Sure, there are quite a few duels, but if I had my way, Redmond Barry would have immediately challenged every character he meets to a duel. After all, what conflict cannot be resolved by a good old fashioned duel? A couple of vagrants attempt to rob you of your gold at gunpoint on your path to Dublin? Duel!
