FAVORITE GUNFIGHTER QUOTES

I amassed a small collection of quotes attributed to a set of respected fighters that I wanted to share below…

swanson

JEFF COOPER

“Life is hopelessly complex for people who have no principles.”

“Remember the first rule of gunfighting- have a gun.”

“Peril, not variety is the spice of life. Cowardice, not cupidity, is the root of all evil.”

“Safety is nice, but it’s not first. Life is first and it’s not safe.”

“One cannot legislate the maniacs off the street. These maniacs can only be shut down by an armed citizenry…”

CLINT SMITH

“The two most important rules in a gunfight are- always cheat and always win.”

“Don’t forget that incoming fire has the right of way.”

“Do something. It may be wrong, but do something.”

“You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it.”

“Don’t shoot fast, shoot good.”

PHIL MESSINA

“Never cover a gallant heart with a timid hand.”

“It takes an instant to create a hero. It takes a lifetime to create a warrior.”

“If you expect perfection you will become your own worst enemy. Perfection does not win fights, perseverance does.”

“Martyrs alert the world to the presence of evil. Warriors do something about it.”



These are just a few quotes from some men of notoriety in the gun world.

Can you add any more?

"Fast is fine. Accuracy is final. You need to learn to shoot slow, real fast." -Wyatt Earp
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

doubt it was actually said but it was cool in Tombstone when a guy thought he could take Doc by himself because Doc was drunk. Doc said, "I got two guns, one for each of you"

When the metal nylon-covered crotch piece fell to the floor with a resounding clunk, all three turned toward the sound and pointed their handguns in my direction. The next thing I knew I heard shots. I felt my Model 10 Smith & Wesson bucking in my hands, and I was asking myself mentally, ‘Who the hell is shooting my gun?’

When we land against the enemy, don't forget to hit him and hit him hard. When we meet the enemy we will kill him. We will show him no mercy. He has killed thousands of your comrades and he must die. If your company officers in leading your men against the enemy find him shooting at you and when you get within two hundred yards of him he wishes to surrender – oh no! That bastard will die! You will kill him. Stick him between the third and fourth ribs. You will tell your men that. They must have the killer instinct. Tell them to stick him. Stick him in the liver. We will get the name of killers and killers are immortal. When word reaches him that he is being faced by a killer battalion he will fight less. We must build up that name as killers.

"Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that? "

I have it on good authority that a certain MP sergeant, while chasing a robbery suspect in an undisclosed foreign location, shouted, "Stop, or you're one dead hooch m*&^*&^%(%r!"

.....and he stopped.

(I could have SWORN that what I shouted was "alto o disparo")
