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 or 2 for Chinese or 3 for French.

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.
