    Default A surprise from the Taipan himself...

    While doing a little bit of light reading in preparation for the upcoming hard times, I find myself finding wise words from the Captain of our ship. This quote was featured in the 2011 book Survivors, by James Wesley, Rawles.

    (Jefe, I hope you got the proper contribution for your insight.)

    What do you know... right there on page 230. I have a handful of books from Hasher I am trying to read whenever I can make the time and Survivors is among them.

    I remember reading that quote (and Iíve seen Gabe say variants of it over the years, including in person at the HRO team tactics class, IIRC).

    Wow, this is incredible - thanks for sharing!

    I read Survivors right when it came out, and I have always remembered that quote. But, I didn't know about Gabe at the time, so the connection didn't click. I started following Gabe and WT about a year later but never revisited Survivors to match the name.

    Gabe - you were influencing me before I even realized it.

    Btw, this reminds me of another similar quote from Boston's Gun Bible:

    "A pistol is merely a weapon used to fight your way back to your rifle - which you shouldn't have left behind."

    That’s a good quote.
