Not sure what I'm doing wrong here, but I've even saved the doc above as a text file before copying over, and can't get all the CRAP to go away.
Any tips, other than the time-consuming delete process?

The handgun would not be my choice of weapon if I knew I was going to a fight.... I'd choose a rifle, a shotgun, an RPG or an atomic bomb instead.

The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win.

Every time I teach a class, I discover I don't know something.

Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way.

Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. I may get killed with my own gun, but
he's gonna have to beat me to death with it, 'cause it's going to be empty.

If you're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not loadin', you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick.

When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your flashlight in your back pocket.. If you light yourself up, you'll look like an angel or the tooth fairy...and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon.

Do something. It may be wrong, but do something.

Nothing adds a little class to a sniper course like a babe in a Ghillie suit.

Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available.

If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for?

Don't shoot fast, shoot good.

You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or use any other word you think will work but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language.

You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it.

You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family.

Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you'll have us or until someone makes us go away and either way it will be exciting.

So do you!



In the past, I would've gone thru and deleted all those il arrows, but it'd be nice to know how to just not have them show up in the first place.
