Good for them!
More stories like this and the BG's might think twice about the dangers of being a BG.

Kudos to the GG's for turning the tables. Shows what having a weapon and refusing to be a victim can accomplish. (A bit different from the usual pucker-and-pray type stories we get fed daily, in the news.)
After watching the video... I'm not impressed with her handling of the gun!
And it was a Taurus...and it didn't fail!
(I have a Taurus in my EDC rotation, so that's good to know!)
Can anyone identify the BG's gun?

Glad it worked out for her. I agree with other posters, her gun handling was sub par as was the holster. It looked like she needed 2 hands to get the gun out of the holster. Good news is, however, she and her hubby got to go home to the kiddos.
