She kept her finger off the trigger
The other day my girlfriend told me that she was awakened about 0330hrs to the sound of someone jiggling her front door knob. She lives in a remote cabin by the lake and it's not that close to the road. Not to mention the avg response time for LEO to this area is 30+ min. Well she gets up, grabs her Walther and yells toward the door that she she has a weapon and knows how to use it. She could see, through the window, 2 teen boys turn and run. She told me "I kept hearing you say keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire, and I did." (this is something that we've been working on for a while) Maybe I got through to her.
