"Stick to your guns" is possibly better translated as "Não mude de opinião." It does not mean "Be strong" or "Be brave".

It is probably military in origin where it means "to keep fighting, not to abandone one's artillery pieces to the enemy."


Fig. to remain firm in one's convictions; to stand up for one's rights. (Fig. on a soldier remaining in place to fire a gun even when all appears to be lost.) I'll stick to my guns on this matter. I'm sure I'm right. Bob can be persuaded to do it our way. He probably won't stick to his guns on this point.
