“ding himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver. The woman fired six shots, five of which hit Slater in the face and neck, but he managed to flee after the family ran to a neighbors house. Slater is expected to survive”
A larger caliber is in order here.
Underpowered ammo or tough burglar?
Damn! I woulda thought he’d at least bleed out from that.
Great shootin’ mom!
The “Obama’s Son” burgler was actually at little risk, because as is well known, Urban Ferals use of their cranial content is very minimal.
1) She's been spending time at the range.
2) He's a tough SOB.
Poor misunderstood soul!
This is a call to action! The liberals must show solidarity with the burglar, and protest outside this evil gun owner’s home! This travesty cannot go unanswered!
This poor man was just pursuing his chosen vocation, trying to eke out a meager living, and this woman committed an OSHA violation by resisting him.
Self-defense against Eric Holder's people needs to be a crime.
Kudos to the mom. Tight shot group. She’s ready to move up to a .45. Bigger holes.
Too bad he survived, Now we will have to feed him for the six months sentence a liberal judge will give him
There was a reason why our military went from the .38 to the .45 many many years ago and the birth of the 1911 pistol.
This is why she needed a semi-auto with a high capacity mag. The bastard survived 5 hits.
As bad as the Urinal/Constipation is, the actual article didn’t read anything like this. IN fact, the cops seemed rather tickled that she shot so well.
Slater is expected to survive
Can’t something be done about that?
the lady should upgrade to a larger calibre
Good Girl!!! Too bad she didn’t kill the bastard..I bet leftists out there are taking the side of the burglar, after all, it’s his “Right” to get free stuff, he’s been shafted by the man
This is an important lesson to everyone about “stopping power”. She was a very good shot to get five on him, hit him with all five, and in the right places. In a typical fight, you have to assume missing more than once, especially if they’re moving.
While arguments can go on all day about the best caliber, etc., these sorts of situations happen far too often, and many combat soldiers have tales of shooting the enemy and being shot themselves, and still having to “finish up” with knives. It happens to police a lot, especially if the perp is drunk or drug crazed, and feeling no pain.
Which is a great reason that if you need a handgun, you should pick up a knife as backup. Most of the time you won’t need a backup. But then, most of the time you won’t need to fire your gun, either.
Of note here though - consider the situation. If this guy was only there to "rob" the place, why did he keep looking until he found her and her kids - in the crawl space as I understand it? I think he intended something far, far worse. He wasn't looking for stuff, he was looking for people. Shame she didn't have a few more rounds, could've improved the world just that much more.
Five shots in the face and he survives? I’m guessing from now on he will be some kind of ugly!
