Gun Wisdom.......

  • 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.
  • Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
  • 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 of the man who only has one gun, because he probably knows how to use it very well. '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
