"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around
reloading."

In a gunfight, the most important rule is ..... HAVE A GUN!!!

These are shooting tips from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own
a gun, you will appreciate these rules... If not, you should get one, learn
how to use it and learn the rules.

RULES

A : Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B : Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

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

D : Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm's
length.

E : Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first
sound they should hear is the safety clicking off or the hammer cocking.

F : The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time
of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G : The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always Win - there is no such
thing as a fair fight. Always Win - cheat if necessary. Always Win - 2nd
place doesn't count

H : 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
because it will be empty .

I : If you're in a gun fight: (a) If you're not shooting, you should be
loading. (b) If you're not loading, you should be moving. (c) If you're
not moving, you're dead.

J : In a life and death situation, do something .... it may be wrong, but do
something !

K : If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you
have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

L : You can say "stop" or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed
at someone's head is pretty much a universal language; and, you won't have
to press 1 for Spanish/Mexican or 2 for Chinese or 3 for Arabic.

M : Never leave an enemy behind. If you have to shoot, shoot to kill. In
court, yours will be the only testimony.

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

​O: It's more important to be accurate than quick, but unless you are really lucky learn to be accurate quickly.

P: ​
“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” ― Dalai Lama XIV

I'd like to edit this:
From:
E : Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first
sound they should hear is the safety clicking off or the hammer cocking.

To:
E: Never say "I've got a gun". If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they should hear is "POW" or "POW, POW, POW"!

Rule#1: The gunfight is the last resort. Maintain situational awareness and avoid the fight whenever possible. if you have to fight—win.

While humorous, most of those rules will put you in jail.

Yes, fights are fought for victory, but a fight avoided is never lost. Injured pride from walking away is easier to live with than dying because you stayed and fought. Heck, ask Zimmerman how easy "winning" is.

Aware, alert, responsive

Please tell me which ones other than "M : Never leave an enemy behind. If you have to shoot, shoot to kill. In
court, yours will be the only testimony" would get you convicted and in self defense I would change it to M. shoot to stop threat keep shooting until threat is gone
