    Outgunned!

    By Robert A. and John T. Waters. Not a bad read. It's a compilation of historical incidents where civilians have fought off outlaws. My favorite was the one about Northfield, Minnesota. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 7.

    From Amazon.com...

    Outgunned! True Stories of Citizens Who Stood Up to Outlaws-and Won describes a dozen such cases. There's Jesse James, whose gang was decimated by armed citizens while the James-Younger Gang was attempting to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota. There's Tom Horn, assassin for the Wyoming cattle barons, who was shot by citizens during an ill-fated jailbreak. And there's George Birdwell, "Pretty Boy" Floyd's chief lieutenant; he and his partners were gunned down by outraged townspeople as they attempted to hold up a bank in the all-black town of Boley, Oklahoma. There's the notorious Dalton gang that entered Coffeyville, Kansas, one cold fall morning in 1892 and attempted to rob two banks at the same time; four of the outlaws were killed by armed citizens. Then therešs Anthony Chebatoris, a Prohibition-era socialist who, after murdering an innocent bystander during an attempted bank robbery in Midland, Michigan, was shot by a dentist who kept a hunting rifle in his office.

    How's that?

    Robert Waters has written several books about citizens that have used firearms to defend themselves and their families. He was kind enough to send me an autographed copy of one several years ago.
