I'm not exactly a gun fan, but this website, which lists the rules of a gunfight, is simply genius. Funny, clever, and loaded with the truth. A few of my favorite rules include:
Forget about knives, bats and fists. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns. Bring four times the ammunition you think you could ever need.
Stretch the rules. Always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose
The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
Be courteous to everyone, overly friendly to no one.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
I am not very good at that last one.
