Another great success story.
Should have finished them off - liberal courts will rake the homeowner over the coals.
Record ID 17583
Incident Date January 7, 2013 Time 9:52:00 PM Division Sand Creek Shift II
Title Robbery Location 2400 Block of E. St. Vrain St.
Summary On Monday, January 7, 2013 at approximately 9:52 PM the CSPD received the report of a home invasion with shots fired. Upon arrival, officers determined that three (3) male suspects had forced entry into a residence in the 2400 block of East St. Vrain St.
A male resident was present when the break in occurred and a struggle ensued between the victim and the suspects. The victim did obtain a firearm and shot two (2) of the suspects, both of whom are in their early twenties. Both of the injured suspects ran from the scene in an easterly direction for about one (1) block where they stopped due to their injuries. Medical personnel arrived and provided treatment to the individuals and both were transported to a local hospital.
One (1) of the suspects is considered to be in critical condition. The second male suspect is in stable condition.

Good shooting, Citizen. Civilization thanks you.
I’m 6’2”. Anyone else in my house is a good foot shorter than that, and the grandkids, well, maybe up to 4 feet for the oldest. Any of my shots will be aimed for the head(s) of the intruders, and at least three....that’s what I’ve been practicing at the range for twice, three times a week.
I’m not too bad with just the “point and shoot” stuff not taking time to line up the shots.
Get yourself a $10 red laser pen, and practice point-and-shoot, anywhere. I do it several times a day, and when I go to the range, people (and I) are amazed at how quick and accurate I’ve become. The 3-point Weaver Stance isn’t necessary at 8-20ft. (Also, gives the cats some fun.) LOL.
It would seem the adrenaline and bleed-out zone lasts about one block, or about 300’. About the same as a deer.........
I usually lay in bed and aim the weapon quickly toward the door. Holding the final position, I move my head/eyes to see where it lined up. Works fine....I usually get multiple head shots at the range for 20 feet.
Look at your picture.....superimpose the head inside that trapezoid...what do you see? Same size.
In a head shot, even if you miss the brain, there is a buttload of bleeding. Headcuts bleed - alot. If you catch the throat, there’s the carotid, and there is the larynx...you get hit there, it causes some consternation.
If one of the three/four shots (quickly) catches the brain, it’s over and done.
Yeah, I like the head shots, too. It just seems natural that you would shoot at the head/mouth/neck area.
It’s the only way to “be sure” with a zombie, you know....
All good head shots.....any one is a killer.
Point and shoot up to 25ft.
Single hand aimed, stance with body perpendicular to target, out to 50ft.
Weaver stance 50ft and longer.
Point and shoot based off of quick draw, consistent 8" group can be done with practice.
My body perpendicular to target presents less a target to bad guy than weaver.
Weaver stance becomes necessary, for me, at 50ft and longer.
Practice at least 2 times a month now, just making sure I'm not picking up any bad habits.
This is how I practice, works for me.
There is no place inside my home with more than a 20 ft max clear range....all I’m wanting to do is to put 2-3 out of 4 shots in a perp’s head inside my home.
I’d rather a head shot because it’s a zombie killer and I don’t want a gut shot zombie running all over my house bleeding everywhere. I can at least grab the head and put a shower curtain under it.
Interesting you should say that. I use Winchester Silvertip ammo in case of werewolves.
I guess they're good against zombies, too.
...Not sure about vampires. Maybe I need to see if anybody makes Crucifixtip ammo.
I much prefer the terms "deceased" and "mortally wounded".
Maybe I need to see if anybody makes Crucifixtip ammo.
I cut a cross in all of my CJH ammo. Takes a few minutes, two cuts with my Buck knife, and BAM! Vampire certified ammo.
For vampires you need the roaring twenties dum dums.
