    Yes, absolutely. That's the way it's supposed to work.

    Just goes to show the mentality of the criminal.... go for the easy low risk target. And this girl WAS NOT IT!

    3 badguys
    1 pink bolt action 22lr SINGLE SHOT mini-rifle
    1 11 year old HEROINE.

    No one shot, all badguys OUTATHERE and one 11 year old with a hell of a story!

    I am glad it worked out good for her! I could have been much worse!

    WOW, ok it worked out well..BUT I just cant see this as a positive. 3 armed grown male intruders, vs a little girl with a single shot 22, and 2 rounds.

    NO WAY! Id rather they steal everything I own than my 11 yr old daughter have to actually shoot another human being.

    And even that would be mild to the way this could have ended.


    Id much rather her run to my bedroom, climb out a window, and run like hell than her grab a single shot 22 with 2 bullets and go room by room clearing the house looking to confront 3 grown and armed men.

    Awesome little girl with lots of guts, BUT this will be a NOT TO DO talk with my daughter.

    I didn't get that she used the pink rifle to stop the robbery.

    I got that she ran to the bedroom when she saw they were armed, got the gun, and they left before she reappeared with her gun, getting caught by the police while she was clearing the house.

    Is this a case of an overselling thread title?

    I knew the story sounded familiar. It happened in August, and I'm pretty sure it was reported here on OCDO at the time.

    And what exactly does "pink" have to do with it?

    As opposed to an evil black rifle (EBR) - her's was pretty.
