistols, written by Marsha on July 31, 1998 at 13:30:15
] But somehow, I always thought they fought with swords, a form of duelling still quite popular. That would explain why neither of them was dead, since most duels ended when one of the opponents was wounded.
Well, maybe, but Brandon does specifically say that "We returned unwounded" which keeps me leaning towards pistols. I do like the theory of one or both of them missing on purpose. They would have had to at least draw blood to get out of a swordfight. I suppose they could have stopped at that point, with only minor injuries.
