    Not ideal. but the end is good. Sometimes, even the unarmed can prevail, though I prefer the odds for the armed/prepared homeowner.

    Happy it ended well, but I would obviously prefer to have a gun of my own - wrestling guns from armed perpetrators is a recipe for a short life...

    All's well that ends well!
    Hopefully, this dirtbag will spend a couple of decades in jail, although a dirtnap would have been more beneficial to society.

    Yep, I would rather have my own gun ready and use it. It's silly to have to wrestle a gun away from an intruder to shoot him. And, you can do better at shot placement, no need for a hospital trip.

    The only thing I'd suggest is the LEOs not arrest him until released. Once arrested, the department is on the hook for any medical treatment. Guess the BG forgot the 21-foot rule.

    There's an important lesson here for all who might try to use a handgun in SD.
    1) Don't lose control of it
    2) Some criminals are fairly skilled and quick and will attempt to disarm you.
    3) See 1.

    ...evidently the BG hadn't read the GG rule book...ain't we glad!!!

    ...I'm one of the most naturally slow moving folks on Earth, and yet I can consistantly take a handgun from someone if I can get them talking and at arm's reach...it's that easy...
