Words Of Wisdom

Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part drill instructor, and part
stand-up 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

"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

"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. If you’re leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun.

10. That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.

11. There is no ‘overkill.’ There is only ‘open fire’ and ‘time to reload.’

'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, you ought to take these words of wisdom to heart. Learn them,believe them,and live them. Most especially the last one.

One thing I would like to discuss is that weightloss routine fast can be performed by the perfect diet and exercise. A person's size not merely affects the look, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, in addition to physical skills are affected in weight gain. It is possible to make everything right and at the same time having a gain. In such a circumstance, a problem may be the perpetrator. While too much food and never enough exercising are usually at fault, common medical ailments and widely used prescriptions could greatly add to size. I am grateful for your post in this article.
