    • Ask not what men think of war, said the Judge. War endures. As well ask

    • I am use to being thought a monster, to be struggled against. That doesn't

      simplest thing in the world. - Renato Curcio

      A loner...
      I am not a part of the world...

      I live by the shadows and die by the shadows...
      I am always distant from everything else...
      I am fearful by strength...
      Invincible by distance...
      Being a sniper is the worst thing to be...
      Only hell can cleanse what we do.

    • It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a
      worthy cause; who if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. (from Marine Sniper by Charles Henderson.
    I Stand Alone

    I Stand Alone
    Against the darkness of night,
    My finger on the trigger
    Prepared for the fight.
    I did not choose
    The time nor place,
    And until now
    I've never seen his face.
    Twas not my choice
    to stop this strife,
    To be the one
    To take his life.
    And yet it seems
    It was my call,
    My destiny
    To stand on the wall.
    Someone had to...

    So I Stand Alone
    Yet surrounded by friends,
    Who like me bear the burden
    Of defending freedom till the end....

    -Steven P. Prince
    • Most stop when they begin to tire. Good men go until they think they are going to collapse, but the very best know that the mind tires before the body, and pushes themselves further and further....beyond all limits. Only when all of these limits have been shattered, can the unattainable be reached! (USMC)
    • It's better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.

    US Ranger Rules for Gunfighting
    1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends
    who have guns.

    2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is
    expensive.

    3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.

    4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor
    using cover correctly.

    5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral) and
    diagonal movement are preferred.)

    6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend
    with a long gun.

    7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or
    tactics. They will only remember who lived.

    8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.

    9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent
    on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.

    10. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses
    in the flintlock of your musket."

    11. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    12. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

    13. Have a plan.

    14. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.

    15. Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The visible target should be
    in FRONT of your gun.

    16. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

    17. Don't drop your guard.

    18. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.

    19. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your
    hands where I can see them).

    20. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.

    21. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

    22. Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    23. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

    24. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to
    avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.

    25. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not
    start with a "4".



    Navy Rules for Gunfighting

    1. Adopt an aggressive offshore posture
    2. Maintain a strong Combat Air Patrol over the fleet
    3. Send the Marines
    4. Drink Coffee

      stupid enough to try it, and lucky enough to survive.

      I lay sweat dripping from summer heat
      Yet I wait and watch them while they eat;
      The wait is over, their meal is done.
      I watch their movement, the wind, the sun.
      Slow, steady pressure,
      I aim, I squeeze;
      Pause for a moment, a passing breeze.
      My crosshairs steady,
      My trigger cold,
      I feel the recoil and watch him fold.
      They begin to scream and open fire,
      Bodies twist in razor wire.
      The mission accomplished,
      I grab my gear.
      I'll clean my rifle in the rear.

      -anonymous Marine Scout-Sniper


      Warriors always have great debates about the merits of the weapons they
      carry. It doesn't matter though because it comes down to this-----
      Caliber, actions, ammo capacity are for naught.
      It doesn't matter what gun you brought,
      'cause it's the only gun you got.
      So when the battles going to to start,
      The solution is to shoot them first,
      and shoot them allot!
      (anonymous Dept of Justice)


      "Eagerness for combat is an asset for a soldier, dangerous for a commander, and criminal for a politician."

      • The Misty Motto War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      The Silent Soldier By G.A.Codling A soldier crawls along a forest floor A match grade barrel to do his chore Blending with the woodland scene He leaves no trace of where he's been A single task occupies his mind To the outside world he is blind One single task, one single goal Only his mission occupies his soul He moves into the open grass The enemy patrol makes a searching pass although they look, they can not see the man moving out from a distant tree One hour, two , three then four He only moves a few feet more Zero hour is getting near He knows his target will soon appear A single man he has been se

      "It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."
