    Good for them!

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

    More BG's might pump up the volume, in some cases, though certainly more BG's might be thwarted. Either way, vastly elevating the risk of survival for BG's during commission of their crimes via hardening the targets will almost certainly result in a net reduction in the levels of successful violent crimes. Bending over backwards to allow them free reign hasn't worked well. It's about bloody time we change the rules of the game. And the faster we can erase them all from our midst, the better for all of us ... no matter what it takes. It's just going to take far more than ~1-2% of people carrying on any given day, to accomplish it.

    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?

    I liked this part:

    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.
