Words Of Wisdom

Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part drill
instructor, and part standup comic (Thunder Ranch is a
firearms training facility in Arizona ).

Here are a few of his observation on tactics, firearms, self
defense and life as we know it in the civilized world.

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

"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way.."

"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're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not
loadin', you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's
gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick."

"When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your
flashlight in your back pocket.. If you light yourself up,
you'll look like an angel or the tooth fairy... and you're
gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

"Do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

"Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until
something else becomes available."

"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."

"Don't shoot fast, unless you also shoot good.."

"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."

"Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you'll have us or until
someone makes us go away, and either way, it will be exciting."

More Excellent Gun Wisdom.......

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible
victory in defense. The sword is more important than the
shield, and skill is more important than either. The final
weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to
fight, he'll just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers.
The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was
carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger
responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous
regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady
commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have
your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No ma'am. If I were
expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

8. Beware of the man who only has one gun, because he probably
knows how to use it very well.


9. The caliber of any concealed carry gun should always begin
with "4".


'The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front
of him, but because he loves what is behind him.' G. K. Chesterton

A people that values its privileges above its principles will
soon lose both.

*If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, please forward..*
