Ok, you all got me, I haven't really read the books (although I've seen all the movies) I suppose LOTRO shouldn't have guns after all. I think your probably right, all of you, It would probably ruin the lore.
I'm just so bloody tired of arguing about it, It appears this community holds more truer to the game than I realized. I apologize for fighting you guys for 2 bloody days.
I, Miven Lionsheild, now announce this thread closed upon my full surrender!
