Posted on 12/06/2011 4:24:29 PM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo
Its the last thing two burglary suspects expected to hear when they broke into a Coon Rapids home. From within the house came the unmistakable sound of a pump shotgun. At the other end of that gun was a 22-year-old woman who is nine weeks pregnant.
The young woman asked not to be identified because the two suspects are still at large. However, she says when the men ignored her barking pit bull and black lab, and broke through a kitchen door, she had no other choice but to chamber a round into the 12-gauge shotgun.
Theres perhaps no other sound that commands as much respect and fear. The young woman at the business end of that gun was home alone and prepared to protect herself.

I’ve always told my wife that if I’m ever not around and she’s not comfortable whipping out one of the hand guns then she should grab the 870 and give it a pump.
i don’t suggest she should have shot them, but that would make it harder for them come back or be on the loose still........
Yep. And the shotgun would be more effective if kept with a shell in the chamber and the safety on. Way I see it, muzzle flash is appropriate warning for a burglar.
Idiots got what they deserved!
I had someone break into my attached garage once in Blaine and my Shepard and Malamute didn't like it and woke me up.....
It saved me the hassle of cleaning up human remains. They were smart enough to move on.
Theres perhaps no other sound that commands as much respect and fear.
.....and 870 being racked.. brings chills just thinking about it. I think I’ll go and get mine and rack it a few times!
I’ll bet they peed themselves.
Maybe they couldnt see the dogs or they just dont know a Pit bull to look at it. But I would not want to break in to a house being guarded by a pit bull. May be it was not the shot gun that made them turn around. Maybe they saw the pit bull and turned tail.
And for those who would like a handy addition to your playlist:
A pregnant woman can dang near kill you just by glaring at you. Arm her and you have probably the most lethal weapon on the planet.

Momma don’t play.
I have a Mossberg Maverick 88 12 gauge with an 18 1/2” barrel next to my bed. I keep it loaded with five 00 shells in the magazine but none in the chamber. That’s because I want the intruder to hear that pump without me wasting a shell.
It’s also safer for me.
Eric Holder is considering filing a multitude of federal gun charges against the woman and forcing her to have an abortion.
“With a single pump of her 12-gauge shotgun, the would-be burglars bolted out the door and through the backyard leaving nothing but their dignity and twin trails of urine behind them.”
I keep my pump 12 gauge gun loaded.
All the wife has to do is press the go button from right to left before placing the finger on the trigger.
00 buck with 5 backup rounds ready to go!
I don’t want her to have to worry about racking the slide in a stressful moment.
It looks good in the movies, but can add confusion.
Keep the SHTF guns LOADED!
WCCO is the most left-wing broadcast outlet in this town. Believe me, if they thought for a second that the dogs and not the gauge spooked the baddies, they would have made this into a half hour info-mercial declaring that guns don’t solve anything.
Yes, “knocked up” and “pissed/bitchy” is a bad combo.
Rush’s Amazon battalion idea comes to mind.
The only problem is the second perp should be the only one to hear it.....
The one downside to this is if they are armed you may give your position away and they get a couple shots off toward you.
Should be easy to find the perps....
Just follow the brown trail....
She’s only 22, alone and pregnant. All in all....I think she done good!
So do I. The only way she cold have done better was two dead burglars. Not only helping herself but her community at the same time.
An 870 is a good cure for home invasion.
On a side note...I believe that this was a local job. Somebody knew that she was 22, alone and pregnant and figured that they could bull-rush the two dogs.
Had she not pulled the gauge, it would have been interesting to see if the pooches would have regrouped after the initial crash through the door and chewed some ass....
My tactical guns have no safety, when in panic mode, you don’t want a safety mode. Oh, I forgot my AR has a safe mode. Hand guns have passive safety only.
Jason Lewis refers to them as WDFL for a reason. I am so happy to be out of Minnesota.
Gee, what a classy remark....
As much as I like Jason, he was late to the game on WDFL.
He was pointed to the liberalism of WCCO by folks like you and me.
More serious than a pregnant woman is a woman who has just given birth and who is protecting her newborn. Hormones. Deadly.
Yes, a shotgun racking is something you dont forget if youve ever heard one. So, it frightened these two suspects off right away, they took off running
MinnesOtans are basically Canadians with guns.
“Eric Holder is considering filing a multitude of federal gun charges against the woman and forcing her to have an abortion.”
Bring the ba$tard on...let him hear the rack...and see the flash...
Agreed. Also a possible FTF malf. at the worst possible time.
I’ve heard that said before, but IMO, going for a weapon of any kind at 3am is likely to give your position away.
In my case, the intruder still wouldn’t know my specific position, and that is an important fact in my bedroom. Plus, there is a 90 degree turn in the hallway, so as soon as they poke their head around that corner, I have the advantage.
There is more to my plan that I won’t reveal in public, but I’ve rehearsed it thousands of times in my head so it will be automatic if an intruder ever breaks in.
When he isn't performing his PR duties for Hamas, maybe he does.
i agree. if you are in my house by breaking and entering, i assume you are there to do harm!
They must have REALLY wanted something inside to see the 2 dogs (one being a pitbull) and yet STILL want to come in.
Thank goodness she had the gauge.
