Good for her. Too bad she didn't have one of those free Texas shotguns.

They need to take up a collection and send her to the range for some practice. I'll donate.

The evil gun made her do it. Good thing it didn't have a bayonet lug.

And get her something cheaper and less brutal to shoot. I don't care a button for .357. For her a little Sig with 16 rounds of 9mm +P HPs and that guy would be saving the taxpayers some money right now instead of being a drain on the system.

Exactly what I was thinking.


I was intrigued by her recollection that after she fired the guy said "I'm sorry, ma'am. I'm leaving. Please don't shoot."

The "ma'am" seems strangely out of place.

I'm glad, however, that she didn't hit him and maim him. Like as not he would have sued, and probably recovered from her insurance.

She is lucky it was registered or some POS DA would be trying to prosecute her.

Not from Aklim's porn stash, too hardcore.

yup, it's cocked as well, that muzzle decking her in the face would leave a mark for sure.
