In a gunfight, the most important rule is ….. HAVE A GUN!!!
Here is some shooting advice from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate these rules… If not, you should get one and learn how to use it — and learn the rules:
A — Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.
B — It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by six
C — Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
D — Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length (Unless you are Tae Kwan Do trained)
E — Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off – or a 12 guage pump loading the first shell.
F — The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 magnum is 1400 feet per second.
G — The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – a gunfight is a deadly struggle — there is no such thing as a fair fight, so cheat if necessary.
H — Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets … You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, ‘cause it will be empty
I — If you’re in a gun fight: If you’re not shooting, you should be loading. If you’re not loading, you should be moving. If you’re not moving, you’re dead.
J — In a life and death situation, do something … it may be wrong, but do something! Standing still is fatal – moving targets are harder to hit.
K — If you carry a gun, people may call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
L — You can say ‘stop’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
M — Never leave an enemy behind. If you have to shoot, shoot to kill. If you end up in court, yours will be the only testimony.
N — You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
Always remember this quote from America’s premier Founding Father:
“Peace is that brief glorious moment in history, when everybody stands around reloading”: – Thomas Jefferson
