The guy seemed to be surprised that I had shot an intruder. I don't know what the dispatcher had told him.
He asked for my weapon and I unloaded it and handed it to him. That seemed to upset him a little. He informed me that it was too much for home security.
Shortly after I let the policeman in the door, the wife came out of the bedroom and screamed. She was actually complaining about the mess and asking the policeman who had to clean it*.
The ambulance and about five more squads cars arrived at the same time. One EMT checked me out while the other one went inside to check on the body.
I was speaking to police the majority of the time, and was in the front yard when the gurney came out of the house. By this time, neighbors were lined up in the adjacent yards trying to get a look. I never spoke to any of them about it.
I found out later that the guy had PCP in his system. And they never found out who the other guy was.
As for UK, you'd be looking at life. Or the lack of it. In a pine box.
* Turns out you have to pay a hazmat crew to clean it up. We re-deco'd the kitchen shortly after that.
Hell of a thing, fubar. I won't tell you not to feel guilty - you are guilty. Guilty of doing the correct thing to protect your family, to whom you owe vastly more than any stranger, especially one invading your home with malicious intent.
He's (Obama) the President of Hate. He has magically allowed the blue monkeys to embrace hatred, to feel proud of it, to murder, to conquer. They never would have been able to take this step without him.
I was raised by a cop and hunted religiously. I grew up with and around guns. I have firsthand experience with what different calibre rounds do to thin-skinned animals (and humans are just that).
I had been leery of using that particular gun for home defense just because I thought that if I had to use it, I might wind up killing my next door neighbor as well. Maybe a 9mm or .40 cal would have been better.
Considering what the guy had in his system, a smaller round like those would likely have gotten me shot. Hell, considering how much damage a .44 round did, it only knocked him out for a few seconds before he was able to gather his senses and use his arms to move around the kitchen.
I honestly don't think the cop had ever fired a weapon before he joined the force, and had probably never drawn his weapon in the line of duty.
