Do you think the JEDI would be able to hold their own against modern day weapons?

I always wondered why their laser weapons fired a beam that went about as fast as a paintball. Anywho, I think if the stormtroopers had some 12 guages instead of those really crappy laser weapons the Jedi would be SOL. They can block laser weapons that travel as fast as a paintball, but theirs no way they could pull a neo and stop the 00 buck.

They still couldn't hit shit becuase of the damn helmets limiting their vision. And for supposedly well trained troops they almost always hip shoot instead of unfolding the stock & shouldering their guns.

Hand grenades are another gray area. If they threw one directly at the Jedi, and the Jedi tried to block it and chopped the thing in half, it would definatly blow.

A grenade might be small enough for them to deflect ala NEO since it's slow moving and a single object unlike a volly of small shotgun pellets.

Negative! This thread must go on.

Do you think the Stay-Puft Marshmellow Man would have been able to hold his own against the JEDI?

OH SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

Star Wars is the greatest Sci-Fi movie of all time!

Everyone knows that lasers move slower than spit because after you make the Kessel run in twelve parsecs, your powerpacks need recharging!

Jedi could simpily deflect modern bullets, they can control matter, remember? I think the reason storm troopers use lazers is because the Jedi cannot use the force on them and must use the sabers. The REAL question is could Jedi stand up to a Browinian noise generator? I think not...

You ever notice that nobody uses Claymores in any of the Star Wars episodes?

Yeah, but could the stormtroopers hump air??

Obviously... how could I overlook that. Sci-fi begins and ends with Alien and Aliens for me. Everything else is a different category.

I think a shotgun would help the stormtrooper's bad aim, at the cost of range and firepower (what, 6, 7 shots compared to seemingly "unlimited" from a blaster?)

Gah... stupid thread.

Everyone knows that if 1 dude had an EMP and a .45 he coulda taken out the Death Star himself.

Gawd.

And if the Stormtroopers had shotguns, there would be more Sterling and L1A1 kits available!

If they had only had sharks.....with laser guns on their heads.
