SSD’s Humble Beginnings

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Not a lot of people know that SSD finds its roots in a website launched in 1997 called ‘Gear Guru – Equipment Resources for the Armed Professional’. Since then I’ve written a few times for print publications, but beginning in 2008 my main focus has been SSD. I’ve never written for any of the other blogs. Additionally, despite rumors to the contrary, SSD has not been purchased by another website. Those rumors were caused by an unfortunate incident with a badge at SHOT show.

Gear Guru’s landing page contained a few simple tidbits of wisdom I had assembled as well as links to the various content pages. Everything was categorized on individual pages and all of it was created in html and very time consuming. Undoubtedly, everyone’s favorite was the Links page. Thank goodness for WordPress which I use now and makes this easy.

Here’s the full words of wisdom list. I think it’s just as poignant today as when I originally published it almost 15 years ago. Maybe you can use some of it.

-LIFE IS HARD…ITS HARDER WHEN YOU’RE STUPID
-IF ITS STUPID BUT IT WORKS…IT ISN’T STUPID
-NEVER BRING A KNIFE TO A GUN FIGHT (LAW OF GROSS WEIGHT AND HEAVY CALIBER)
-NEVER FIGHT FAIR
-THINK WAR
-DENY EVERYTHING…ADMIT NOTHING…MAKE COUNTER ACCUSATIONS
-EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
-THERE IS NO SECOND PLACE IN A GUN FIGHT-WINNERS KILL, LOSERS GET KILLED, FIGHT TO WIN- TRAIN TO LIVE
-NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON A THREAT
-YOU FIGHT AS YOU TRAIN
-LEARN IT RIGHT AND YOU’LL DO IT RIGHT THE REST OF YOUR LIFE LEARN IT WRONG AND SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT
-A WARRIOR IS HARD FROM THE INSIDE OUT
-FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO WIN THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME TO TRAIN
-AGGRESSIVELY SEEK ANY KNOWLEDGE WHICH WILL ASSURE MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT AND MAKE YOU A SURVIVOR AND A WINNER
-IT TAKES A SHOOTER TO LEAD A SHOOTER
-USE A SIMPLE TEMPLATE WHEN DECIDING THE VALUE OF SOMETHING EVERYTHING EITHER HAS TACTICAL VALUE OR IT DOES NOT
-ACTIVELY SEEK NEW TTPs AND EQUIPMENT THAT COULD MAKE YOUR UNIT MORE CAPABLE IN COMBAT
-EVERY DAY, ASK YOURSELF, “WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR MY UNIT?”
-BE SNEAKY, STEALTHY, AND DO THE UNEXPECTED WITHOUT BEING DETECTED
-FRONT SIGHT….FRONT SIGHT….BY GOD, FRONT SIGHT
-DON’T CONFUSE ENTHUSIASM WITH CAPABILITY

These Words of Wisdom Have Been Gleaned From a Variety of Sources.
Thanks to all of you who have taught me so much over the years.
Looking for a copy of Lobo’s Laws to add to the list. Can anyone help?
