    Comments and sayings from various Conceal Carry Instructors

    It is always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
    And you can take that to the bank.

    Words of Wisdom:

    If you own a gun, you will appreciate this.
    If not, you should get one and learn how to use it.

    Shooting Advice:

    Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not to protect you.

    'Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm’s length and never say "I’ve got a gun". If you feel you need to use deadly force, for heaven’s sake let the first sound they hear be the safety clicking off. They
    shouldn't have time to hear anything after that if you are doing your job.'

    'The average response time of a 911 call is over 23 minutes, the response time of a 9mm/.357 or .44 magnum is 1400 feet per second.'

    "The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win - and cheat if necessary."

    "Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. You may get killed with your own gun, but he'll have to beat you to death with it, cause it's going to be empty."

    "If you end up in a gun fight, if you're not shooting, you should be loading.
    If you're not loading, you should be moving, if you're not moving, your dead."

    "In a life and death situation, do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

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

    "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."

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

    "You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family."

    "If you find yourself in a fair fight, you Tatics suck. "

    "The most important thing in a gunfight, don't get shot. "

    "do nothing that is of no use"- Musashi.

    "If a shotgun could speak, it would have only a very limited vocuabulary:

    click-CLAK means "HALT! Who goes there!"
    BOOM! means "Did you feel lucky, punk?"
    click means "I'm hungry, FEED ME!"

    My Dad used to always tell me this:

    "It is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it"

    I do not know where he quoted from.

    From a poster where I used to work, showing a picture of a rusted-out wreck of a ship on the rocks:

    "Have you considered that perhaps you purpose in life was to show others how not to do it?"

    "Your thoughts should never stray far from your loved ones; your point of aim should never stray far from center body mass"

    (I made that up, use it in our FA classes)

    The Police exist to maintain peace and order.
    They were not put there to be at your beck and call.
    Their job involves danger, and violence
    In order to spare you the same.

    (another one I use in my FA classes)

    Mortars-Splash over.

    On a small board, beneath steel plate cutout of a revolver:

    "Around here, we don't use 911"

    (I was told Ted Nugent has this on a ranch someplace, as a roadside marker. don't know if it's true or not)
  15. I could read these all day and take each one to heart. I don't feel I have one worthy to follow the ones already listed. I have heard most of those in classes or conversation.

    The I do remember has been re-done using a SWAT or USMC sniper, when asked "What was the first thing you felt when you shot ______?" and a quick reply of "Recoil".
