A home invader's worst nightmare -

If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. 
If not, you should get one and learn how to use it.

Shooting Advice:

Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not to protect you. 

Never let someone or thing that threatens you get inside arm’s length and 
never say "I’ve got a gun".  If you feel you need to use deadly force for 
heaven’s sake let the first sound they hear be the safety clicking off, and 
they shouldn't have time to hear anything after that if you are doing your job. 

'The average response time of a 911 call is over 23 minutes  the response 
time of a .44 magnum is 1400 feet per second.'

Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is a drill instructor (Thunder 
Ranch is a firearms training facility in Arizona ).  Here are a few of his 
observations 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 shooting, you should be loading.  If you're not loading, you 
should be moving, if you're not moving, someone's going to 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 going to 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're 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 may not 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."
