    What everyone else said - well written - great story and yes, the outcome was fortunately as it should have been.

    Just shows anti-gun, "police will protect you" types are wrong.
    Bad things do happen to good people and those good people must be able and willing to act.

    First post. Hi, everyone!

    Yeah, great story all right. Did she ever question her, 'other behavior' that night? Single woman, out alone, a little drunk, and in condition white? Gun's in purse where it doesn't belong. Purse is in car which makes things even worse.

    Why does every woman I know keep her gun in her purse, anyway? I asked my wife this question, once; know what she said? 'It's uncomfortable, and it makes me look fat!'

    Who else would any self-respecting rapist choose! Me thinks she should have been expecting to be attacked! I'd be interested to know at what point during the evening the rapist began tracking her. Did she recall him from earlier that day? Where was he, and how far away, when he began the attack? Sounds like he caught her, 'cold' doesn't it!

    Apparently Annie does not know the answers to any of these questions, herself. This time around she's a lucky girl that rapist imagined himself to be in control and put his guard down.

    Bet he was surprised as all Hell when those first shots went off!

    I get it. Shoot until he's no longer a threat. I think emptying a gun is a natural defensive reaction.

    well it's more like I don't want my wife to be more preoccupied about how many times to shoot, just shoot.

    It's always to hear a story about one of the good guys coming out on top in an encounter with the bad guys.

    Thanks for posting that!
