d20 Chainmail weapon vs. armor

Below I've excerpted a few of the weapons and armor on the Man to Man (i.e. weapon vs. armor) chart from Chainmail. I converted the 2d6 target numbers to percentages, then rounded them to the nearest 5% to make d20 targets. The results were nowhere near what I expected.

I hope the formatting works out. I did the chart in google docs then exported to HTML, because I have no idea how to do a simple printscreen on my wife's Mac. Anyway, if you want to check my math or finish the chart here's the original:

Why no entry for a simple club or quarterstaff?
