You do realize that IRL, combatants in duels were expected to deliberately miss their (single) shots, with the whole point being to demonstrate that you were willing to (in principle) put your money where your mouth was?What you could do is use intentionally inaccurate pistols-like old flintlocks from say thirty paces. It becomes much a less a game of skill and more a game of nerve under such circumstances. You shoot-and miss. The other guy gets his shot as well, if he misses you each get one more bullet.
Until one person either backs down or someone is on the ground.
To attempt to make their own point for them, the point was to force people to back up their stated convictions with their life or else be drummed out of the metaphorical public square.At seventy paces a thick coat would stop the bullet Assuming you hit anything smaller than a house
Use paintball guns, same test of skill, same win or lose but nobody dies. Unless the whole point of this is that you want to kill people who say bad things about you.
