    When it comes to my weapons, pretty much the same as everyones, your not getting it from me but one way.

    I don't have any hard and fast rules. Most situations are so fluid that I'll have to rely on my instincts to know when to be pro active and not reactive.

    I guess maybe my rile is, I'm not going to let me or my family be a victim.

    Myself and/or my Maker will choose the date/time/place of my demise, NOT a BG. It's a MINDSET thing with me. Otherwise I have to go along with all those that have posted.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I don't have "hard, fast" rules as that doesn't allow any flexibility for the endless numbers of variations that can occur with any senerio. Plans require "set" conditions, and that rarely happens. I'll do whatever I need to do at the time required.

    I REFUSE to be a victim (whether I have my two friends 'S&W' with me or not)
    and will do anything in my power to keep myself or loved ones from being victims.

    "Be polite, be kind, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet." that is my fast rule.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Something I learned a long time ago...flexibility is the key to Air power...

    I've adopted it for how I handle just about any situation...hard and fast rules lock you into specific end results...not necessarily the one you want...

    If trouble doesn't involve my family or me, then I'm not getting involved. The hard and fast version is never trouble trouble 'til it troubles you.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    This is my rules also, plus use whatever it takes to win after the BG or BGs starts it.

    My CHL instructor stated that home invasion into his home was to commit suicide, with which I fully agree.

    And that's my rule. I don't start stuff, but if you wanna go with me I will not back down.
