    Video Interview: Man defends child and pregnant wife against intruder

    Good interview, glad the man was calm and collected and got the bad guy. Not sure if the BG is dead.

    An interview with someone who had to shoot a BG in self-defense that didn't make the good guy out to be a gun nut?

    Wow.

    No word if BG is dead.

    One can hope.

    Good job, Brian.

    Good Grief. Thank goodness the intruder wasn't also armed because the victim had his weapon on safe.

    Apparently the intruder did not take this guy seriously. He pulled the trigger and nothing happened. Talk about stupid criminals. At this point the intruder should have realized that this guy was serious and should have either fled or rushed the guy.

    Another reason I own a Glock. Under stress, I just don't want to have to remember all that safety stuff. Yes, yes, I know you practice and muscle memory takes over, but this guy is lucky he got a second chance.

    I can see several things that say this guy is lucky he's talking and not dead.#1 He has a gun that he is not familiar enough with as to try to fire without taking the safety off,they have had people die because they pulled a gun and because they tried to shoot the gun on safe the BG killed them.You need to practice with your weapon enough to where employing it becomes second nature.#2 The guy just walked in his house,why didn't he lock the door behind him when he came in the house if he's been watching this guy acting weird and the guys bicycle is on his porch.I keep my doors locked if somebody has to kick my door open it's gonna make enough noise and slow them down just enough for me to draw and fire if I need to.

    Of course, I am glad that a good guy did eventually use his weapon to his benefit when the duty called. Way to go fella. However, I'd hope he'd seek out tactical training with his weapon after initially experiencing a lack of mental preparedness in the moment of need.

    Well a couple of big mistakes made by the home owner but no one can say he didn't give the BG every opportunity to leave. Another one bites the dust.......

    That is an item of ones own individual training, not the firearms manual of arms.
    Also this guy states a BG who he had observed prior with his pregnant wife and child in his home "just walked into" his house.
    He knew there was a person outside looking around in his neighbors home and also moving around in his backyard yet he did not think to lock his front door (!).

    His mistake, again, for 1) not having his doors locked and 2) not thinking to go and lock his doors upon having suspicion of a person outside his walls was not acting right.

    Dude had training issues across the board.

    A very justified shoot. He tried very hard to avoid having to shoot the BG.

    Obviously, he needs more training, he needs to remember to lock the doors, and he should give serious thought to training for his wife. A dog or two would have probably kept the bad guy out.

    However, he and his family are safe, and the bad guy isn't. Job well done.

    I sure hope the DA and grand jury had already dismissed any case against him.

    I just want to point out, no matter how innocent you think you are you should never give an interview after a shooting until you are for sure clear of any charges.

    A DA is an elected official. It just takes a little pressure from the right people to push them enough to press charges against you.

    Everything you say CAN and WILL be used against you!

    We have already talked about the things he did wrong that could be used against him.

    His lawyer should have been the only person he told this story to.
