    Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part Drill
    Instructor and part stand-up comic. Here are a few of his observations on tactics, firearms, self defense and life as we know it in the civilized world.

    "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."

    "The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win."

    "Every time I teach a class, I discover I don't know something."

    "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're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not loadin, you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick."

    "When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your flashlight in your back pocket.. If you light yourself up, you'll look like an angel or the tooth fairy...and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

    "Do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

    "Nothing adds a little class to a sniper course like a babe in a Ghilliesuit."

    "Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available."

    "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?"

    "Don't shoot fast, shoot good."

    "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."

    "You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it."

    "You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family.."

    "Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you'll have us or until someone makes us go away and either way it will be exciting."

    More Excellent Gun Wisdom....... The purpose of fighting is to Win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

    4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

    5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers.
    The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they
    don't make a 46.'

    6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

    7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

    8. Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it!

    If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, please forward. '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

    A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both.. DDE

    'Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.'

    All very good but these were my favorites
    “The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    I guess that was before the .460 S&W or .460 Rowland. We won't even get into the .460 Weatherby Magnum.

    Little bit big imo for a practical SD round. I doubt I'll carry anything bigger than a .45 acp in an automatic or a .357 mag/.45 colt in a revolver. Though I do have a Judge laying around at home with .410 OOO buckshot in it

    Just curious, what kind of pattern are you getting with the Judge? I've been noticing .410 "handgun" loads in the store recently. Do you use those?

    I haven't had a chance to do some patterning on it yet. I doubt I could do that at any of the ranges around here so I've been waiting to go out to my buddies farm to try to pattern it.

    I have read many times that due to the rifling in the barrel that it will spread rather quickly makeing it a very short-range weapon. Because of that I have my first 2 rounds as shotshells and my last three are .45 colt Winchester silver tips.

    I'm not sure what you mean by .410 "handgun" loads. I use Sellier & Bellot .410 2 1/2 in OOO buckshot. It has 3 rather large pieces of shot per shell and they were very hard to find locally.

    Here's the .410 handgun ammo to which I referred:
