The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun...Is a good guy with a gun!
Wayne LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President

You never have trouble if you are prepared for it!
Theodore Roosevelt

A hit with a .22 is better than a miss with a .45

Question: Did you Shoot to Kill?
Answer: No, I shot to live

If one must defend oneself, a small gun carried discreetly, is better than a big gun locked in the safe at home.

Accuracy is very important -You cannot miss fast enough to make a difference.

Every bullet that goes down the barrel can wind up having a lawyer attached to it.
Heidi Smith, Thunder Ranch

Most people will work harder to win a trophy than they will work to save their own life in a real gun fight.
Jeff Cooper, Gunsite

A gun in the hand beats a cop on the phone any day

Do unto others as they will do unto you…only do it first.
More American televisions have given their life to dry fire practice than for any other reason
Truth. Common sense. Filter any advice through both. If you ever have to actually use your combat handgun skills, you'll be glad you did.
Don't fall for hardball!
Don't alter the evidence!

If you hunt with your son today, you won't have to hunt for him tomorrow
Herb Parsons...Winchester Exhibition Shooter 1940's & 50's

The best way to win a fight is to not be where the fight is.

If you must fight, do it right.......Use the front sight!
Chuck Taylor

Walk like a lamb, be eaten by wolves!

If pro and con are opposites, wouldn't the opposite of progress be congress?

Shooting is very simple, but not necessarily easy.
Draw Quick, shoot slow.
You don't shoot the gun. You pull the trigger.
The most important thing in shooting is pulling the trigger without moving anything else.
Jerking is the result of anticipated muzzle flip.
The first shot is everything. If you miss, your next shot is your first shot.
Rob Letham

Generally a shooter's biggest enemy, in my opinion, is the four letters or what we call the four-letter word-F.A.S.T.
Clint Smith- Thunder Ranch

A concealed firearm should be comforting, not necessarily comfortable
Clint Smith, Thunder Ranch

Criminals don't fear guns. Criminals fear resolutely armed men or women they believe will actually shoot them.
Massad Ayoob, Lethal Force Institute

A fully loaded pistol is no use to the man who has an empty magazine between the ears.
Louis Awerbuck

The two loudest sounds in the world are:
1. Your gun going click when it's supposed to go bang.
2. Your gun going bang when it's supposed to go click.
Clint Smith, Thunder Ranch

A good description is always better than a confrontation.
Clint Smith, Thunder Ranch

It takes less time for an attcker to move four feet to stab someone than for the victim to move their trigger finger a quarter of an inch.
Criminals most ofter don't select a victim at random. They seek someone they can dominate. They would rather take $10.00 from from an easy victim than fight with a victim over $50.00
David Kenik, Combat Handguns Columnist

"No Gun-Zones" are tantamount to "Criminal Protection Zones": or CPZ's. Criminals by definition are those who disregard the law. Businesses who post Anti-Concealed Carry signs are telling the potential felon that all patrons and employees are helpless. "Come on in and rob us, you'll be safe from those scary gun-toters." If you've decided to take your safety seriously, do your utmost to stay out of CPZ's

Political Correctness
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
George Missbach as quoted in American Handgunner Magazine® Jan./Feb. 2008 Edition.

"No law ever written has stopped any robber, rapist or killer, like cold blue steel in the hands of their last intended victim."
W. Emerson Wright.
