    First Bubba,
    I have a signed copy of the book! I met Mr. Jordan when he was writing for Shooting Times, and we had the U.S. Marine Corps in common, so dialogue seemed easy. He was hearing-impaired at the time and we joked about hearing aid batteries. I wasn't aware of the AD and subsequent fatality.

    That was the name of Jordan's book, "No Second Place Winner"
    Jordan was an exhibition shooter and was very good in that respect.
    As a BP agent?
    Legend has it the only man he killed was a fellow agent.
    The story goes the agent was in his office, polishing his boots.
    Bill was in the next office, practicing his "fast draw" when he dropped his gun, resulting in an accidental discharge.
    Unfortunately for the agent in the next office, the bullet struck him in the head.

    I'm reminded of Bill Jordan's comment: "There's no second place winner in a gunfight."

    Sounds similar to Murphy's Law of Combat.

    remember- Incoming bullets have the right of way!

    rules for a gunfight
    #1 Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns. Bring their friends who have guns. Make sure everyone brings their OWN ammo.
    #2 If you can, make friends with those highly skilled on “Crew Served Weapons” Bring them as well. Borrow lots of money from them, it gives them an added incentive to protect you.
    #3 Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    #4 Only hits count. Close doesn’t count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
    #5 If your shooting stance is good, you’re probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.
    #6 Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
    #7 If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a couple of friends with long guns.
    #8 In ten years time, no one will ever remember the details of what caliber you used; the stance you used; or what shooting tactics you used. History will only remember those who lived and usually forgets those who didn’t.
    #9 If you are not shooting, you should be doing 3 things: Communicating, Reloading, and Running.
    # 10 Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting is more dependent on “pucker factor” than the inherent accuracy of the gun in your hand.
    #11 Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. “All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.”
    #12 Someday, someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it was empty.
    #13 In combat, there are no rules: Always Cheat; Always Win! The only unfair gun fight is the one you lose.
    #14 Have a plan.
    #15 Have a back-up plan, because the first one won’t work.
    #16 Have a secondary back-up plan to your primary back-up plan no good plan last over 10 seconds after the first shot.
    #17 Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The only visible target should be the one in your gun sights.
    #18 Flank your adversary whenever possible.
    #19 Protect your flank at all costs.
    #20 Don’t drop your guard.
    #21 Always tactical reload and threat scan 360 degrees.
    #22 Watch their hands. Hands kill! Gun Fighter’s Motto: In God we trust! Everyone else, Keep your hands where I can see them.
    #23 Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
    The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
    #24 Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet as quickly as possible.
    #25 Be courteous to everyone, over friendly to no one.
    #26 Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to three skill sets: Avoidance, Deterrence, and De-Capitation.
    #27 Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with at least a ”4…”
