    Glad it turned out ok. But I'll bet the shooter's ears are still ringing.

    My HD weapon is a GP100 with four inch barrel loaded with factory 125 grain hollow points. I've often thought of what it would be like to touch off a few of those in an enclosed space, in the middle of the night, from out of a dead sleep.

    Think it would wake you up?

    (Let's just hope none of us ever has to find out, eh?)

    (Knock on wood.)

    There was an old urban legend (perhaps I should say rural legend) around these parts where a farmer awoke with burglar in the house at night. He reached under the bed, layed the shotgun across his sleeping wife as he took aim and BOOM!

    Woke her up. :eek:

    I'll bet the criminal won't try that again very soon.

    P&R, I fired a .357 once without ear protection. It hurts. Alot. I also remember a story of a cop who wound up wrestling a prisoner over his .357 and it went off right by his head and that blew out his ear pretty good. Ask the BG to hold on a sec while you don ear protection. :D

    Good story, love happy endings.

    yah

    which is why it pisses me off that silencers are banned.

    my ideal HD handgun would be a sig p228 with CT, surefire model 340 light, 13 rnds of federal efmj, and a surefire silencer at the end of its threaded barrel.

    it still won't be silent, but at least my ears won't be shot.


    for now, i keep a pair of electronic muffs next to my gun, glasses, and flashlight (anybody got a model 340 surefire they want to sell?)

    Valkman - "They are?"

    Yep, in Kalif.

    Not in Idaho, if you want to pay the Federal Tax.

    ANOTHER NON-COMPLIANT INTRUDER!

    Gee, I don't think this good citizen/survivor ever read the recent "Non-Compliant Intruder" thread here on THR!

    If he had done so, he would have surely welcomed that poor, socially-maladjusted, Non-Compliant Intruder with warm coffee, cookies, and compassion, and then invited him to sing Kumbaya and partake in seminars in "Non-Violent Conflict Resolution" and "Nuanced Decision-Making In High-Stress Interpersonal Confrontations," etc.

    Listen up, buckos. This eeeevil survivor may have prevailed this time. However, for The Common Good and The Children, I urge that:

    1. He be banned from THR before he ever tries to join, corrupt us, and render THR vulnerable to civil litigation by the likes of the Brady Bunch and Hair-Stylists For Gay Whales, plus...

    2. His files be promptly turned over to the FBI for immediate addition to the "A" Watch-List of Violence-Prone Social-Undesirables, i.e., those most likely to resist future confiscatory measures... merely based upon their hard-won-but-very-un-PC Street Sense.

    Guys like this survivor clearly have Blood Lust, and such a mindset is dangerous in a civilized, progressive society.

    Right?
