    Hopefully he's contemplating the buckshot lodged in his skull right now.

    What was he shooting? A 410 with birdshot? I just can't imagine a guy running after getting a load of 12ga OO to the face.

    I was thinking the same thing,

    had it been 12ga OO there would be no head much less face. (I am assuming)

    A bad day for a burglar. Not an easy lifestyle to be in.

    He feared for his life and stood his ground according to the article.

    I hope the victim gets counseling, a good carpenter to fix the damages to his house, and some good advice on why a 935 Mossberg is a better home protection device.

    I don't know about the Mossberg you mentioned, but I do know that a Winchester Defender (18-inch-barrel, 12-guage shotgun ) I formerly owned, did not develop adequate muzzle velocity with ordinary shotshells. I was told that the police use shells having faster burning powder when They want serious results. AmazenGlock

    Shot placement is key. Bigger shot is important too.

    He done good.

    This was the Sea-Tac area. I think it's OK for liberals.

    Sounds like some dirtbag from Hilltop wandered too far west.

    The female talking head ended the story with this, "the DA will determine if the home owner will face charges". :upeyes::dunno:

    Nobody said what gauge or loading this intruder got hit with, but it's time to move up to something that actually works. If I'm going to shoot the bad guy in the face with a 12 gauge, I don't want them to even find his face or have to search for him in an alley, and worse yet, have him survive so he can sue me. Are you kidding me!
