No one could sum up their entire defense/gun handling philosophy in a few sentences. Cooper was a logical, common sense type person. He gave us some great axioms. He wrote them to be as simple and succinct as possible, but surely he didn't mean for us to abandon reason, logic, practicality and common sense. Its more than obvious to me, that ultimately the fine details of his color code system, must be dictated by individual needs and circumstances.
