  • Fast Is Fine, But Accuracy Is Final In A Gunfight

    Quote: This shooting in St. Louis is an example of the “get the shots off quickly” mindset can fail in real-life encounters against a determined adversary. Marcus Portis had the element of surprise and launched an ambush on a man in a vehicle in what should have been a relatively simple attack to complete successfully. He failed, however, to make a single effective hit, missing his intended victim repeatedly and leaving him only with a thigh wound.

    Despite being behind the curve, the victim was able to regroup, draw his own firearm, and put effective shots on Portis that killed him in his tracks.

    Smart man that Earp fellow...
    The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his/her rifle.

      You can't miss fast enough to win a gunfight.

      Go, Trump, Go!

          It helps to have a private range, to practice weak
          hand, one hand, and emergency response. Many public ranges
          frown upon defensive practice.

            Nothing stops the other guy from shooting at you quite like killing him.

            I will not lay down.
            I WILL, however, assume a prone firing position if necessary!
