    It must have been a .22, .32, or a .38. The guy carried five shots with him as he escaped.

    The husband told 911 it was a .38. It's probably a good thing for the perp that it was only a 6 shot revolver. I had to cheer, when I heard the husband tell her to "shoot him again".

    We had another one yesterday here in Georgia...elderly man was home when two goblins broke into his home while he was there...long story short, one of the goblins got away, other goblin took a shotgun blast to the throat...and was held at gunpoint until PD arrived...one of the best 911 calls I ever heard!

    Maybe, now, the government will finally get around to putting a police officer in every home! :shocked:

    This happens EVERY day here in the US where someone with a gun protects themselves or others. Th media squashes the stories. Since the tragedy in Conn, hundreds have been saved all over the US who would have been raped/robbed/maimed/murdered without a gun as they were outnumbered or physically weaker than their attackers.

    Why do the libs want that?

    :thumbsup: to the Wife!!!

    Kudos to the husband for encouraging his wife to protect herself/kids and to survive.

    I like the reason why the sheriff won't arrest him now....doesn't want to pay for his medicals. Sad part is, the people will anyway! :sad:

    5 out of 6. That's a better ratio than the police usually do.

    Punctured lungs, punctured liver and stomach. The guy should have bought a lottery ticket too.

    It is a good thing that there was only one bad guy. She would have been S.O.L. if there had been 2 or 3 bad guys, as she had fired all the rounds in her 38 spl. revolver just trying to stop 1 bad guy, and after taking 5 hits he was able to drive away in his car. If he was able to drive away after taking 5 hits, what would he have been able to do to her and/or her kids if he had been so inclined.

    So much for needing more than a 10 round magazine, after all no one is ever attacked by more than 1 person and all it ever takes is 1 round to stop a bad guy.

    Yes, nice (all too rare) coverage of a good shoot. SOoooo - she'd had basic handgun training, nothing extensive AND she was able to keep her children safe and put 5 of 6 shots into a daytime home invasion BG. Now substitute the word SCHOOL for HOME. IMHO the vast majority of adults could handle guns well and responsibly with the want to do so and reasonable training.

    But I'm preaching to the choir aren't I?!

    I love a story with a happy ending!

    I would really like to know what ammo she used. I wonder if it was FMJ?

    Standard practice here in GA...if you're under arrest before or during your hospital stay then state has to pay your bills...if law enforcement waits for you to get released then picks you up then YOU are billed for your medical care...we just did that with the goblin in my post #7 above today...hospital called when he was about to be released and we met him outside with warrants, no medical bill for the taxpayers now!

    No doubt, they are still deadbeats, with no job wages or assets to attach, so the taxpayers (the productive members of this society) end up picking up the tab for the medical expenses anyway. It sounds like a clever way to proceed, but all that I see it doing is shifting the burden from the local government entity, to the State and/or the Federal Government. And if it is the Federal Taxpayer that ends up paying, because of the clever little trick played by the local governmental entity, thanks for nothing.

    I think there's a bigger problem here (with regards to the suspect not going down)... I read on another link yesterday (don't remember where) that the rounds went "through and through"... indicating ball ammo was used.

    .38spl are a fine self defense round, when loaded with proper ammo. 135gr +P Gold Dots are an excellent .38spl SD load.
