-USMC Rules For Gunfighting
1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating or reloading.
14. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
15. And above all ... don't drop your guard.

Navy Rules For Gunfighting
1. Go to Sea
2. Drink Coffee
3. Send the Marines

Army Rules For Gun fighting
1. Select a new beret to wear
2. Sew combat patch on right shoulder
3. Reconsider the color of beret you decide to wear
4. Send the Marines

US Air Force Rules For Gunfighting
1. Have a cocktail
2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner
3. Determine "what is a gunfight"
4. Send the Marines

Sounds like a soap opera or a lifetime movie.

If you drop a bullet at the same time a similar bullet is fired from a horizontal rifle on flat ground, the bullets would hit the ground at nearly the same time.

Most of the past year of my life has been like a weird messed up mash up of a lifetime soap country song.

In a vacuum, they would hit at the exact same time, theoretically.

apparently, the Internets sales guy, who was shagging the receptionist, was also selling a smorgasbord of drugs. He got into a fight with the GM. The GM is about 6'4"ish and 350 easy. The ISM is 5'11"ish, and 140 soaking wet. I'm sure we can all figure out how that went.

The Sales Manager, who, rumor has it, was also shagging the receptionist, ALLEGEDLY intentionally OD'd the GM, who is now dead as hell. I say allegedly, because the investigation is ongoing.

The ISM is still recovering from his beating that happened right on the showroom floor.

The receptionist is knocked up, and ain't too sure who the daddy is. She's 18. It also came out that she was shagging the GM too.

The lady I was talking to told me that there is also rumor the baby could be the dealer's, but that she honestly thinks it's only a rumor.

Glad I'm away from that place.

Oh, I didn't mention, the way they're all tied together is that the ISM was supposedly supplying drugs to all of them, and the receptionist's sexual habits.
Damn!! It's so boring where I work............

Thanks MM. That's not it but it's close and it'll do to make my friend laugh. The one I was thinking of went something like..........in boot camp, Marines carry 100 lb packs and walk 40 miles a day.....and ended with the Air Force guys get pissed when they lose the remote and have to get up to change the channel on the TV.

It's just a joke. I love all you Air Force guys and gals......

Im still slightly disappointed.... I was hoping to have a "new" car today. I just replaced all the brakes, rebuilt the carburetor, and replacing the struts was the last thing...

I wanted to see how much of a difference replacing everything at once made.... Now its gonna run & stop better, but still ride like crap....
