In the light novel, there certainly is. Can't say about the other materials, though.

Only light scuffles between Natsuki and Takeda in the Drama CDs.

Slight Yami-Mayo vs Mai, Natsuki & Shion for about five seconds...-_-

I don't know about the most recent Destiny Drama CD though - have yet to get it.

It's like X-Men, Fuuka Gakuen is a private academy that teaches students how to use their powers.

They are all esper, and they gather there to study how to use their powers. The only one we have seen so far with a real weapon is Shizuru, while the other characters showed (Mayo, Tomoe, Nagi, I don't remember who else), just use ESP powers.

That's the main reason I hope an anime version of Destiny never sees the light of day! A bunch of espers is never fun, it's more boring than anything. Shizuru and Mayo seem to be the only ones capable of hand-to-hand combat, but the cover of the new drama CD does show a few characters with weapons.

Natsuki still has her guns, if that counts for anything, tho she materializes her's while Shizuru's is a real sword.

With a change in design. I must say though, I do like the new design.
As for weapons:
Mayo- Most likely the handcuffs.
Shion- A katar
Natsuki- Two revolvers
Shizuru- A katana
Takeda- A bokken or a shinai. Don't quite remember.

Anyone else with Elements or weapons that I forgot?

Takeda had a shinai iirc...too lazy to check. Shizuru's sword isn't actually a "katana" in the true sense of the word (?), it was called a 日本刀 (nihontou, lit. "Japanese sword") in chapter 1. Most folks seem to use "katana" as an umbrella term for all Japanese swords, even Japanese themselves it seems, and although this isn't really incorrect, it is a very general term and does not describe the sword clearly enough. (okay, I'm nitpicking here)

It would be helpful if somebody with more relevant nihontou/katana knowledge could talk more about this. From my layman's point of view, the sword, including the hilt, is roughly 1m long (compared to Shizuru's official height of 162cm) when shown on the cover of Chapter 3...

I put "katana" because I wasn't sure many people would know what an"iaito" was. I remember Chie saying something Shizuru having superior Iaido skills or something like that.

Mai still materializes her rings (not quite a weapon though - more 'wind' element now than 'fire') and if you've seen/read the lil manga that goes along with Destiny, she's a pretty decent fighter in that she uses hand-to-hand and her power ups her agility, speed, and range. She even blocked a Dark Mayo's Tele-Kenetic Wave on her own (Drama CD). Since she's not suppose to be 'around' ... it's

Takeda still uses his trusty shinai. He just focuses his power through it to make it strong enough to deflect Natsuki's ESP Bullets. Of course, it did squat against Mayo... Mayo has those insanely strong Tele-Kenetic powers and only a few people can withstand her power long enough to do anything about it.

That's retarded! There's no point in the rings being there if they're not a fire element. Although I feel that way, I still back Mayo 100%!

Wind can be more useful than Fire IMO And they use ESP for their power, the Elements are just the manifestation/materialization of the power and how the user utilizes it, right? ^^

Though that's true. The rings have always been fire, so it's one of those small changes that makes a difference.

The serialization is still going on, but will probably be ending soon. I have made a post regarding this on the Destiny LJ comm.
