Default Would be robber gets shot in stomach

Great news no charges will be filed, after all this is Alabama.

Score one for the person who armed themselves and defended themselves.

Score one for the AL justice system for NOT charging the person defending their own life as some sort of criminal.

Agreed. +1 for the Alabama District Attorney for getting this one right. Great read.

Let's just hope the thug doesn't try and sue the victim for damages.

Default 45?

Well, something went wrong with the last thread on this subject, so here it is again, back from the dead. Is 45 acp enough bullet to take down a whitetail with? Does anyone have any experience with this? I am looking at trying my luck with handgun hunting. I know that the 45 will work wonders on a human body and most deer usually are about the same size.

Now I know I just got here , and I hate to stop a good roll about bad guys gettin' the Hard Goodbye ,,, but I will .
Ok , I am just an old farm boy who's done a helluva lot of huntin and shootin , so please don't take anything I say as Gospel . But , in regards to .45acp and Mr. Whitetail ,, Hell Yes it will do the job ! ,,With these caveats ,,
I used a Marlin Camp gun and kept my range to 50yds max , now with a handgun I just don't know , you better have a good hot heavy bullet , be a Dang good shot , and keep range as tight as possible . Because you will want that good heart-lung shot for sure.
