Never let someone or thing that threatens you get inside arms length, and never say "I've got a gun".
If you feel you need to use deadly force, for heaven’s sake let the first sound they hear be the safety clicking off; they shouldn't have time to hear anything else if you are doing your job.
And my favorite.
'The average response time of a 911 call is over 3 minutes...the response time of a .44 magnum is 1400 feet per second.

Shooting advice by Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch. (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, 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, don't put your flashlight in your 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 carry a gun, paranoid about what?"
"Don't shoot fast, unless you also shoot well."
"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 too.'
8. Beware of the man who has only one gun, because he probably knows very well how to use it.

'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.
