    Taurus revolver mentioned in article on defending against a home invasion

    Not that the mention really matters, because almost any functioning revolver would've performed the same. The defender fired from the hip, only got 2 hits out of 5, and one of those wasn't a good hit. Even the heart/aorta hit didn't immediately incapacitate the attacker. It's a good article on what can go wrong and mistakes made even if the home owners do end up surviving.

    Whew, that will raise the hair on your neck. Total surprise that the shot placement to the heart didn't end the fight right there. I need to practice those head and neck shots more.

    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    This is the very reason I keep pleading with my wife to try a handgun in a larger caliber than .22.
    So far, no luck. She's terrified of the recoil of my polly guns. Gonna have to get a 1911 in 9mm. Maybe that'll do it.

    That was a helluva day. I'm glad they both survived...albeit a little worse for wear.
    Beats the alternative.

    Terrifying account, sort of a play by play as it became very mentally visual and rather visceral. Once you get that adrenaline dump, focus and stability go right out the window but you have the strength of a silverback gorilla. We have a standing routine here that during an armed situation, folks here arm, safeties off and get low. The one I worry about is my son who has learning difficulties. Give him a list of 5 things to do and he'll do 3 and those will be the 3 of his choosing.

    Yes they are. Classic firearms and Palmetto have sent me ads. If ammo was more easily available I would be all over it.
