I know it's illegal and has been so for a very long time but what would be in your hand today, given rules of old? I think the rules were one single "ball" and no running/ducking about and a second might see to that perhaps. Back in those days, with the single shots, men usually carried very large knives approaching a sword in effectiveness.. and a killing stick. I've shot, many years ago.. nevermind.. that is not within the/these rules. What would you choose to stand there and bet?
