    Rules for a Gunfight

    Anonymous

    1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.



    2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammunition is cheap - life is expensive.



    3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.



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



    5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)



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



    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 communicating, reloading, and running.



    9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an Angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket."



    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.



    11. Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.



    12. Have a plan.



    13. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.



    14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.



    15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.



    16. Don't drop your guard.



    17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.



    18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them.)



    19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.



    20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.



    21. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.



    22. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.



    23. Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.



    24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller than "4".



    25. You can't miss fast enough to win.

    I really like that list - the key for me thinking about it and a watch for us new shooters is this: Stay on the right side of that coin! One could read that and assume "practice" of all those things isn't so important cause when the lead starts flying, you're not so good anyhow. The RIGHT side of the coin is PRACTICE!!!! That list is a great list on how to engage in a potential life or death, or to avoid one. Since you won't be perfect, no one will, practice till it becomes second nature, muscle memory, who you are kind of stuff. Then, when it's all over..... you'll have been closer / better than the other guy.

    Hopefully.
