The heavy weapon community didn't want to stop using Freon can helms
or hockey gloves.
They didn't want to use kidney belts, groin protection, hard knees or
elbows, kidney belts, gorgets, hand protection more than light leather
gloves, or C-7 vertebrate protection.
There was resistance to rapier combat, Combat archery, Thrown weapons
and Seige weapon combat.
It's just a question of how much of a struggle people are will to give
to cause a change.
I've been on the battle lines for most of these matters, (Sometimes on
one side, sometimes on the other <G>) and a dozen others.
