We should all draw from our past experiences whether they be from military service, law enforcement, hunting or whatever, and list 3 to 5 general statements that we can all benefit from. You could list a tip on how to make a job easier, state a commonly held truth just for the record, or pass on something you've learned from an experience. Only rule is no disagreements, attacks or rebuttals on other peoples statements. I'll list 5.

1)You can sand down a piece of 2x4 to fit in your magazine well and use it for a vice block for gunsmithing.

2)You can never have enough Hoppes #9 powder solvent on hand.

3)Don't waste money on those rubber magazine covers, they'll fall off and get lost. Use a small black .5 cent rubber balloon instead.

4)If it can go wrong in the field it will.

5)For deerstand hunting in the north, take an old 5 gal metal bucket and slice 6 holes in it's side. Place a kerosene lantern with a low lit flame underneath it and use it for a seat. The heat will ventilate out the holes and keep you warm in the coldest weather, and the scent won't spook the deer (have had bucks walk right under my stand!).

Any lane you change to in traffic in order to pass some moron automatically slows down, allowing the moron to further torment you.

All people are stupid.  Just give them time to prove themselves.

Scientists and researchers spend vast sums of money annually in order to re-invent existing products in attempts to make them idiot-proof.  In the meantime, the universe is busy building better idiots.

Ok, here is some personal tips I've picked up along the way.

1. Never play cards or pool with a guy who has a Nick name of a city or the Nick name "fats"

2. Any time someone says "trust me" it usually translates into "your fuked"

3. Never tell anyone anything you would not want to see on the front page of the newspaper.

4. Your lawyer still gets paid if you go to jail.

5. After year 5 a President has nothing to lose by pissing you off.

6. The most efficient governments are usually dictatorships.

7. I'd rather be in a stadium full of gunowners than a room full of Trekies.

8. It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.

9. It takes the Average time of 4mins to police to arrive to a call, It takes me less that 4secs to draw a handgun.

10. When you can't put a thought in their head, give em' a bullet instead.

Drink beer the night before a deer hunt. It will dehydrate you and there will be no urge to piss while in the stand. Take water to the stand with you. You will need it because you had beer last night and you are dehydrated. [:)]

On Reloading 9x19mm (via Dean Grennell): The number of berdan-primed cases you will encounter will always exceed your supply of decapping pins by at least one.

On Reloading in general: Published loading data is to be used as a guideline; common sense is to be used above all. If you're getting flat primers 0.5 grain below published maximum -STOP- you've already exceeded your firearm's maximum load. If you are going above published numbers, you're on your own, not that is always a bad thing if you know what you're doing. Ask yourself: Do you?

Firearm maintenance: Do not put off cleaning or repairing any firearm you own. They are, by definition, lifesaving tools and should be treated like any other surgical instrument and maintained accordingly.

On Woodworking and Metalworking: Measure twice, cut once. Err to large side, you can always adjust and cut it again.

Never pass up an opportunity to take a piss.

The only thins you gotta do in life are: pay taxes, die, and take a shit once in a while.

No-one who is fit for governance will ever get the job - they don't want it.  Be suspect of those who actually do...

We don't use TP twice - why do we keep re-electing congresscritters?  Once they have proven themselves worthless, it is time to dispose of them.

Measure with a micrometer.  Mark with chalk.  Cut with an ax.

There's never time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over.

After years of careful testing and diligent observation, I have determined that the Universe is composed of precisely two substances, ixed in varying proportions.  Those two substances are Magic and Bullshit.

Never argue with an idiot.  They will simply drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Don't try to teach a pig to sing.  It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

Likewise, don't wrestle with pigs.  You both get dirty and the pig enjoys it!

A zygote is a gamete's way of making more gametes.  This may be the basic purpose of the Universe.

When the wife asks how many cars/guns/whatever a man needs, the proper answer is "one more..." no matter how many you already have.  This is why I have three Jeeps in the driveway and so damn many parts in the garage...

A successful marriage depends upon two things.  They are... unknown to me....

Always listen to experts.  They will tell you what can't be done and why.  Then go do it anyway.

1)If you cant find time to do it right the first time, how will you find time to do it again?

2) Once the moron powers make a law, that freedom is gone forever. They make new laws everyday, but NEVER repeal any.

3) [b]NEVER[/b] eat anything that gets up and walks away!

4) IF she is attracted to me, she is a psycho mother f*****!!!!

And 5, sadly enough was my personal brainchild in 1995 after an office debate with a moron regarding flying safety. It was put on my first webpage shortly thereafter, and I got a dozen calls last fall from people who remembered me saying it over and over and over....

Never trust a person that flatters you constantly. That person is a liar and a leach. A liar because you ain't that good and a leach because he/she wants something from you.

When speaking with a leo, in his/her official capacity, always be polite and say as little as possible.

Only two things in the world smell like fish and one of them is fish.

Next, click the "Tools" menu. There should be a picture of you there since you are a tool.

Remember, the plural of 'moron' is 'focus group'.

It can't be stressed enough how important it is to have the shiny side pointing out.

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always lands with the buttered side facing down.  I propose to strap buttered toast to the back of a cat. The two will hover, spinning inches above the ground.  With a giant buttered cat array, a high-speed monorail could easily link New York with Chicago.
