"Homicide detectives are still investigating an overnight shooting in which a resident of a north Houston apartment said he disarmed a burglar and killed him with his own gun."
Better to use your own, but hey not only did this guy improvise, he was a good shot too! :congrats:
Interesting issue Paymeister
You raise a fairly interesting issue. In my martial arts class we often practiced knife disarms. Typically the immediate follow through was to plunge the knife back into the attacker--almost in one smooth motion of disarm-stab.

Looking at the entire situation, disparity of two to one, an ongoing struggle for the gun, armed bgs obviously engaged in burglary of a habitation, I would think the shoot was fully justified--- but you never know.
