    A few of my favorites:

    1. "I've got a firm policy on gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be the one controlling it."

    ~ Clint Eastwood

    2. "To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic."

    ~ Ted Nugent

    3. "That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."

    ~ George Orwell

    4. "A free people ought to be armed." ~ George Washington

    So many, I like my current sig line a lot even though it's not directly gun related. So, I'll stick up a bit-o me father's wisdom: "Ain't much more worthless than an unloaded gun."

    I love quotes. Here's one of my faves:

    The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun. -- P. G. Wodehouse


    People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first. -- David H. Comins

    "This is the handle thingie - the bit you hold. In front is the trikker - you have to pull that to fire the bullet. The long bit is the barrel - a tube with spinny grooves inside, that make the bullet turn. Those sticky-out things on top are called sighters - to help with hitting things"

    "This is the .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world. It'll blow your head clean off."

    Then I've always liked, "Stick around." But that was a knife...

    "An unarmed man can only flee evil. And Evil is not overcome by fleeing it." Jeff Cooper

    Not exactly on target, but still my favorite:

    "Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves." – Gary L. Griffiths (Paraphrasing John Stuart Mill)

    From the Unforgiven:
    "Dyeing ain't much of a living"
    "Hell of a thing to kill a man, you take all he's got and all he's ever going to have."

    "You going to skin that smoke-wagon or just stand there and bleed."
    "I'll be your Huckleberry."

    And of course the line about Sam Colt making all men equal :D

    Sure there are tons that will come to my mind later.

    "If you're going to shoot, shoot - don't talk!"

    Tuco, from The Good, The Bad And The Ugly - words very near and dear to my heart, because they kept me alive in some very nasty situations. The best close-quarters fighting advice I've ever received!
