I will start.

I may be killed by my gun, but you will have to beat me to death with it, because it is going to be empty. ----Clint Smith

Continue shooting until your

Continue shooting until your sight picture is degraded by a lack of target. -Evan Marshal, Detroit PD

 

The ability to shoot straight is that part of national security which affects the individual more than any other. - Merritt "Red Mike" Edson; CMOH-USMC

It's not how fast you can shoot at the Six plates of a plate rack.  It's how fast you you can hit the plates.            ------ TGO

"A free people ought not only

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."

To prohibit a citizen from

To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. - Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at , 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)

Sorry to load up a bunch but

Sorry to load up a bunch but they all go together.

I don’t carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed..

I don't carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry. I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

"Police Protection" is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves.

Police do not protect you from crime; they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a butt whoopin'.

Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes. The average response time of my carry gun is 1100 FPS.

"If you plan to leave early, please arrive early to help set up. If you arrive late, please stay late to help take down. If you plan to arrive late and leave early, please do your shooting someplace else."

Some of those are really great. No, they are all really great. I would like to borrow one of them if I may. I particularly like this one:

In the spirit of IDPA. It was not intentional. However I may have earned an FTDR.  I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

"It is easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission". Bill Wilson probably wrote that one when he laid out the rule book.cool

An FTDR fer shur. Aaaaand, if

An FTDR fer shur. Aaaaand, if I may point out... ya gotta cite the quote to make it official. Fer instance:

The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state-controlled police and military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military. The hired servants of our rulers. Only the government - and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws.  - Edward Abbey "The Right to Arms" [New York, 1979]

Here's an oldy but

Here's an oldy but goodie...

"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"

Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)
