    I wonder if he has any regrets looking back on it.
    Well he is not in prison, the jury said he did the right thing apparently.

    I just saw earlier this week some guy in San Antonio I think it was shot and killed a prostitute because she wouldn't sleep with him after he paid her and he got off as well lol.

    That is a very sad story. Too bad the guy got away and now he's going to do it again and again and again till someone shoots him. If he comes in my house I feel like I have an obligation to everyone else out there to make sure he never does it again.

    You ever do some proximity alarms around the driveway or corners of the house? Be nice to hear em coming.

    Saturday morning mine went off and I shot out of bed and was ready to attack. Turns out my wife had gotten up early to make coffee and went out to throw something in the garbage - located on the same side as the boat parking. It was barely getting light out when I met her at the back door ready to wrap a 9 iron around her head. Didn't even notice she wasn't in the room when I shot up and went charging out...
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    For $200, it will give you (and your wife) more confidence. For $100, you definately need night sites.

    In the end though, if my gun comes out, odds are the bad guy won't ever see the laser.

    The Red Dot is a different story for sure. LAser down and they know they are target.

I need to start taking Heidi to the range but its hard since everyday she is off work we try to get in the boat! Me being gone so often with work our new house will have a security system and I'm looking into a tactical 870 for the master bedroom. Gotta get her to shoot that too!

    David, We are about to get ours for sure. It would be nice for a 1 day course.

    basically, deadly force is authorized if you feel your life, or that of a third person, is in imminent danger in your residence or curtlidge of residence. I said that to say this, if you draw your weapon be prepared to use it. sounds like Ryan has had justifiable cause to use deadly force if he choose to. what you should never do is fire a "warning shot".

    you are responsible for each shot you fire and must be aware of your "backdrop". if you are authorized to fire a warning shot ( that round could land anywhere) you should/could be able to articulate how you were in fear for you life. because you were in fear for your life, and to protect your life and the lives of your family members, you applied deadly force.

    warning shots are ridiculous, dangerous, and should never be taken. you either have the right to shoot the bad guy or you don't. if you don't have the right to shoot the bad guy and you fire off a warning shot you could be charged accordingly

    Your wife has a better shooting stance than you. You should lean into the gun, not away from it - it makes managing recoil, better. Also close up you fore aft stance and make your stance wider. Google "weaver" stance as it appears to be the closest to what you're shooting now....the isosceles is a more accurate stance still, but takes time to learn.

    I found that a slight bend in my left arm bringing the gun closer helped me not to waver so much. Less of a lever that way.

    weaver stance is tactical and more applicable to what you need for muscle memory. Tripod is good for target shooting for score. Closer to the body is better for retension. Tell you sig. other that her hand placement needs to be in a "push, pull" position and to not "cup" with her left hand. Push with the right, pull with the left.
