Woman wounds two would-be robbers

They could have done much worse to her. Nobody knows their true intentions, maybe they knew she was home and wanted to rape her, or something. They did live on the same street

Shoot to kill, NOT to wound

She needs a bigger gun if they were able to run home! Or just be a better shot, my wife has taken many self defense courses and also is a better shot than me. I feel sorry for the fellow that thinks he wants something out of my house while either of us are home!
As my dad the special forces green beret would say "1 shot 1 kill"

Simple enough the best homedefense weapon is a 12 gauge pump shotgun. All you do is point in the direction of the threat and pull trigger.

If you think a 12 gauge shotgun is to much for you to handle. Invest in the new stocks that are out. That remove the recoil of the shotgun. Sure they are pricey but when your life is on the line they are worth the investment.

I will put money on it that if she used a 12 gauge shotgun those boys would not have been running home.

Good for her. Too bad she didn't have a couple of catahoula tracking dogs. There would have been no need for an ambulance.

She did the right thing. Rarely any charges in Texas on this kind of deal. Had she killed them though, in Texas you have to field dress them.

Good for her. I wish they would have said what caliber gun she was using. I also agree with the shot gun. Hell, all you would have to do for me is pump the thing and I would be out of there in a hurry.

She absolutely did the right thing!! She had no where to go and had locked herself in and hunkered down.

Reading one of the comments below the article, ".....the apple didn't fall to far from the tree." My concern here is that some of the family members don't go there to do her harm because she protected herself.

OTOH, maybe she's down at the "Guns-R-US" store 'enhancing' her arsenal.

This is one of the reasons why I think I'm going to get me a defender style 12 gauge. I don't think the wife would hit somebody with the .40. Granted that across a room the shot only spreads a couple of inches but it's still easier to hit something with a long gun.
