Rules for a Gunfight
  • Bring a gun.
  • Preferably, bring at least two guns.
  • Bring all of your friends who have guns.
  • Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
  • Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
  • If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
  • Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
  • If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
  • In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
  • If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
  • Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.
  • Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket."
  • Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
  • Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
  • Have a plan.
  • Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
  • Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
  • Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
  • Don't drop your guard.
  • Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
  • Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them.)
  • Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
  • The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
  • Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
  • Be courteous to everyone. Friendly to no one.
  • Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
  • Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a "4".
*Opinion worth what you paid.
