Trope-a-Day: Sword and Gun (also, Bow and Sword in Accord)

Sword and Gun: As they say, it’s a flexibility-maximizing classic for those who find it easy to handle a weapon with one hand (and, y’know, there are some biomods that do that).  It’s usually pistol and the longer of the Two Swords for formal dress, and pistol/carbine and the shorter in its utility/fighting knife role (and yes, there are plenty of people who will say that any legionary who goes into battle without his sword is improperly dressed) when dressed for combat, but either way, this is how a lot of people roll.  In the old days, this was sometimes done as Bow and Sword in Accord, with a hand-clockbow in place of the pistol.

And, of course, there’s no rule that says you have to use any kind of conventional blade on that sword…
