    Question Google failure... Looking for a quote...

    Not sure if it's one I read here or elsewhere...

    Something along the lines of "When you've taken all you can stand and you can't stand any more; grab your rifle and head out to your front lawn. If you are the only one standing in their yard: it's not time yet. If there are others standing in their yard... it's time"

    If anyone knows the original text for this or can provide a link it will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanx in advance for the help...

    That's a quote I've used in my sig line... I have no attribution for it... but I liked and used it often...

    This is the quote:

    "When you get angry enough, grab your rifle and run outside. If you're the only one there, it's not time yet!"

    I still cannot find an attribution...

    The 1st time I saw it was in an article by Gabe Suarez. I'm not sure if he's the original author though. (I think it may have originally come from Col. Cooper.)

    OH! And are we still going to go with "Redcoats?" Thanks for bringing that up kerberos, I've been wondering.

    It seems that most of the links to the entire phrase in quotes lead to me...

    Though I think I first saw it on a HiPoint firearm forum...

    Still want to use it?

    ^^^^

    Not if it came from anything associated with HiPoint...

    I'm much too high-class Glockified for that...


    Joking of course!


    Several threads lately I'd thought about using this quote and just wanted to give credit where due...



    Oh, and yes, if you could find it I'd appreciate it.

    Went outside this morning and I was the only one out there...

    I guess it's not time yet...

    Although I did see a few people looking out the windows!!!

    If one of us stands on the other's shoulders, we could at least see farther... you know, just to make sure...
