"Bushido is all very well in its way, but it is no match for a 30-06."

I remind my niece of that quote everytime she wants to take up a new Martial Art.

I've got two of em , . . .

"Never take a knife to a gun fight."

And a little different take on another one, "Anything worth shooting once, should be shot again, . . . ammo is cheap, life only happens once."

May God bless,
Dwight

Occasionally known as the Soldier's Prayer. Don't know the original author, but if someone could educate me, I'd be grateful.

"Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be “If only I had my gun”; and Lord, if today is truly the day that You call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass."

My favorite was from a warning shot thread on a gun board, I don't remember which one or who said it.

"Warning shot? My warning shot will be to center mass, and it's my way of warning him to stop or I will shoot him again."

More Quotes

Here's one I first heard here on the TFL -

"Never try to catch a falling gun" - Should be on the top 10 safety tips list.


From Mark Twain,

At age 14 my father was so ignorant, he was embarassing to be around,
but by the time I was 21 I was surprised at how much he had learned.
