  • Rules For A Gunfight

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2127083/posts

    (I like No. 24. <<Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller than "4".>>) (sic)

    My father (a DI) and I promulgated four basic rules of the gun:

    •never point a gun at anyone, it might be loaded

    •if you do point a gun at someone, make sure it’s loaded

    •when you point the loaded gun at somone, be prepared to pull the trigger

    •don’t hesitate to pull the trigger.

    My father asked me, "what do you have when there is a room full of people who all have guns?"........."you have a room full of polite people, son".

      #11 is my favorite and probably the best:

      11. Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

        We actually did have a gunfight here the day after Thanksgiving. Two guys drew on each other and started firing...... in Toys-R-Us :shock:

        Both died...

          As a concealed carry permit holder, I can tell you that those rules aren't terribly far off what the instructors in my concealed carry class taught. That was after the first half, which was devoted to knowing when to shoot and when not to shoot.

          I depart from the "the caliber of which doesn't begin with less than a '4' " when carrying concealed, however. My usual professional dress doesn't accomodate concealing something that big, so I go with a little .380 there. Better than nothing.

          Break in to my house at night, however, and you'll be greeted with either a Ruger GP-100 .357 or a .40 Glock.

              You wouldn't if the guy who broke into your house had what Zat0pek has.

                There's not a residential door out there that will stop either a .40 or .357 round. I wouldn't want my life or my families lives to be dependent on my ability to not be discovered behind a door.

                  When I'm in Stealth Mode, NO one sees me! :twisted:

                  To be serious for a nanosec, if you have a gun and the burglar has a gun, there's a real good chance someone is going to get hurt really badly (i.e., fatally). Unless you are willing to shoot first (for a major organ) and warn later, there's just as good a chance it will be you (then witnesses (i.e., your wife). I'm willing to let someone rip me off if it means that neither he, nor I, nor my wife will die. I can recover the loot or file a claim with insurance. I cannot bring back me, the guy (the penalty for B&E/theft is not capital) or my wife.

                              I'd rather be a live softie, than a dead hot-shot (or killer of a thief). I did my 20 years in the military; that's enough 'eye for an eye' for me.
