Gun Quotes

In researching several topics, I keep coming up with quotes from several handgunners of note. Some of them are well known, others may be the sort that gets lost in the pages of history. There is a great deal of wisdom in this kind of stuff, and I thought that readers would be interested in seeing what the old-timers were thinking about and also how they expressed themselves. Some of the language seems stilted and awkward, but I think you’ll agree that they can really make a point that is as true today as it was a century back. How about this one?

“No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.”

If that doesn’t make the point, I don’t know what will. Apparently spray-‘n-pray was a problem in the 1880s when Theodore Roosevelt penned those words. Feel free to let me know what great gun quotes you like.
