Posting this as a reminder why everybody should stay armed at ALL TIMES with, if possible, something with substantial firepower.
My son in law's brother lives in rural Tenn. He never goes home for lunch but yesterday he did. His wife works so she's never home during the daytime. He pulls into his driveway to find a guy sitting in a car in his driveway with another guy exiting his front door carrying all his guns and the family's jewelry. He tries to stop them, not smart cause he's unarmed. Has one shot fired at him but it's a miss. Of course they get away.
I didn't talk to him and was informed second hand but I wonder if he'll be getting a handgun permit and keeping something on his hip from now on. Chime in but I like his chances if he's wearing something with at least 12 rounds of 9mm or larger caliber.

I agree that its not smart for him to try to stop the burglar without a weapon. I wonder how he tried to stop them. Did he block their vehicle with his vehicle? I'm surprised that the BG'S only fired one shot though.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
First get a safe, second if they would have fired upon me after i politly asked them to put down my stuff. My H&K would have not been so nice 27 times scratch that 39 times. would not take that many I hope but I keep I more mag in my truck.
Did they shoot at him with one of his or did they bring their own?
That would suck.. get shot with your gun!

That really sucks... sorry to hear about it.
Yup, if you're not carrying ALL the time, you probably won't have it when you need it!

My understanding is the guy comming out the door shot at him with one of his own handguns. He lost both handguns and long guns. It's really sick. If I'd been there there would most likely have been some holes in the BG's.
If someone breaks into my house they can have a fun time taking my guns. They are locked in the safe (when I'm not home), chained together, and bolted to the ground. All my valuables. I.e. Passports, vehicle titles, receipts for expensive items and jewelry are in a fireproof safe locked in a secure location bolted in place. I have enough insurance to replace things if stolen. If I were to pull up on someone like in this situation walking out with my flat screen TV I'd first block them in the driveway, then possibly shoot out their tires to really make sure they aren't leaving, at least not by vehicle, and then hold them at bay until LEO's arrive. If they choose to engage me at this point then I would defend myself accordingly.
Glad he's okay, having been shot at while attempting to stop multiple BG's while not armed. Lucky to have not been whacked.
Did he at least get a license number?
A real shame about the guns.....but at least he's ok.
That sucks. I at least always have one in the car! If only I could carry at work...i'd have one on my hip more often!
Wow, that really sucks. This is exactly why I want a real safe!!

I'm not pro gun, I'm pro rights. What are you?
Hope he has good insurance...the lost peace of mind sucks. Do you know what part of rural TN this occured?
With digital cameras being as cheap as they are, it wouldn't hurt to have one of them with you at all times, especially in this case - just another tool in the tool bag. Would have come in real handy for this fellow - take a pix of the BG & their vehicles. Leaves out having to remember everything. Hope he decides to CCW now.

Location was McKenzie in northwestern Tenn. About 20 mi south of Paris or about 40 miles north of Jackson. I've never lived there but it is as nice a part of america as you could ever imagine. Unfortunately crime almost as common in small towns as in urban areas nowadays
i'd be unable to do anything is i saw someone trying to steal my firearms. i'd be laughing too hard or running in fear of anyone that can lift that safe i have. trust me its fricken heavy and i doubt that god could even bring down someone that can lift that thing.

Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.
