    Homeowner versus burglar brothers

    Glad It turned out well for the homeowner. It pays to have a weapon at home.

    Well, it looks like Ashanti and Jamar tried to cash in early on a 'retirement package'...too bad they will live again to continue their dirtbag ways.
    Congrats to this home owner...nice work, but get some more range time.

    Reading this story tells me I need more range too and an advanced tactics class. Be prepared!

    Time for the range I got.....shortage of ammo is the problem...

    Chalk up another one for the good guys.

    Hope they keep them locked up for a very long time.

    Smoking in the house would have prevented this. Time for a new law no outside smoking allowed.

    Sounds like the brothers got off easy. The resident needs a higher capacity mag.

    He most likely was using either an inferior "Black rifle" or an "assault pistol".

    He needs to wise up, and listen to Joe Biden about the deadly attributes of the shotgun.

    Smart that the homeowner didn't (apparently) draw and fire until he was inside his home. My guess is he wasn't carrying when they confronted him. Either way, well done.

    My guess is that since he was attacked outside and forced inside (it only takes a fraction of a second to be pushed inside your home) that he didn't have time to draw while he was outside before the confrontation moved inside. My guess is that he WAS carrying when they confronted him, but he wasn't able to draw immediately. I'm guessing the entire confrontation probably took no more than a handful of seconds.
