    Your favorite gun inspired saying

    We all have a favorite gun quip. It may be, I rather be tried by 12 than carried by six. Or it may be one that I got off this site, I would rather die with a gun in my hand than to live with my hands in the air. There are thousands of them.

    What is your favorite pro gun saying?

    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

    Glock Perfection!

    Or better yet: "the right of the people, to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
    [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. ---Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

    " It's damned adequate".

    Elmer Keith in rebuttal to Jack O'Conners endorsement of the 270 Winchester as the best long range big game rifle.

    " Bushido is all very well in its own way; however, it is no match for a 30 06."
    Jeff Cooper

    While auditing an FBI academy class, Jeff Cooper was asked not to use his 1911 pistol, as it may be an unfair advantage to which he made the statement;
    " Perhaps the first thing we should demand in a sidearm is that it be unfair".
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Several, including a few already posted, but this one always makes me grin:

    "Because they don't make a .46"

    And the best:

    "....the right of the people, to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

    Just ran across these:

    "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." -Alexander Hamilton

    "From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" -George Washington

    When asked "why'd you shoot him in the back?" - "his back was too me" - can't remember the movie though, had Louis Gosset Jr in it.

    Beware the man with only one gun, he most probably knows how to use it.

    The only way you can have too much ammo is if you're drowning or on fire.

    You just can't miss fast enough

    Speed's fine, but accuracy is final.
