Rules for a Gunfight

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, get one and learn how to use it…..then learn the rules:  

RULES: (Take special note of M.)  

A — Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.  

B — Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.  

C — Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.  

D — Never let someone or something that threatens you get within 20 feet.  

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.

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:  Win.  A gunfight is a deadly struggle, so there is no such thing as a fair fight, cheat if necessary.  ”Stop or

H and I missing, sorry

J — In a life and death situation, do something.  It may be wrong, but do

K — If you carry a gun, people may call you paranoid.  Bullshit!  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. ALWAYS state you
shot to stop the threat because you feared for your life.

N — You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and
your family.

And 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

    Jeff Cooper served aboard the USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) …

    …as a gunnery officer during WWII. Used mostly for shore bombardment, she fired more rounds than any other American BB during the war. In his book ‘The Past is Another Country’, He recalls that “Blasting Japanese bunkers at point blank range with 5-inch 38’s….

    …beats plinking tin cans with a .22 all hollow.”
