Gun-fighting Rules & Tips from the Experts
In this day and age, every law abiding citizen should be carrying a weapon for their own protection as well as their families. Below are a few simple rules to be aware of...
"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading."
We have published several blog articles of late written by some of our contributing writers, some of which have never once carried a pistol in public until the last few years. These other articles, with increasing frequency and fervor continue to be a literal call to arms for the specific purpose of reclaiming total responsibility for your own public safety and that of those around you. As the adage goes - Better to have it and never need it, than to need it and not have it.
Most of these previous articles of late also made a very important and usually overlooked point about Police in general; that they are NOT protectors, they are "responders", and almost never on the site of any mass killings, hold-ups, muggings, rapes or bank robberies, etc. We will add to that, that legally police are not responsible for saving anyone. They carry guns for THEIR protection, NOT yours! Of course many officers don't personally feel that way, we know this, but that does make the last statements untrue. So like the basic common sense rules below, common sense dictates that each of us are in fact totally responsible to ourselves and to society in general to NOT become the victims of wolves. And for those who are either too old or too young to bring equal or greater force against the wolves, the rest of us should always be ready to be their sheep dogs.
So, be like the king of cool, Steve McQueen, and exude great style and strength while secretly knowing that, although you may find yourself walking through a valley of death someday, that you are the baddest MF in the valley!
In a gunfight, the most important rule is ..... HAVE A GUN!!!
These are shooting tips from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate these rules... If not, you should get one, learn how to use it and learn the rules.
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 inside arm's length.
E : Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they should hear is the safety clicking off or the hammer cocking.
F : The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.
G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always Win - there is no such thing as a fair fight. Always Win - cheat if necessary. Always Win - 2nd place doesn't count.
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 because it will be empty.
I: If you're in a gun fight: (a) if you're not shooting, you should be loading. (b) If you're not loading, you should be moving. (c) If you're not moving, you're dead.
J : In a life and death situation, do something .... it may be wrong, but do something !
K : If you carry a gun, people will 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; and, you won't have to press 1 for Spanish/Mexican or 2 for Chinese or 3 for Arabic.
M : Never leave an enemy behind. If you have to shoot, shoot to kill. 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.
If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, forward to others you know who also believe.
And in the future, whether it be in a school, Mall, Restaurant or any other public place, this is the ONLY sight the bad guy should see when he clears leather to kill innocents!
