* OFF RECORD NOTE: Imagine different situations. Trying to hunt down a guy in a swamp, fumble the gun into water, gunpowder wet, WHOOPS. But if you're facing another guy with a guy who's 3 ft away [=IRL=]...Better to have that gun. It all depends on where you are.

* While not quite swords, melee weapons as a whole have seen use throughout the Vietnam War and are still in deployment today in some countries; [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combat_knife#Post_WWII Knives]], Machetes, Axes, Spears, and even Clubs have seen their fair share of usage as weapons throughout contemporary history alongside modern firearms. Modern military forces are even required minor training for defense against melee weapons, and some in the usage of them.

** Guns. There's Han Solo's declaration that "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." In ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Darth Vader proves him wrong. On Hoth in the same film, Han uses Luke's lightsaber briefly (the only non-jedi to do so in the film series) to cut open Luke's mount.

* ''SwordArtOnline'' presents this quite literally in its third season, where Kirito enters the world of Gun Gale Online. Despite having poor accuracy and fighting many opponents with guns, Kirito is able to defeat them all by equipping a photon sword and using his reflexes to deflect bullets, something no other user has ever even attempted.

** That said, sword-armed cavalry still had one last victory against guns at [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_of_the_Savoia_Cavalleria_at_Izbushensky Izbushensky]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, when the Italian cavalry regiment, the Savoia Cavalleria, discovered that almost four times their numbers in infantry with artillery support had surrounded them during the previous night and so charged and routed the enemy. That said, everyone involved quickly understood the charge succeeded partly because [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough the Soviets weren't expecting the Italians to be that crazy]] and partly because the cavalry was armed not just with sabers but also with carbines (indeed, the squadrons who still had to charge supported the charging ones with their guns), pistols, grenades, and, much to the Soviets' surprise, ''light artillery'' (every Italian cavalry regiment was supported by horse artillery).
