Default Tulsa Woman Shoots Intruders

Thankfully, she had a weapon and knew how to use it.

Damn lucky she was armed. Walking back to your place at 0350hrs after a fast food visit??

Good for her, but what was that your parents told you about nothing good for you happening past midnight??

The moral of this story is to be well armed if you're out wandering the streets at 3 AM. Do people have ANY common sense anymore???

I am going to go with "it's getting to be less and less abundant" as a canned response on that one Dave....

Another happy ending.

Another example of how--even with two BG's--one doesn't usually need any more than 5 rounds to end most critical situations. The difference here was shot placement! 2 head shots? Yowza!!

She could have used the 15 rounds from some 9mm semi-auto, but a revolver with "only" five rounds was good enough to end this one the right way.

I'm often out in the middle of the night, I work in the middle of the night. Not everyone gets a 9-5 job. Not complaining, I'm just making a point.

Many times I may come home at 2-4a.m. or I may go to a fast food joint to have 'lunch'.

Whatever her circumstances I'm glad she is not the one laying somewhere dead.

I need to read the TW more often - this is the first I've heard of this one. Good shooting though, too bad one made it.
