    Good Quotes

    recieved this in an e-mail today and thought I would pass it on

    Timely thoughts in light of the Supreme Court reviewing a handgun ban
    in D.C.

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    The purpose of fighting is to win... there is no possible victory in
    defense. The sword is more important than the shield... and skill is
    more important than either one. The final weapon is the brain... all
    else is supplemental.

    As John Steinbeck once said.

    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight... he'll
    just kill you.

    ~ Other observations ~

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

    I carry a gun 'cause a cop is too heavy.

    When seconds count... the cops are just minutes away.

    A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The
    reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and
    asked him, 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they
    don't make a 46.'

    An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on
    his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?' 'No, Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would
    have brought my rifle.'

    Beware the man who only has one gun... he probably knows how to use it.

    A visiting lady once asked me if I had a gun in the house. I said I
    did. She said, 'Well, I certainly hope it isn't loaded!' To which I
    said, 'Of course it's loaded... can't work without bullets!' She then
    asked, 'Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?' My
    reply was, 'No... not at all. I'm not afraid of the house catching fire
    either, but I have fire extinguishers around. and they're all loaded
    too. To which I'll add... having a gun in the house that isn't loaded,
    is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.'

    And, finally... One-word definition of an unloaded gun... 'Stick'

    I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too... pass this
    along.

    I received that same e-mail, from my buddy in Switzerland yesterday, also. I may be nitpicking, but the phrase "the final weapon is the brain" seems backwards to me. Seems like that is the first weapon, guiding the rest, imho.

    That's some good stuff!

    I especially like this one: "If you find yourself in a fair fight... your tactics suck."
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    "A superior Operator is best defined as someone who uses his superior
    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    All funny but, this one is my favorite:

    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight... he'll
    just kill you.

    I can identify with...

    "Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight... he'll
    just kill you."


    Stay armed...it increases your chances of growing old...stay safe!

    I always liked this one:

    The only fair fight is the one you lose.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
