thanks a lot for telling your story trick, Feb 5th is my x wife's birthday so we were at a nice restaurant celebrating at the same time that you were almost killed, strange to think of it that way,but true.
you said the punk that shot you got 45yrs, what did the other two scumbags get?
stay safe my friend...:bier:
The 16 yr old got 40 yrs..
The 21 yr old, don't know what he got due to not having a hearing at that time, I plan to make some calls this week to find out what's going on.. The only thing that this 21 yr old has for him, is that I was told he was a LEO's son.
I'll double check on that.
Thanks again for letting me share my story.
OM44, these guys are ruthless and do not have any thoughts for the people who they kill whether it be woman, child or the BG which they are after. If that is not a form of terrorism then I stand corrected. Broad daylight killings, children, women, etc.. Does it sound familiar? Of course it does. Its the same tactics the insurgents are using.
Trickormate my prayers are with you. Be strong and don't forget He is always with you!
Stay ready and watch your 6!
Thank you for sharing your story Lee. I'm left without words or comment. One thing is for sure, I'm glad you now have your permit to carry legally, and protect yourself and your family. I can't begin to imagine what you've gone through with all of this, to be an active forum member, and relate your real life experience to the rest of us. May God bless you and your family.
This is my first time to share my story in a forum, I have shared my experience in a few churches but I can probably count those times with 1 hand.
I just felt that I needed to share it with you folks, It's been a ride that's for sure I'm just thankful that I'm able to carry now and I hope I never have to use it, but if I do I won't hesitate.
God Bless Y'all

As a Christian, people often ask whether or not I have ever witnessed a miracle. A question to which I uneqivocially answer yes. Your story sir, is an example of the miraculous power of God. We live in an evil world inhabitated by some evil people. Jesus told his disciples before he was crucified that he was leaving them and instructed them to buy a sword if they didn't have one. That advice holds true today and your testimony proves why. Thanks for sharing and God Bless You!
Thank you trickormate, I appreciate the courage it takes to not only go through an experience like that but to share with others for their well-being. I have learned another valuable lesson from you today so I am grateful. I'm glad you are still with us and the scumbags are doing time. God bless.
Hey folks, the next time some internet "expert" tries to tell you a .22 caliber handgun is a sufficient SD gun you just stop and think of the several people this punk would've killed if he'd been using something like a .38 spec. +P. If he'd used a .45 ACP or a .357 mag. they'd all be dead for sure.
I assure you, we are also happy that they didn't use a bigger caliber.
