A homeowner in Houston, Texas, defended himself when an intruder allegedly broke into his residence on March 3, 2022.

He was asleep on the second floor of the home that early Thursday morning, when the sound of glass breaking at 1 a.m. awoke him. An intruder made his way inside the home, and eventually came to the stair to the second floor. When the intruder began to make his way up the stairs, he was confronted by the homeowner, who had armed himself. Upon encountering the intruder in the stairway, the homeowner fired a single shot.

The round struck the intruder in the neck and spurred him to flee the residence. The wounded would-be burglar then went to neighboring homes, knocking on doors to let the residents know he was shot. When authorities arrived a short time later, the intruder was discovered a few houses away, deceased. Other neighbors claimed that they witnessed the intruder scoping out other homes before the incident, and the homeowner did not face charges for his use of a firearm in self-defense.

Masoed fell to the floor and grabbed a handgun from under the counter. Firing twice, the owner critically wounded his attacker. (The Sentinel, Milwaukee Wis.)

Favorite Firearms: A Long-Barreled Dan Wesson

I walked into a gun store and saw a pistol that I knew was right for me: a clean, sharp-looking Dan Wesson Model 15 in .357 Mag., with beautiful wood stocks and a 12" barrel that stuck out of a hole cut in the side of the original box.
