    The guy plead not guilty? Is he claiming he is a door to door salesman?

    She has the right attitude but needs more range time.

    Only problem she missed her target.

    Nicely handled. She might have waited until the door was actually breached, if she wanted to be absolutely certain of remaining lily-white with respect to the statutes. But otherwise, she did well. She called 911; she warned the intruder, who continued to deliberately attempt entry; she fired, and he apologized (apparently knowing full well he'd been caught with his butt in a wringer).

    MAG-20 for her next birthday present.
