    Auto or revolver aside, luckily she didn't have to remove a lock and assemble (auto)/load (revolver) the weapon.

    Glad she had the tools to protect herself and the will to fight.

    She had the will to fight. Good on her.

    She had a tool but was it the proper tool? She shot 9 times.

    She had a little hammer that hit the nail 9 times to drive it home.
    She should have used a bigger hammer and hit it a couple of times.



    Having the will to fight and using the wrong tools to do it can get you killed.

    I would never argue with bigger is better when it comes to firearms and self defense. But in her situation where death was a probability either way, I would be grateful for what I have as it's better then nothing.
