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 (Ability, Opportunity, Jeopardy, and Preclusion) decision processes (Observe, Orient, Decide and Act), or response process (Avoid, Disengage, Evade, Escape). These systems are different from the Jeff Cooper/Gunsite Color Code and serve different purposes. They are useful for those purpose.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
