  • USMC rules for a gunfight....

    USMC Rules for Gun fighting;

    1. Bring a gun. Preferably two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
    2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
    4. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
    5. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
    6. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    7. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
    8. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket."
    9. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
    10. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
    11. Have a plan.
    12. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
    13. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
    14. Flank your adversary when possible and always protect yours.
    15. Never drop your guard.
    16. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
    17. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust...everyone else keep your hands where I can see them).
    18. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH...hesitation kills.
    19. The faster you finish the fight, the less injured you will get.
    20. Be polite. Be professional. And have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
    21. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    22. Your number one option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
    23. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun the caliber of which does not start with a "4."

    ...And shephards we shall be. For thee my lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand. That our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to thee. And teeming with souls shall it ever be. E Nomini Patri, E Fili, E Spiritu Sancti.
