The following remarks regarding gun wisdom are likely spread throughout the forum, but I just wanted to put them out again for your amusement. Surely, 100s of other similar remarks are throughout the sigs.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
As John Steinbeck once said:
1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll
just kill you.
2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
3. I carry a gun 'cause a cop is too heavy.
4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.
5. 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.'
6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.
7. 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.'
8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!
But wait, there's more!
I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a loaded gun in the house.
I said, Of course it's loaded, it won't work without bullets!' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your house?' My reply was, 'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are 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.
I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please
'The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him,
but because he loves what is behind him.' -

My art is different from yours; it consists not in defeating others, but in not being defeated.
It is bad for one to fight another, but it is worse to fight and lose.
You can prevent your opponent from defeating you through defense, but you cannot defeat him without taking the offensive.
Beginners talk about gear and skill. Experienced gunmen talk about mindset and tactics.
None too small to carry; none too large in a gunfight.
To need and not have WORTHLESS To have and not need PRICELESS.
Situations dictate strategy, strategy dictates tactics, and tactics dictate techniques.
Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.
The purpose of the pistol is to stop a fight that somebody else has started, almost always at very short range.
The Pistol. Learn it well; wear it always.
...and my sig
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
