According to the CBS affiliate in Texas a woman awoke during the night to discover there were two criminals in her home. At age age 61 she had rehearsed these types of events in her mind many times and was ready to react.
She did what most of us would do. She retrieved her firearm and when confronted she began to fire. She injured one of her attackers and that is when her nightmare really began.
When she ran out of ammunition the attackers heard the “click click” of the gun and the uninjured one took advantage of that moment.
He must of heard me clicking it because that’s when he came back and beat me up really bad,” said the woman.
The second attacker moved in and began to assault her. She suffered a concussion and her face was covered was cuts and bruises. Its anyone's worst nightmare.
Both suspects were arrested later that day when the injured criminal sought out medical attention at a nearby hospital.
While we are glad this woman survived the encounter it leaves us all with a sobering thought. Do you have enough rounds? Do you carry enough ammunition? We love to tell ourselves that we are a good enough shot or that we carry an effective enough round that we only need a few to stop the threat. When I hear these excuses I always call them out for what they are. If you think 5-6 rounds is always going to be enough you are not living in reality.
