Fast is slow, slow is fast.

Decide to be aggressive enough quickly enough

Given the types of lines in this thread I would highly recommend reading Principles of Personal Defense by Jeff Cooper, its a very short read but on point with the topic of the thread.

Damn. I forgot an important one.

The Navy's first rule in a gunfight is......................................SEND THE MARINES!

This may be too wordy, but I think it is worthy:

15. If you ever have it out with an enemy, never leave him “for dead.” Be certain! People have been known to recover from horrible wounds and injuries. A final shot or blow, preferably to the base of the skull, will help you sleep easier, and may prevent an unpleasant surprise at some future date.


Aye! Seconded!

I've told much the same thing to my kids, but shortened it up to "Never leave a breathing enemy behind you, no matter how 'out' he looks."

When its not good enough for the Air Force, its perfect for the Army. When the equipment/radios/tech is too outdated for the Air Force, its still 10 years ahead of the Army
When the AF cant do something because its too difficult, they call a Ground Pounder, who beats on whatever it is till it works

Just some funnies I felt like throwing in

Thanks for those spirit_horse! Awesome collection. If all these ever get combined we'll have one of the most practical manuals ever created.

Much appreciated.

14. Never bring a knife to a gun fight.

I take issue with #14

Personally, I think it should be "Always take a knife to a gun fight - knives don't run out of ammo"

Of course, that is meant to mean - always bring a knife in addition to the guns you'll be bringing.

Just my 2 cents

One of the worst feeling in the world is needing a gun and not have one.

Or having a gun but not remembering where you put the bullets.

The worst is getting shot with your own weapon.

You got to watch your ole lady, to don't leave loaded weapon where she could get a hold of it especially when it that time of the month, I know a couple guys did that one got it in the head the other one a cop had to hide out from his wife, while on duty, when his wife came gunning for him with one of his loaded spares.
Yea, my wife drop the hammer on me also, but that goes back to not getting shot with own gun, I don't leave a loaded weapon where someone else can use it on me. She said she knew it wasn't loaded, I don't know how as the only thing she knew how to do is put the trigger.

my wife saw someone die at the barrel of a gun so she wouldn't point a gun at me

An empty firearm is just a club (or a rock). If you can't trust your wife not to shoot you, you have bigger problems than making sure your guns aren't loaded.

Dude, you miss the whole point, what I post, I was not stupid enough to allow my wife to get her hands on one of my loaded weapons. My point was, I have a weapon I know where my ammo is, I am not going to allow my, wife or anyone else access to one of my loaded weapons.

Then again you have a have a point, as I should of never said "I do " simple as that. But I don't trust my wife, she's a woman ( PMS ) Dude, I don't trust much of anyone, if I really don't trust you my hand is already in my pocket and will stay there until you are no longer present or I shoot your ass. If you are stupid enough to put your weapon in my hand the first thing I will do is unload it if it's loaded, before I will return it to you.

If a person Is close enough for me to touch, I can kill that person, with one motion. If a person is close enough for me to touch and I have have anything in my hand, I could kill that person in a instant. I would then take what ever weapon, weapon's that person has in their possession.

I have fought people over the possession of weapon, I have had weapon pointed at my head, I have had weapon discharged in my direction. I have had people say they were going to kill me, walking up to my front door, problem being they had nothing in their hand and I was already cocked ready to drop the hammer.

You would be lucky if you could handle my wife even if she did not have a weapon, as several dude's have found out the hard way. First she would mace you, then it would be down hill from there, yea, she mace me a couple of time's I just told her she was wasting her time which just made her madder. You would have to use some of of the stronger mace, to get a response out of me.

So anyhow your a bit mistaken.

Ha, that's the full expanded version of rule #2.


This one calls for a little on topic humor.

911 caller - I just had a hunting accident. I think I killed my hunting partner.

911 operator - OK, calm down; the first thing to do is be sure your partner is dead

911 caller - (brief pause followed by a gunshot) - Ok, what next?

Nice!


Sort of a quick "hands on example" for rule #2.

911 operator: OK now, hide the body.

Big caliber...

Ah yes...

Memories of moose hunting...



Not only do you need big caliber, you had damn well better be a good shot because you've only got one chance to get it right.

If you cause just a flesh wound, you'll barely have enough time to bend over, put your head between your legs, and kiss your sorry arse goodbye.

SAS trains two to the head.

Chrome plated slides can see around corners.

Reaction time is typically .4 seconds if your ready.

Could be as low as .1 seconds
