10 Rules of A Gun Fight

  1. Bring a gun! Preferably two or more, all loaded.

  2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.

  3. Only hits count.

  4. If your shooting stance is really good, you are not moving fast enough or you are not using cover correctly.

  5. Keep shooting until the threat is neutralized; then stay sharp until someone with a badge tells you to "freeze".

  6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun AND a friend.

  7. In ten years no one will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

  8. If you are not shooting you should be running or reloading, or both.

  9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.

  10. Someday someone may in fact kill you with your own gun, - but they had better have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
