USMC Rules for Gunfighting
From Geoff Metcalf.com Link to the entire list
1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all your friends who have guns.
2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Your life is expensive.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a ".4"
