    Good. Woman defends against home invader, no shots fired.

    Here we have another break in by a disoriented home invader. This one had a better outcome. A well trained gun owner, confident in her ability, stopped the invasion with out tragedy.

    A 'disoriented' (AKA intoxicated perhaps?) teen kicked in the door of the wrong house. She confronted him and didn't shoot when he stopped. He didn't get shot, the invasion was stopped, and she doesn't have to live with having taken a life.

    I don't see how the woman could have done it any better than she did.

    The idjet needs to learn that any door kicked in is at the 'wrong' house. Perhaps he'll learn from this little brush with the Reaper. Probably not, but stranger things have happened.


    Good for the citizen, for being capable of withstanding the threat.

    Sounds like she handled it perfectly. The "intoxicated youth" is extraordinairly lucky to be alive.

    Luckily, his 'disorientation' disappeared instantly at the sight of her gun.

    I would hope the moron who kicked in her front door is made to pay for a new door and associated parts and installation immediately.

    Yep poor "disoriented yute kicks in what he thought was his friends door after being polite enough to smoke outside.
    Baloney. His disorientation cleared up at the muzzle of a gun he didnt expect to find facing him and his "friend" is likely covering for the failed crime attempt.

    But good on the woman for not blowing him away. Though she had every right to do so.

    That could very well have been his last smoke all because he's stupid. I'm glad the lady didn't have to suffer the consequences of his actions.
