Gunfight Rules

Remember, The Second Amendment is 1/3 about hunting and blasting away at clay targets, and 2/3 about protecting your right to defend yourself and your family from crime, tyranny and oppression. You need this, because when seconds count, the police can be here in minutes, to draw a chalk outline around the victim, and try to catch the perp.

Guns are dangerous lifesaving tools, but you need to know how to use them. If you don't know how, then by all means, don't use them. Don't even own them. They are not toys -- and this is no joke.

Adapted from an email circulating around the interweb:

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:
  • In a gunfight, the most important rule is, have a gun!
  • Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians. Politicians are worse.
  • It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
  • Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
  • Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm’s length.
  • 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.
  • The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second. 
  • The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win - There is no such thing as a fair fight. Always win - cheat if necessary.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In a life and death situation, do something! It may be wrong, but do something!
  • If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
  • You can say 'stop' or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much a universal language.
  • You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.

And I have a couple more:
  • Know your weapon, and pay attention!
    • The loudest sound in the world is a click, when you needed a bang.
    • The second loudest sound in the world is a bang, when you expected a click.
Not everyone has what it takes to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-preservation. Just don't deny it to the rest of us.
