But that is not the Jeff Cooper/Gunsite Color Code. The Jeff Cooper/Gunsite Color Code is a particular system intended for a particular use in a particular manner. The elements of that system have been described by a couple of students of Jeff Cooper's. We have also Col. Cooper's own statement (Jeff Cooper's Commentaries
, Vol. 13, pg.4, emphasis added)
...The Color Code refers not to a condition of peril,...
This thread was started to help clarify the Jeff Cooper/Gunsite Color Code.
There are other systems for using colors, numbers, letters, words or other forms of designator for threat levels, conditions of alertness, threat assessment (A
eopardy, and P
reclusion) decision processes (O
ecide and A
ct), or response process (A
scape). These systems are different from the Jeff Cooper/Gunsite Color Code and serve different purposes. They are useful for those purpose.
