3 Reasons Every Gunfighter Should Learn to Box

“I don’t need to know Karate, I know Ching-Ching.” (mimics racking the slide on a pistol) so said the man standing at the counter in a small gun store many years ago. In my younger days, I spent a great deal of time at gun shops and at gun shows. Sadly, most everyone one who frequented gun stores, at least in my experience, viewed themselves to be a gunfighter.

While I did indeed glean quite a bit of knowledge about firearms, cartridge choices, and handloading, the actual gunfighting or tactical advice offered was generally abysmal. Conversations about the M1911 and .45 acp cartridge were endless. The terms “knock-down power” and “stopping power” were thrown about with reckless abandon.

The previously mentioned “Ching-Ching” comment, meaning, “I have a gun. I don’t need martial arts,” was a common thought process. Other assertions, such as “I might not know Karate, but I know 45.” or “You might know Kung fu, but I know John Browning.”, were frequent.

While these folks might have been trying to be cute or funny, the fact was most truly believed that being a gun owner — few if any actually carried guns — negated the need to engage in physical or martial art type training.
