    "USMC AND NAVY RULES FOR GUNFIGHTING"


    USMC Rules For Gunfighting

    1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

    2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

    3. Only hits count.

    4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.

    5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movements are preferred.)

    6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.

    7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

    8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.

    9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.

    10. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME.

    11. Someday someone may try to kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    12. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

    13. Have a plan.

    14. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.

    15. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.

    16. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

    17. Don't drop your guard.

    18. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.

    19. Watch their hands. Hands kill.

    20. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.

    21. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot up you will get.

    22. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    23. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

    24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a "4."

    This just in. You can no longer call a marine a "jar head". It has been shown that you can put something into a jar!!!!!
