Yeah I've noticed that. Funny thing , I heard about the strip years ago while hanging out at THR.
John Wayne/John Bernard Books in The Shootist:
First of all,friend, there's no one up there shooting back at you. Second, I found most men aren't willing, they bat an eye, or draw a breath before they shoot. I won't.
And of course:
I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
Clint Eastman/Gunnery Sergeant Highway in Heartbreak Ridge and R.Lee Ermey as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket have, as most of us know, several outstanding quotes. For obvious reasons I won't print those here.
I just read this one in the March, 2019 issue of True West magazine:
“A friend of mine told me to shoot first and ask questions later. I was going to ask him why, but, I had to shoot him first.”
John Wayne, on Laugh In.
I read this somewhere as a response when asked "Why do you carry a gun?"
"Because I'm too old to fight, but too young to die."
Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6
My father always said to me you shoot it you eat it.
Just because your customer can’t get something to work correctly does not mean that its broken.
Just because it gets damaged in shipping does not make it your fault. Maybe it is, maybe not.
And that minor problem your customer is having is most likely not catastrophic.
However, your desire to take your customers money is real. So, you get to take their crap. It comes with their money.

Keep calm and aim for the head.

I just taught my daughter 2 is 1. That’s important in a lot of areas in life. I was changing a tire on the mower, and had her helping me, mower jacked up with jack stand under the spindle...”daddy why do you need 2 lifters” “because if one breaks then this heavy mower won’t land on top of me” which was all followed by me smackingthe handle of the jack to knock it loose scaring the snot out of her and making her appreciate the jack stand as a safety measure. After that she asked if that’s why I have a little battery motor on the front of the boat, in case the big motor at the back quits working. Lesson seemed to sink in.
Shallow brooks are noisy.
I like no. 47; "Don't expect the enemy to cooperate in the creation of your dream engagement."
“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.”

My alarm tells me you're in my house. My gun tells me not for long.
Never insult seven men when all you're packing is a six-shooter.
3 bite rule
-Pete the Cat
One I have used many times is, " an unloaded gun is just a poorly designed club". Another one I saw years ago,, There are 3 ways to stop an attacker, "Penetrate the brain, smash the spine, or shoot the son of a bitch into a state of structural collapse."
There's nothing in this house worth your life and I don't call 911.
Happiness is a warm gun
And we now have the fifth generation of perfection.
To quote Inigo Montoya, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Wait... Glock hasn't been perfect for the last thirty years?
Then I would advise you not to take up skeet shooting.
It'd take a miracle!
My own contribution: A sentry hears a noise and after asking the noisemaker to identify himself, says "are you going to come out where I can see you and tell who you are or am I going to come over there and see who you used to be?"
