    As Michael Corleone said, "It's not personal, Sonny, it's strictly business." That's the mindset I would maintain if I had to shoot an intruder.

    ^^^^^^^FROM ARTICLE^^^^^^^^^^^^^



    While this does sound a bit fishy, the residents of the house, had 0 priors or any rap sheets.




    Why don't they start showing the pictures of the deceased with the chalk outline, right where they dropped, in all its bloody glory????

    Maybe these knuckledraggers will stop commiting suicide this way.
    They just arrested the City Of Pharr Mayor's Son at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Check point with 141 pounds of pot in the trunk of his mercedes.His dads comment was Ididn't know he was doing that,and I don't want to know.

    Yea, I don't like the way the article worded it either.

    What's the problem with male's living together to cut living expenses, and spending their hard earned cash on cars?

    Their life, their choice. For the last couple of years, I was in that situation. I lived in a house of all males with mixed ages. All of us had jobs, clean criminal records, and guns/CPL's.

    We didn't have a "Family Atmosphere", but we all paid taxes, followed the law, went to work, ect.

    I hope that news article was not trying to make something out of nothing...

    And my wife as well because I carry at home. I'm starting to share these news stories with her.

    Good idea. I usually don't carry at home, but rest it on a table nearby. Move it room to room as a wander my apartment. I should really holster it.

    I am glad she doesn't argue about it. It is only a lack of understanding. She knows I find it important, so she supports it. I guess I should be grateful for that. She disagrees, but chooses to be agreeable. She could easily try to make me stop or threaten some sort of sanction.

    Ever since I asked her if I should buy a 1911 and she said yes I have felt that I have picked a winner.

    I have been wearing BDU cargo type pants I buy at the Army Navy Store for the last few years for two reasons.
    One, they are comfortable and even come in shorts.
    Two, the thigh pocket carries my Colt Government Pocketlite really really well. You can't tell I'm armed unless you touch my leg.
    These pants have small pockets inside the thigh pocket whick make great soft holsters.

    I never go anywhere, even here at the house without that little alloy pistol with me.

    I have a 40 and 45 automatic nearby at all times, but seldom on me.
    And they go in the car with me, but my Colt is my primary carry because it's easier to have on me all day every day.

    I've been robbed at gunpoint before and that feeling of helplessness never goes away.
    But being prepared helps deal with it.

    Good for these Homeowners. 2 more down and thousands to go.
    What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?

    My favorite part of this story is how the newspaper got the "victim" title correct for once. The guy that owned the house and did the shooting was the victim.

    The police said no drugs were found in the home...which is odd, because it implies that the police looked for them. Should I expect the police to search my home if someone breaks into it? If I shoot an armed (or unarmed, makes no difference) intruder, is that probable cause to now search my home for whatever they can find? Seriously?
