    OOooooo, that stinks.

    STUPID all around! Don't shoot, much less kill, a skunk on your back porch..... you wont get rid of the smell.
    Don't shoot your sidearm anywhere near your house if you don't have too.
    There are only four rules for a reason and following those rules prevents stupidity like this.

    Something about this story stinks...

    She SAID she was aiming for a skunk, but do we know she meant the type with 4 legs, or 2?

    What does her having a concealed handgun permit have to do with anything?

    Nothing except to add irrelevant material to a generally stupid article.

    Well bouncing it off the deck and through the door she is Annie Oakley.

    Shoot the skunk while he/she is away from the house with no hard surface to ricochet.

    That's her story, and she's sticking to it. Anyone else see a skunk around at the time ? LOL
    Her husband is lucky.
