Good story out of NC. Nice that he had the tools on hand to defend his life...

1. Ohle said he reached for a single-shot shotgun he keeps by the door..

what kind of wuss-ass doesn't use a .223 carbine with jungle-taped 30 rd mags to defend his castle? i'm not buying this story.

2. Even the cheapest AR's are 500 bucks...not everyone can afford a nice carbine.

I hope he evaluates his emergency preparedness.


For most people a single 30 is enough for self defense. For my AR I keep one 30 in the lower and a second one near my 45 on the headboard.

As the old saying goes; Better to have and not need than need and not have.
