    Icon14 Woman Fights Back After Attack

    First and foremost I applaud this lady for being armed and choosing to fight back. She was down, but not out. After being punched in the face by a male attacker, she got herself back in the fight and won.

    First constructive advice, Awareness & Avoidance (Situational Awareness) has always been and will always be more important than being armed. Don't just "look", "SEE" what's going on around you. If she had seen these two men walking toward her she could've locked herself back inside the store and called 911. By her own admission,
    "I turned around and two males were right on me".

    Second, go ahead and keep that .32 as your "lucky charm" backup. It stopped an escalating attack and may have saved your life in this situation. As the saying goes, "Any gun is better than no gun". That said, upgrade your primary CCW to .38 Special or 9mm. Both are vastly superior to the .32ACP.

    Once again, I applaud you for your never-give-up, always-fight-back attitude. You did a GREAT job.




    Woman Fights Back After Attack


    By Jennifer Phillips


    LANDRUM, SC (FOX Carolina) - Landrum police said they were called to a local business after a woman said two men tried to rob and sexually assault her, but she scared them off when she fired shots at them.

    The sign on the door states "Closed until Thursday," but when an employee of Cakes and Confections 4U in Landrum walked out the back door to lock up, she said two men attacked her.

    "Locked the door, took the key, locked the dead bolt and I turned around and two males were right on me," she said.

    The woman, who asked not to be identified, said one attacker punched her in the jaw and the other ripped off a necklace and tore earrings from her ears.

    But she said the attack didn't stop there.
    "He pulled my shirt down which was a V-neck shirt, which exposed my breast," she said.

    But what the two robbers didn't know is the employee also packs heat. She had a gun tucked in the back of her pants, one she recently decided to carry to work. So, she used it.

    "So I didn't really have time to aim, I just fired and they ran. When they ran they screamed, 'Oh hell no,' and dropped the jewelry," she said.

    She then ran to the Landrum Police Department, just a few feet away.

    She said her .32 caliber saved her life, and she has a message for women.
    "If you don't have a gun or you're scared of guns, get familiar with them and get a gun," she said.

    Police said a K-9 unit tracked a scent but lost it a few blocks away from the scene. They are also checking surveillance video from cameras at surrounding businesses to see if they can identify the two men.

    Officers said the men were dressed in dark clothes. One had a dark, straight-billed baseball cap with bull horns on the front while the other was wearing a dark hoodie and dark baggy cargo pants.

    Nothing was stolen, according to the incident report. As of Tuesday, no arrests have been made in the case.

    If you have any information. call the Landrum Police Department at 864-457-7281.

    Another example that shows that predators respect only one thing--strength. You're not going to reach them with anything else, it's a waste of time. Women--take a good shooting class, get a firearm and PRACTICE.

    Amen.

    I still find it an amazing technological achievement of how the firearm is such an instant equalizer. Whether it's a lone woman versus two male attackers, an elderly couple home alone versus home invaders, or a young couple out walking versus gangbang street thugs. The firearm instantly cancels out any advantage of size, strength, or numbers.
