Good guys lived, bad guys 1 dead 1 fleeing. I think it turned out good! Shotgun vs. handgun = shotgun wins.

Well, the last shooting I heard about in that area turned out to be in defense of a marijuana growing operation.
However, this sounds like a clean shoot off the bat and that the thieves were after a jewelry safe.
Sounds like the odds were heavily stacked against the victims here and they're very fortunate to have this work out in their favor. And I don't imagine the fleeing suspect will get far.
I may need to rethink getting a home shotgun.
Mmmmm...the dead guy in the driveway was wearing a mask and had a gun. Was this REALLY a crime...where's Detective Fife when you need him?

Latest update: It appears the deceased was shot by his partner. Isn't it nice when the criminals eliminate each other so we don't have to?
I think this is where it is going to get very interesting.Troyer says the crime does not appear to be random. Investigators found a lot of drugs in the home and a secret compartment.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Sorry guys, thought that was gonna be home defense - not "stash" defense.
-Still need to get that shotgun tho :)

S&W 642 in bathrobe pocket just buys me time to get to the Mossberg 500A in bed rack.

Looks like firing over your shoulder, gangsta style, while fleeing is not a real accurate way to help your buddy escape.
Nice when the bad guys take each other out for us. Think of the savings to taxpayers.
And the one who escaped, while firing his weapon over his shoulder, gets and automatic Capitol Punishment Murder Charge in the process.
A win win.
But wait! If I'm to believe Hollywood, a pistol beats a shotgun and machine guns everytime.
Guess that's so in this case.
Make sure your Home Defense Shotgun has some significant shells in it.
Other wise bird shot is nothing more than a limp weapon.
I keep mine on the side of my bed frame just like the one in the picture.
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?
