The Law To all you old law dogs now just lyin' in the shade; current pistoleros and other fervent Second Amendment believers: I would rather be your friend, but if you are not interested in that, I am prepared to be a capable and efficient enemy. ~ Jeff Cooper This is the law: (1)The purpose of fighting is to win. (2)There is no possible victory in defense. (3)The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. (4) The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental." ~ John Steinbeck The Natural Rules of Life 1- Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you. 2- If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics probably stink. 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, remember the cops are just minutes away, the bad guy beats that. 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, "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?" The old sheriff responded; "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle." 9- Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it!
