    According to the media - man grabs shot gun then fires Rifle

    HAMPTON FALLS, N.H. -- A homeowner made a daring move on Monday night when he discovered an intruder in his Hampton Falls home.

    Police said the man arrived at his Kensington Road home and noticed shadows inside. He grabbed a shotgun and went inside.

    The homeowner and an armed, masked intruder came face-to-face, and police said the homeowner fired his rifle.

    The shot missed the burglar, who ran to the basement of the home.

    Police said the owner of the home then called 911. Somehow during that time the intruder escaped.

    State and local police responded and searched the area but did not find anyone. Nothing had been taken from the home.

    Police said that the home has been the site of a previous break-in where several people wearing dark clothing were found inside. They are investigating the most recent burglary.

    Officers recommend that people do not confront an intruder. They said people should get to a safe place and call for help.

    Not sure why they had to bring up dark clothing. Is it against the law there to wear dark clothing? (Yes I know it helps to conceal yourself at night) Just sounds weird, and I have never seen this reported before.

    the mainstream media has had a shoddy record reporting on the technical aspects of firearms.

    giving them the benefit of the doubt...maybe the weapon is one of those shotgun/rifle combos like the savage model 24 .223/12 gauge or something.

    just playing devil's advocate. sorry.

    My local paper, the Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, VA reported on the killing of a police officer where his service weapon was stolen by the BG. It was described as a Glock 9mm in the article, but the headline referred to it as a revolver. To their credit, the paper corrected the error a couple of days later.

    Newspapers are full of errors. When I read articles on subjects I know something about, I can easily pick them out. But when the subject is something about which I know little, I tend to believe every word; even though I know that I'm being fed just as many wrong facts.
