Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part Drill Instructor, and part standup comic. Here are a few of his observations on tactics, firearms, self defense and life as we know it in the civilized world.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
"Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. I may get killed with my own gun, but he's gonna have to beat me to death with it, cause it's going to be empty."
"If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous.. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for."
"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."
"If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck."
"When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away."
"An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity."
"The two most important rules in a gunfight are: Always cheat and Always win."
"The handgun would not be my choice of weapon if I knew I was going to a fight....I'd choose a rifle, a shotgun, an RPG or an atomic bomb instead."
"You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family."
'The true Soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because He loves what is behind him.' - G. K. Chesterton
