Think about it: the sound of a shell jacking into 
the chamber of a pump shotgun is the closest thing 
to a universal language ever invented by man.  
That crisp metallic CLACK-CLACK is a sound perfectly 
understood by every reprehensible sleazeball 
perpetrator on this planet.  There is no other
sound like it, they know exactly what it means, 
they will not ask a single question, they will 
not stay by to investigate.  A sword or a bat just 
doesn't have the calm presence, cannot make that 
unmistakeable two syllable suggestion to relocate
forthwith.  Guns are our friends.
