    Retired Green Beret Shoots Intruder, Gets Court Martial

    When the intruder threatened him with a knife, Taylor warned him, then brought his .22 caliber pistol to bear and shot him right between the eyes.
    “Charges were brought against him under the premise that he should have saved the county and taxpayers the expense of a trial,” said Chapter XXXIII President Bill Long of Asheville. “He could have used a .45 or .38. The .22 just wasn’t big enough to get the job done.”

    Moderator Note, no it wasn't a "real" court martial...

    Carry on.

    I have no idea, after reading the entire article, if it's serious, tongue-in-cheek, an April's Fools joke, or what. In any event, in the state of NC (it happened in Transylvania Co.) he would be commended by any LEA for his actions, regardless of age or size of his ammo.

    Thanks, JD! I was hoping to troll a little more before everyone realized that it wasn't a real court martial, but was a fun "court martial" drummed up by Chapter XXXIII of the Special Forces Association. Carry on.

    Just suspend his "Man-Card" for 30 days; and require him to purchase a weapon of "sufficient caliber".

    All the shootings I have ran a .22 can be a nasty one. If the ammo is new...it can punch through the skull and then bounce around in the skull making the brain a mass the consistency of Cold Slaw. If it doesn't kill them...they have the mental ability of a turnip. I have ran a few like that, but I have ran a few that the .22 ammo was old and weak and just bounced off the skull. A bullet to the head is never good....but you have a better chance of some brain function left if the bullet goes straight through (no matter what the caliber) rather than bouncing around shredding the old gray matter.
