    Goodness. Gang related? Did they know him? They were lousy shots thank God. They hit him in the leg. The story doesn't say whether or not he hit any of them. I'm glad no innocent neighbors were hit by stray rounds. Could have been real ugly.

    From story::

    Police later learned that the homeowner came home to his discover that his house was being burglarized. He noticed this while he was swapping his trash and recycling bins. The man then went back to his car to get his gun. Police say that's when he was confronted by the two men and bullets started flying.

    ^^^^^^^^^Lesson learned^^^^^^^^
    Homeowner dd not have his pistol ON HIM.

    This May. or May Not have altered the outcome of events but I'd be willing to bet he would have stood a better chance.

    Too bad he didn't take out the trash.

    Lucky he made it back to his car. Your SD weapon is no good if you don't have it when you need it. Wait a minute, I'll be right back!

    Note to self...
    It's SO MUCH easier to identify dirtbag suspects with .45 holes in them.

    Ironically, I carry my pistol when taking trash out to our can in the alley. I live in a "good" neighbourhood, but some of the creepy crawlers walking through our alley is reason enough. If I am going to be a victim, I want to be an armed one.

    I know that it could just be a matter of time when the statistics catch up, so I'm prepared for something just like this.

    This guy was lucky the thugs didn't just kill him, take what they wanted and disappeared.

    I can pretty much guarantee if I am ever involved in a shooting,the sentence"he ran/left/had to go get his gun will not be anywhere in the report.It will read sumpin like in a blaze of superhuman speed he produced a 45 caliber firearm well known for taking out enemy combatants in over 4 well known wars much to the surprise of the home invaders.
    Police Identified all of the criminals by identification found on their lifeless bullet riddled bodies.Crime Scene investigators were overheard remarking on the tight pattern the gunshots were located in and commented on the shooting prowess of Dukalmighty
