    So the good samaritan neighbor, grabs his 30.06, and heads to the neighbors house after a text message.

    If he would have called the cops and been a good witness instead the cops may have arrived just in time to clean up the mess from a murder suicide...however if I was her I would have also gotten the hell out of that house instead of waiting for him to come back.

    Suicide is homicide turned inward.
    It's very easy to project that homicide outward, in fact it's easier to turn it outward, as survival is one of our most basic acts. This is a version of "Suicide by Cop". Instead of the police it was done by an armed neighbor. That's reason alone to not let the neighbors know you carry, or have firearms.

    She may not have known he had arms, but since they had been neighbors for 20 years, she would have known he was a reservist, probably went to school with him, knew he hunted, whatever... a neighbor.

    I agree, in most settings nowadays it would be best not to let folks know you have weapons, or are prepared for armageddon, or ...

    But, in some places, in some cases, neighbors is neighbors... And,just like in the old days... You can count on your neighbors. I am blessed to live in such an area.

    +1 for marksmanship and saving an innocent life. Funny how the young woman apparently felt she could count on the neighbor more than the police.

    He was probably aiming at his head but the 30.06 shoots a little to the right.
