    I wouldn't get into a car.
    I wouldn't give up my gun.
    If you force me to chose between your life and a life of one of my family members. You will lose.

    My gun never comes out of the holster, unless I have the need and intent to fire it.

    the only rule is to make it home alive. If I'm staring down the barrels of several drawn guns, they can have the gun if it allows me go make it home ok with everyone i left home with. like clint once said, "man's got to know his limitations"

    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    Defuse the situation if at all possible, even if that means running away. But if you are left with no choice, fight with the fires of hell in your gut.

    For me too many 'hard & fast' rules rattling around in my old noggin might keep me in a reverie of constantly trying to remember them and use up too much of my 'processor'. I tend to go with this:

    God grant me the SITUATIONAL AWARENESS to detect any deadly threat before it becomes imminent; the ability and means to EVADE it whenever I can; and the MINDSET to destroy it when I must.

    I think one rule we have in common that separates us from the anti-gun crowd is "Never Say Never".

    Looking at some of the replies I quickly agreed with two of them and lo and behold they are 4 star members Thumper and retsupt99. Situational awareness is at the top of the list for me. As the 4 star members said, you just avoid and pay attention to the circumstances that will put you into an inconvenient situation. 68 years old and lived most of it in NY/NJ, NEVER had a need for anything approaching a firearm. Always a what if, but that is second-guessing something that should never have occurred in the first place, and just an argument for argument's sake

    I have two boxers. They own the airspace OVER my house--if a bird flies by that they don't like, I know about it. Rule 1--when the boxers go ballistic, so do I. <g>

    Never second guess myself, when it comes time to shoot.... SHOOT!! Anyone worth shooting is worth shooting again, and again.

    my third and fourth rule.

    Have gun, will carry
    If something is worth shooting, it is worth shooting twice, or three, or maybe even emptying the mag
