I would think being shot with a 357 would kind of take the fight out of you.Oh well

There is something odd here. The perp only had one bullet? He shoots the homeowner in the face and then begs for his life? What was he armed with...a derringer, maybe? Weird.

.357 Magnum stopping power is spotty even with full-house loads. Ballistics experts like to argue why this should be. The old-timers swore by the .357 Keith bullet, and they may have had a point. The Keith is blunt and doesn't rely on expansion for frontal area.

Then again, IMHO a shotgun is always the better choice for home defence. When I'm old and feeble I'll have a 20-guage ready by the door. Until then a 12-guage will suffice.

‘Don’t kill me. Don’t kill me… I’ve got a daughter!’ I said, ‘f- you … pow, pow, pow, pow!’”

Sounds just like my father. RIP, Dad. You're very much missed.
