Firearms Refresher Course

EDITED 2 November 2015

I got this in an email a long time ago. No idea who wrote it or where it originated…but I think it is very pertinent in the current climate. Thought I’d share.

There was an armed robbery thwarted in Chicago yesterday by a citizen with a CC permit. The criminal was killed and no one else was hurt. There was question as to whether the man who kept the robbery – or any other possible crime – from happening would be charged.

As always, reading through the “Comments” section of the story in question is enlightening and educational about people. One poster included the following and I thought I’d share here:

The 13 Rules of Gun Fighting

These are the rules of gun fighting everyone should know

Have a gun.

Some words to the wise. Shooting Advice from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If not, you should get one and learn how to use it.

1) Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

2) It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

3) Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you. (remember this truism at all times)

4) Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm’s length.

5) Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (“Glock’s” are the exception to this rule…)

6) The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second. (the police are there to fill out the crime scene report…make sure that you are still there to so that it’s an accurate report)

7) The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

8) 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’ll be empty.

9) If you’re 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 shooting, moving or loading, you’re probably dead… or soon to be.

10) In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!

11) If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

12) You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s forehead is pretty much….. universal language.

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