Epic One Shot stop

A 74-year old woman with a .22 pistol vs a 41-year old home invader. The results are one shot, one hit to the head, fight over. Tax payers saved millions of dollars in prosecution and incarceration costs. https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article222377725.html She even survived a heart att...

Re: Against a knife

I don't think anyone would dispute he had the legal grounds to shoot the guy, but that doesn't mean doing so is required. To his credit, the CCW guy kept good distance and it didn't look like there was any time the guy could have charged without being shot before he got into stabbing range. That bei...

Against a knife

Interesting video here of a CCW holder with a drawn gun on a knife-wielding maniac who just stabbed a woman (who died later) and is begging the guy with the gun to shoot him. The CCW holder just keeps backing up. Not sure that's the best thing to do, but at least he keeps good distance so the guy ca...

Stopping power matters

A wild shootout in Pharmacy between a 24-year old robber and a 72-year old former mayor resulted in the robbery being foiled. Yet the results were less then satisfying. Despite being shot multiple times, the robber was still able to take the Pharmacy owner's gun and briefly flee the scene before col...

Re: McDonald's shootout in Birmingham

It just goes to show the importance in always being prepared for a gunfight, even in unlikely places. Like a synagogue? Yep, my thoughts as well. I was really surprised to find out that any house of faith for any religious denomination in a major city like Pittsburgh doesn't have any type of armed ...

McDonald's shootout in Birmingham

This could have been another mass shooting. Instead it will just be a small story of defensive gun use that will get minimal media coverage since no one died other then the potential killer. http://time.com/5438361/customer-shooting-alabama-mcdonalds/ I am somewhat interested in learning what the ki...

Crazed violent customer stopped in kitchen by armed waitress

Textbook defensive gun use here. The only casualty in this case was the armed woman's job. The story says she "quit", but I think it's likely she only quit because the restaurant she worked in bans guns and they were going to fire her. http://www.wisn.com/article/man-goes-behind-counter-pu...

At the same time, this certainly makes the case for getting a decent holster with some proper retention.

Real life version of "To catch a predator"

A 25-year old man flew all the way around the world to try to see a 14-year old girl he met online. Apparently he didn't realize breaking into a house in America is a little more dangerous then it is in his home country of New Zealand.

They usually take a while to arrive though so maybe get yourself a king tuk to hold you over till it gets there.

Re: Killers inspire killers

I'm really not in favor of blaming video games. Millions of people play them without adverse effect. But it's unrealistic to think that they're not a part of an overall culture that glorifies violence, and it's clear that the culture a person lives in can influence them. The serotonin re-uptake inh...
