    Rules For Survival

    ATFpoa: This list of rules for survival has been passed around for years. It has made its way back to me via e-mail. Since it has been awhile since I have seen it here, I thought I would share it with anyone who hasn't seen it. Of course, I have lost track of who the author is, so if anyone knows who deserves the credit, speak up.

    RULES FOR SURVIVAL

    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. Always seek cover... or at the very least, concealment.
    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. Don't drop your guard.
    16. Better to have mastered a skill that you don't need than to need a skill that you've not mastered.
    A society that makes war against its police had better learn to make friends with criminals. - unknown

    18. STAY IN SHAPE PHYSICALLY, so the perp gasses out before you. The only thing more tragic than getting killed, is getting killed because you tired and gassed out.

    19. When there is a doubt - there is no doubt. Always think the worse.

    20. Watch your suspect's body language...watch for indicators whether he/she is getting ready to attack you....

    21. WATCH YOUR 6...WATCH YOUR BACK...WATCH YOUR REAR

    22. Listen and watch to your senior LEO's, you'll learn the good things and what not to do

    23. If you act under scope of your authority and you are able to articulate your actions, you'll always be right

    Act FIRST and act FAST

    If you are going to hit someone, HIT them and put them down. THEN talk! No tap and talk!

    As everyone already knows....speed, surprise and violence of action will carry you home.

    Be safe!!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!
