I received this through e-mail from a friend. Don't know if it has been posted but... it's something to think about.


TEN RULES OF A GUNFIGHT

1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two.

2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.

3. Only hits count.

4. If your shooting stance is good you're probably not moving fast enough or
using cover correctly.

5. Keep shooting until the threat no longer exists; then stay sharp until
somebody with a badge tells you to freeze.

6. If you can choose what to bring to a gun fight, bring a long gun and a
friend.

7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or
tactics. They will only remember who lived.

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

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 kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
beat you to death with it because it is empty.

My first rule to being in a gunfight is:

Be somewhere else!

My first rule to avoid gun fights is don't tell the wife what you've bought.

We used to have fights all the time 'til we adopted the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

If I were in a gun fight on the streets I would stay behind a car and lay down as to see under and shoot the agresser in the ankles and when he fell shoot him in the head .

I would add "Make sure the other guy does.".
Just a thought.

Agreed. The engine block and wheels are cover. Everything else is merely concealment, even to 9mm JHP.

Always remember: "If you're in a fair fight, your tactics suck!"

As picked up from watching thousands of hours of action movies:

1. Always appear back-lit.
2. If you have to relaod, you are one of the bad guys.
3. Aiming is optional.
4. If possible, shoot your target while he is standing in front of a large window or mirror so that your pistol shot picks him up and throws him through the glass.
5. Don't forget to thumb-cock your Glock.
6. Don't forget to rack the slide on your automatic to show how serious you are, even though you jst racked it a moment ago.
7. Strip to the waist and oil yourself before a gunfight, whenever possible.
8. Diving sideways and shooting two pistols simultaneously is the newest of new techniques. Practice it. Use it.
9. All shotguns in your arsenal should have pistol grips.
10. Gangsta-style is the proven most effective method of deploying a sidearm in combat.

Golgo-13,
You forgot to add Pump the slide on your shotgun often whether you have shot or not!

The "Real Gangsta Shooters" use these:

The 10 rules mentioned above came from Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch.
Link Posted: 1/14/2002 7:42:15 AM EST
Rule # 11 Wear kevlar, Spidersilk, or woven nanotubes, depending on year of gun fight and budget

Rule # 12 Don't go places you expect to get into gunfights

I always figured I'd grab some cover, take a couple shots, and then say "Click Click".
When the bad guy thinks you are empty and lets his guard down, shoot him in the head.
Link Posted: 1/14/2002 7:49:02 AM EST
11. If you run out of ammo, throw your pistol at your opponent. This one makes even Superman duck.

How well is that going to work if the cars are parked in a row along a curb?

I liked the idea of being face down, prone on the sidewalk.....

Gives you excellent opportunity to quickly move in any direction to advance / retreat as the situation demands. (Not to mention, excellent opportunity to take a round in the back......)

GODDAMNIT! I almost burst out laughing in the office when I read this! It's hard to explain why when you ain't supposed to be surfin' the net OTJ.
