    LACOOCHEE, Fla. Authorities say a gun shot aimed at a sheriff's deputy was stopped by a metal business card holder the deputy had in his breast pocket.

    Investigators in Pasco County, Fla., were looking for the suspect Friday.

    Two deputies responded to a burglary alarm Thursday night at a store in the southwest Florida town of Lacoochee.

    Authorities say the suspect fired several shots from inside as the deputies were approaching.

    Deputy Jeffrey Chandler was hit in the chest. Officials say the bullet was slowed after passing through the store's front glass window and metal shield that covered the glass.

    Chandler was wearing a bulletproof vest, but the bullet was stopped by the card holder.
    Sometimes it is best to be lucky.
    Of course, presumably if his biz card holder will stop a bullet,
    his vest should have worked, too.

    Lucky man.

    His number wasn't up.

    I'd be ticked that he shot my card holder though.

    If I caught him, one of us would get a serious whippin...
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Return fire! Bad guys don't wear metal business card holders ;).
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    I don't think the preacher would appreciate that.

    Luck was on his side though!
