    I was told that the wife of a deployed NCO is being harassed and stalked

    I teach CCW classes and the wife is a Russian emigre with two small daughters. Her husband told her to get the shotgun out but he never instructed her to use it.
    I got ahold of her and told her to immediately call the police. (That's a rough thing for an immigrant from a former Soviet area to do)

    Using the information I received as a CID agent with the 297th MID, supplimented by the tremendous information I received from Mas Ayoob at LFI, I began to get a paper trail.
    1. I work with the County Attorney and immediately reported the series of incidents to her and then to a retired female Federal Judge who was the Air Force rep to the U S Court of Military Appeals.
    2. I asked her to call the police at every incident and not to worry that she would be crying 'wolf'. (Another incident happened before I could drive from my house to hers.)
    3. I did a defense analysis of her home and we had motion lights installed within an hour by an electrician who was able to contrbute much to the proper placement.
    4. I instructed her and her older daughter (14, is in ballet, and a blooming absolutely beautiful girl who happens to be my wife's 4th hour aid in middle school) to get to a safe room.
    5. We set all cell phones to speed dial 911, and the local police number.
    6. I instructed her how to load the shotgun, and keep it ready. In her case no round in the chamber but the slide pulled back ready to feed and then shoot.
    7. I rehearsed with her and the oldest daughter exactly what we learned at LFI to say if a person is in the house. We drilled getting into the safe room, hitting the cell numbers, and to rack the shotgun as loudly as she can.

    Today we are going to the range and I will actually teach the woman and her older daughter to shoot the shotgun.

    Good for you. Often times the families of those serving are overlooked, they are just as much heroes as those in uniform.

    Kudos...but I would go further:

    1) Notify his commander and 1st shirt
    2) Notify family support group
    3) Notify the school
    4) Find out details on the BG...and pass to police for a chat
    5) Provide some SD information while shopping, gas stations, her car etc.
    6) Being followed...to drive to a police station, fire house etc.

    That being said...stalking is one thing...but what is the harassment part (unless you mean one and the same)?

    Sounds like you might want to arrange for some volunteers who already have experience with firearms to spend some time over there...like as near to 24x7 as possible until this is worked out.

    I'd highly recommend the S&B low-recoil 00 loads, too. Plenty of punch to do the job, but not so much recoil as to be a problem, and they're usually cheaper per 10-pack than anything else is per 5-pack.

    She knows who this person is? Police should be notified.
    Phone records should be checked.
    Why is this person being stalked?
    Military should be notified.

    We've done all of that guys, military notified, JAG, CID, Post SGM. They are all very supportive. I'll post pics at the range, all military folks who jumped right in to help train. She got darn good with that 870 and feels golf, tango, golf.

    i appreciate you helping out a spouse of a deployed service member..i always worry about my wife when i deploy. luckily her family is about 7 miles away, she knows how to use a handgun and her female friends look out for her.

    what i really hate is the horn ball guys that basically make it a point to try and talk to married women when their husbands are deployed.....grrrrrr.

    Good for you. A little pro bono work where it's really needed.

    Good call on helping her out. If I found out something like that was happening to my girl, the day I get back I'd be missing a boot, and someone else would be in the ER.
