  • 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 pricey.
  • 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 gun to bring a gunfight, bring a long gun, and a friend with a long gun.
  • 7. In ten years, nobody will remember the details of the gunfight, such as your caliber, stance, or tactics. They will remember who walked away after the gunfight.
  • 8. If you are not shooting, your ass should be reloading.
  • 9. Accuracy is relative; most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the shot fired.
  • 10. Use a gun that works EVERY time. Remember, "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 a bloody pulp with it because it's empty.
  • 12. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
  • 13. Have a plan.
  • 14. Have a backup plan, because the first one will fail.
  • 15. Use cover and concealment as much as possible. The visible target should be in FRONT of your gun.
  • 16. Flank your adversary's ass if possible. Protect your own.
  • 17. Don't drop your guard.
  • 18. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
  • 19. Watch their hands. Hands kill. Everyone else, keep your damn hands where I can see them.
  • 20. Decide to be aggressive enough quick enough.
  • 21. Speed counts. The faster you finish the fight, the less you get shot.
  • 22. Be polite. Be professional. But be sure to have a definite 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 or a 9. The bigger the number, the bigger the hole!
  • 26. Do not expect Daniel to start shooting first.
  • 27. Expect Shannon, Ma'at, Cam, the Tok'ra, me or Teal'c to shoot first.
  • 28. Never leave anyone behind.

    [after Kitt has left]

    Hattie stomped her way upstairs and into their bedroom, looking around the spacious room with anger. Why she suddenly hated the room, she wasn't sure, but she did. She hated it. Maybe it was the color scheme, maybe it was the fabrics. Maybe she'd spent too much time in it recently. Whatever it was, she didn't want to be in it any longer, so she changed into a pair of jeans and a huge sweater that hung almost to her knees.

    She pulled open her nightstand drawer and yanked out her journal, a huge massive notebook that she'd been keeping notes in from the time they'd arrived in the whole 'new world' bit. It chronicled everything she could remember about being there... and not. Maybe, she thought, just maybe her dig at Kitt about knowing his wife had been a bit low. And then? She didn't care again and grabbed her set of pens out of the drawer, too. She wasn't one to just journal in one color. It made it boring. Instead, she doodled as she thought, scribbling across margins and pages just to get a few thoughts about a single subject down.

    Going into the formal living room, she curled up in the large cushioned chair there next to the fireplace and started thinking...

    And drawing and thinking and doodling and thinking... )
