Posted on 01/10/2013 4:28:16 PM PST by Ben Mugged
Police have released audio from a 911 call made during a home invasion in Georgia, in which a concerned husband tells his wife to shoot a lawless intruder. The mom was home alone with her twin 9-year-old children when the man broke into their home with a crowbar.
The mother, later identified as Melinda Herman, shot the man five times with a .38 caliber revolver after he cornered them in an attic crawlspace,

Glad the lady had the wherewithall and training with her .38 and had her husband on the phone to coach her. Too bad the perp survived as now the taxpayers of Georgia will undoubtedly have to cover his medical costs and house and feed his sorry azz.
Democrats want her to die !!!
“....Wife to Shoot Home Invader in Chilling 911 Audio”
What’s so chilling about it?
Loving husband instructing wife to shoot as long as opponent remains standing.
Isn’t love never having to say you’re sorry?
“...She is the worlds best argument for weapons that can fire a lot more than six shots. What if there had been two intruders?”
Shoulda used the full auto Glock with 100 round mag!
Think that might be enough???
Yep. Got in his car and made it to a driveway in
If she remained in the home , same effort could
have been used to kill the mother & children with crowbar.
Unfortunately he will live. A 9mm clip would have had more than enough rounds to end his
I wouldn’t exactly call it a happy ending, but could have been worse.
Sorry, but somebody had to say it...
Glock 17 (FPS Russia testing it)
So... the moral of this story for me is to keep my .9mm Beretta handy by the side of the bed and use the .38 revolver as a backup.
More punch, more rounds.
So much for texting on train . Lol.
Tires , wheels , same thing. Lol
WHICH 9mm “clip” ?
Some little 9s have a slim single-stack of 6 or 7 rounds.And far better to have one of those than nothing.
Don’t you know ONLY the police need double-stack 19 round magazines ?
Sounds like the perp was on just enough drugs to shrug off the wounds yet just enough brains to seek medical help .He COULD have expended his enegy beating the woman and children to death before then collapsing.NOT a happy ending.
If she had shot the perp in just the correct spot in the face then a bullet would have traveled to the brain and ended it.But chances of missing the head are much greater than missing the body.And I posit that nice people are reluctant to shoot,stab, or bash someone in the face., due to cultural conditioning.
She actually did pretty well-both lungs,and the liver.Wrong ammo in the gun,otherwise he’d have been dead on the spot.What she needed was a .357 with the Federal 125 grain load.
I like 00 buckshot from my 870 tactical. Of course, you will have less mess to cleanup. ;>)
I’m relieved that she called her husband. 911 would have instructed her to give the gun to the perp.
The guy did make it to the hospital
This incident occurred because she was shooting .38 cal. ball rounds.
She should have been using .38 cal hydra-shock +p’s
After discharging the weapon in a small space , she couldn’t hear her husband on the phone : all the more reason for using a ‘silencer’ in a closed area .
Thank goodness her husband brought her to the range to train her on the firearm ~ let that be a lesson to us all .
you’re ok if I put a clip in my broomhandle Mauser I assume.
I just looked at the first video....awesome!
FPS Russia has the coolest toys.
Gator113 ~:” I like 00 buckshot from my 870 tactical. Of course, you will have less mess to cleanup. ;>)”
My 870 (non-tactical) has : #6 bird (first round) , #00 (second round), and sabots (#3,4,5 rounds).
If I have to go to #3 -5 , I don’t care about clean up !!
LOL, I thought the same thing. I like how calm and reassuring her husband was.
Seems like I heard she had just begun learning how to shoot, so that lady did just FINE!
911 was still in the process of dispatching when she had to defend herself. No way she or her children would have been safe until the police actually got there and made it to her location.
