    St Louis man attempting to stop a car break in shoots himself

    I don't think this is how he thought it would work out when he grabbed his gun. The man had a ND and they still stole stuff from the car.

    I'll bet that someone is going to keep their finger off the trigger next time.

    Sounds like this guy forgot or didn't have any firearm safety classes. Got to keep the finger off the boom stick

    Adrenalin, excitement and perceived danger are a powerful combination, that may effect performance, especially for those not use to the combination.

    I'll bet the BG's laughed their butt's off about the guy shooting himself too, as they got away with the loot. Bad for the home owner, I guess he needs more practice going down the stairs with a gun in his hand.

    What a shame that the dirtbags did not get to take some lead with them...the homeowner kept it for himself.

    Perhaps the homeowner performed as he practiced..... In Indiana you can't use deadly force in response to a vehicle break-in unless the vehicle is occupied. (by people)
