Elderly MI Homeowner Shoots 1 of 2 Burglars With a .410 Shotgun

http://www.wwmt.com/shared/newsroom/top-stories/stories/wwmt_calhoun-co-homeowner-shoots-at-wouldbe-robbers-4699.shtml

A Calhoun County homeowner says he took matters into his own hands when he shot at intruders trying to rob his house, and actually hit one of them.

Out of ammo, the owner says he hit the other intruder with the shotgun. That burglar fought back, knocking the man and his elderly wife to the ground.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I bought some of the PDX 410 ammo just for kicks but haven't tried it yet. Figured it'd be pretty mean in the 410 semi-auto.

1. Sounds like a good shoot. .410 out of handgun is carp. You need the long barrel

 

Otherwise you're better off using .45 long Colt, but you already knew that. This was for the noobz and their new gunz.

2. "In the butt!!" Fitting. The Hyperpunk who persisted

In the attack will load himself up with extra yearage for thugging out on two old people. If you can't get his rearage, add on the yearage.

3. Classic example of why magazine capacity limits are silly.

 

Out of ammo, the owner says he hit the other intruder with the shotgun. That burglar fought back, knocking the man and his elderly wife to the ground.

Sounds like he had a double-barreled shotgun - 2 shots.

This is a great example of why magazine capacity limits are silly. Firearms are only useful as long as they contain ammunition. The more ammo they hold, the longer they remain useful. Otherwise, they just become a club.

4. But if everyone had a club after two shots imagine how safe we'd be.

6. Or they should at least repeal the ban on canned-bean lugs

 

imagine the damage he could have done wielding some of Bush's secret family recipe.

/the last US military bean-can charge may have been back in the Korean war but I still think they have a place today.

7. The author sounds surprised

 

A Calhoun County homeowner says he took matters into his own hands when he shot at intruders trying to rob his house, and actually hit one of them.

Because normally he would fire hundreds of rounds, miss every time, and instead end up shooting hundreds of innocent bystanders and children in playgrounds.

9. To ileus

 

I put together a Mossberg .410 pump as a defensive gun.

It is wearing an 18.5 inch cylinder choke barrel,and let me say that the little gun patterns well with #4 Buck, '000' Buck,and is highly accurate with slugs.

I put it together after watching a vid on youtube.

The guy in the vid seemed to know what he was talking about,and I highly recommend taking a look at it.
