A domestic dispute led to a shooting in Tulsa on Tuesday morning. Now, Tulsa police are investigating whether a woman shot her ex-boyfriend in self-defense.
Officers were called to the scene near 1500 East 51st Place North around 8 a.m. Police say the woman said her ex-boyfriend had come by Monday night, slashed her tires, and then beat her.
Police say when he came back today, she shot him four times with a .22-caliber handgun.
The man drove himself to the hospital and is expected to recover. Police say the woman was also taken to the hospital for her injuries.
Memo: get rid of the .22 and buy a .45
Get a bigger gun.
The biggest handgun that I own is a Desert Eagle .50 AE. Unfortunately, the darn thing is way too big to lug around. It is fun to own and shoot, even if it was derisively referred to in a review as "only useful as a movie prop".
If he comes back aim next time.
That revolver was designed for snakes and varmits. Unless the .45 Colt cartridges are used, it’s pretty much useless as a self defense weapon.
