    Sounds like she did well, but she needs a bigger gun or more reliable ammunition

    In my neighborhood, you'd not likely get that far.

    I'm not so sure. You or I would take the lesson and move on (actually I doubt we'd have been there in the first place) but this guy obviously has a problem. Now he has to prove that he still has power over this woman and he'll be lurking, just waiting for her to drop her guard.

    Sometimes just having the attention of the wrong person can be bad. Even if she knew who he was but didn't know him may mean that she is on his radar. If he is looking for a target that isn't random he is going to start thinking of people that he knows or is aware of. It may not be her fault for drawing his attention but the outcome can be just as bad. I'm glad she shot the guy. It's too bad he lived. :(

    From what I understand, if you don't hit in the eye socket area, or just above it, it is not uncommon for a bullet to go in just under the skin and follow the skull around, just under the skin without penetrating. Now a shot like that may put them down for a count, but not permanently.

    I am talking about a 9mm, or 45 acp., and not a 44 mag. :p
