    Clint Smith Humor (?)

    Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part drill Instructor, and part stand-up comic. Here are a few of his observations on tactics, firearms, self defense and life as we know it in the Civilized world.\

    1. "The handgun would not be my choice of weapon if I knew I was going to a fight . . . I'd choose a rifle, a shotgun, an RPG or an atomic bomb instead."

    2. "The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win."

    3. "Every time I teach a class, I discover I don't know something."

    4. "Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."

    5. "Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. I may get Killed with my own gun, but he's gonna have to beat me to death with it, 'cause it's going to be empty."

    6. "If you're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not loadin', you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick."

    7. "When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your flashlight in your back pocket. If you light yourself up, you'll look Like an angel or the tooth fairy . . . and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

    8. "Do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

    9. "Nothing adds a little class to a sniper course like a babe in a Ghilliesuit."

    10. "Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available."

    11. "If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous! If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for."

    12. "Don't shoot fast, shoot good."

    13. "You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or use any other word you think will work but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language."

    14. "You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it."

    15. "You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family."


    More Excellent Gun Wisdom.......

    16. 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. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

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

    18. 'The true Soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.' ~G. K. Chesterton

    19. A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both. ~ D.D.Eisenhower

    20. 'Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.' ~ Thomas Jefferson
