    Exclamation Resident halts home invasion, KHOU, Houston, Texas, 01/12/13

    A man was at his home in Houston, Texas when an intruder attempted to gain access to the house by using a piece of concrete to smash a front window. When the resident became aware of the attempted intrusion he retrieved a gun and fired at the criminal, striking him in the stomach. When the wounded home invader tried to pursue the resident, the homeowner fired at the criminal a second time, striking him in the hand and ending the intrusion.

    I totally agree with both of you; however, doubt seriously that the homeowner was really aiming for the intruders hand! This is proof why training is so critical, and I don't mean just going to the range and blowing away paper targets. Learn how to place shots where you want them when your adrenalin is flowing and your heart is beating out of your chest. For anyone who has never experienced the feeling, it is a totally different ballgame.

    UGA & Bebo, I know you guys and your background, and have no doubt in your posts...but let's remember that many of our members won't have your experience and training behind them. I don't want anyone to think that shooting holes in a paper target prepares them for this type of confrontation. It is just the beginning.

    Okay, the overly protective mom in me came out strong this morning...sorry!
