    Elderly couple did not scare off the robber...

    ....with a shovel or anything else...

    CTPost story

    Held at gunpoint... Several BGs. Home invasion.

    Guantes said it first, more of these "multiple invader home invasions" seem to be going on... It's not so far-fetched for folks to answer the door with a gun and it doesn't have to be after midnight...
    It could be worse.

    You have to be ready, especially at late hours. Shotgun would have worked well in this instance.

    My guess is that he is is a retired businessman, possibly jeweler or such and that information was known to the robbers.

    This story is yet another perfect case in point for why I carry a high capacity semi-auto with one in the chamber, even in my own home. Before anyone chimes in, no, I have never had multiple armed intruders force their way into my home. I've never had a venereal disease, either, but I still advocate the use of condoms whenever indulging in a particular adult recreation.
