    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. America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall.


    5. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. (but shoot first anyway, then call 911)


    6. 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 with, 'Because they don't make a .46.'


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


    8. 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.' (Winchester Model 94 30-30 Cal. and loaded with Winchester Silver Tips, no doubt).


    9. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!
    AMEN!


    To this I will add my comments. I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. To which I said I did. She said 'well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!' To which I said, 'of course it is loaded.' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your house?' My reply was,'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching afire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and THEY ARE ALL LOADED.'

    I would rather be judged by 12 people, then carried by 6.

    "5. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. (but shoot first anyway, then call 911) "

    The question is, "How do you want to spend those minutes?"


    It doesn't matter who starts a gun fight, it only matters who finishes it!

    Kel Tec P-11 w/Glazers. Nice and small w/lots of firepower. Easy to conceal - when I carry it, no one knows, or why; when I carry my Ruger P90 in 45... no one dares ask why!!

    As with EVERY firearm related subject - know your gun, be safe and PRACTICE!!!!

    I'd carry a gun just in case I ever met Lumper in person ... there is no other reason as important as that!

    Kimber Custom 1911 in .45.

    Locked, cocked, round in the chamber. Just as Dr. Browning intended.
