1. Avoid them like the plague a) Be aware of what is going on around you by staying in condition yellow. b) Have a plan or two (...if not, a "Last Will & Testament will do.) Corollary: No plan survives contact with the enemy. 2. Bring at least one gun (don't bring a knife) a) Bring a gun, even if you are going to knife fight. 3. Bring friends (as friendly witnesses or fire support) a) Let close air support or artillery soften-up the target for you. 4. Make use of available cover a) Remember the difference between concealment and cover. b) Don't get shot (Use cover to your advantage). 5. Place your shots well a) Pay attention to where your shots fall b) "Speed's fine, but accuracy is final" c) Don't miss (You can't miss fast enough to win). 6. If you're the bad guy, draw & shoot first. If you're the good guy, draw second and shoot first. 7. Bring the biggest gun you can handle. 8. Never turn your back on an armed bad guy, even if he's down. 9. A "sucking chest wound" is nature's way of telling you to slow down. a) If you're bleeding to death, say something witty. b) If you're actually dying, say something deep. 10. Never assume your opponent is out of ammo. Bring lots of ammo. 11. In combat, you will be scared. You will have a tendency to shoot high. Be aware of this and aim low. 12. Don't quit just because you're hit; GET EVEN! Never quit, period. There is no prize for second place. 13. There's no such thing as "unfair advantage". 14. He who lives to run away will live to run another day (the best strategy is being somewhere else). 15. It is better to give than receive (Just like Christmas). 16. Unlike Jeopardy, it's more fun to watch than to play along. 17. Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous. 18. Anything you do can get you shot, including nothing. 19. If your opponents didn't have the courtesy to "Count Off!" before beginning, assume that there's one more somewhere. 20. When the cops pull up, think fast and move slow. 21. Say nothing afterwards but the Seven Magic Words: "I'd like to speak with my attorney." 22. Drop the one with the shotgun first. 23. Use cutesy green-and-purple colored weapons and ammo so the press won't show any video of your non-evil-looking equipment. Fuzzy rifle-wrap works best. (Someone sent me this about a year ago by email.......feel free to add any "rules" you think are missing.) [:E]

[u]All I want to say is this regarding gunfights[/u]: In this part of town, word is that there is a sheriff named, GoatBoy who is the fastest "lock" in the west. Legend has it he can draw a "lock" from his holster faster than you can say, "hell! Who locked my darn post?!" Ask Mole Eye about his post. RIP!! [):)] [b]-RoadDog[/b]

Can somebody say, "AP rounds?" Mix you mag with HJP's, FMJ's, Boatails, tracers AP's, and whatever else ya got. Never know, you may need them all. Don't blink. He's just as scared of you as you are of him, NOT!! The loudest sound in a gunfight is "click, click,....fuck!"

Found these in G&A a while ago... The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win. Make (your attacker) advance through a wall of bullets. I may get killed with my own gun, but he’s gonna have to beat me to death with it, ‘cause it’s going to be empty. If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That’s ridiculous. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid about? You can say “stop” or “alto” or use any other word you think will work, but I’ve found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much the universal language. Don’t shoot fast, shoot good. If you’re not shootin’, you should be loadin’. If you’re not loadin’, you should be movin’. If you’re not movin’, someone’s gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick. --Clint Smith, Thunder Ranch

Aim small. Miss small.

9.A gaping chest wound is natures way of telling you to slow down. a. If your bleeding to death, say something witty. b. If your actually dying say something deep. c. If your already dead dont worry too much about what you were going to say. --(24) If you need it, yell "TIME OUT" and reload, or make your shots count the first time.

The first and most important rule of a gunfight is to HAVE a gun. Preferably a big one.

1) Stay behind me. 2) Don't use my real name. 3) Try not to trip over the bodies. These rules brought to you by ... TEAM JERK P.S. Any NY, NJ, Pa., De. IPSC/USPSA shooters should know who TEAM JERK is. If not, well you don't know what you're missing!
