Editor's Note:

How do you win a gunfight? Yeah, we know: "bring a gun" (better still, bring two guns and two friends who have guns). Joking aside, today we feature a column by Chuck Remsberg that outlines John Farnam's 10 habits for winning a gunfight, a follow up to his previous column, Preparing for armed encounters in 2010.

What are your suggestions? Share your thoughts — your wisdom may one day keep a fellow cop alive.
