Rules for a Gun Fight
- If you have a choice don't go.
- Bring a Gun.
- Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice, ammo is cheap-life is expensive.
- Only hits count. A slow hit is better than a fast miss.
- If your shooting stance is good, You're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
- Move away from your attacker, distance is your friend.
- In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics, they will only remember who lived.
- If you are not shooting, You should be communicating, reloading, and running.
- Accuracy is relative: most defensive shooting situations will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun. Use a gun that works every time "all skill is in vain when the angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket"
- Someday someone my kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
- Always cheat, always win, the only unfair fight is the one you lose.
- Have a plan.
- Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
- Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
- Flank your adversary when possible, Protect yours.
- Don't drop your guard.
- Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
- Watch their hands, hands kill. ( in God we trust, everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them)
- Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
- The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
- Be polite, be professional, but, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
- Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
- Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and DE-escalation.
