    I would say you nailed it Gadfly.

    This story is full of holes, too, leaving many questions unanswered. Was he just not prepared to shoot?

    Anyway, I'll just jump to the conclusion that the guy was an armed doofus who lived to screw up another day.

    Call the cops? Might as well go back inside, finish your coffee and then . . . call your insurance agent.
    If you are going to confront someone and you are bringing a gun into the equation you had better be prepared to use it. Otherwise stay inside and call the cops.

    Man pistol-whipped and stabbed with a screwdriver
    AHWATUKEE - Galen Kreiger keeps his eyes on his 1965 Corvair at all times through video surveillance.
    After all, his wife restored it herself.
    Now, she is recovering from a sprained ankle, and Galen wears bandages on his legs, hand, and face.
    Around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, some one tried to steal the stereo from the Corvair in the front driveway.
    Galen saw the men on video surveillance, grabbed his .45 caliber, and tried to stop them.
    He threw his hands up and said, Dont shoot! Dont shoot! Im an illegal and just trying to get some money to go home, says Galen.
    Galen ended up leaving home to go to the hospital.
    Graphic pictures document what happened next.
    He threw a screwdriver that stuck in my hand and I dropped the gun, says Galen.
    I bent over to grab it, and he rushed me.
    Galen now has no hearing after the suspect busted his ear drum.
    He got me down on the concrete and smashed my head down to the concrete, pistol-whipped me on the side of the head and kicked me, Galen says.
    When his wife ran to get another gun, she sprained her ankle.
    The suspect took off with Galens gun into an awaiting truck.
    Now, the couple is just waiting to recover and waiting for police to find their attacker.
    It was a lucky day- lucky for two of us, says Galen.
    He got away and Im still alive. It could have been worse.
    He threw a screwdriver that stuck in his hand. What are the chances of that happening?

    If he's close enough for you to hit him with spit (10 feet) then he's twice as close as he should be. Shoot, backup, or just hand him your gun and save the beating.

    This just proves that Ralph Nader is right!!! They are unsafe at any speed!!

    If it were a Mustang we would be reading about two bad guys being captured and turned over to the police!

    I wish our heros a speedy recovery, and hopefully they have learned a valuable from this.
