Winning A Gunfight

In September copies of “Winning A Gunfight” were sent to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office and the Gurley and Pleasant Grove Police Departments. 

On June 17, Gurley police officers and Madison County deputies were working together to serve an outstanding warrant in the Gurley community. When they attempted to make the arrest, the suspect ran into the woods and began to fire upon officers. The suspect was wounded when officers returned fire. Fortunately, law enforcement was not wounded in this incident. 

On September 23, a suspect was wounded during an officer-involved shooting with officers from Pleasant Grove.

Anytime there is an officer-involved shooting, Blue Watch will send copies of “Winning A Gunfight”, to any department. “Winning A Gunfight” was written by retired San Antonio Police Department sergeant and now ordained pastor Tim Rupp. Tim addresses the emotional and spiritual aspects of gunfights. This is a must read for any officer that has ever been involved in an officer-involved shooting. 

If you or someone you know has been involved in a gun battle and would like a copy of the book, let us know. We will send you a copy at no charge. Simply email us at

The people of Alabama support their officers and they stand ready to help.

Get Involved

There are many ways to support the Blue Watch mission:

  • Pray – we need prayer warriors who will pray for us on an ongoing basis and at special events.
  • Volunteer – we are in need of people who will help manage our website, social media and other aspects of the ministry. If the mission of Blue Watch is of interest to you and you have a skillset to offer, consider Blue Watch.
  • Donate – it takes money to make all of this happen. The Lord greatly blessed us in 2020, but to continue our progress will require increased giving. You can give online or by check.

If any of these are of interest to you, please email us at
