    Akron OH -- Would-Be Robbery Victim Fires Back, Literally

    I guess this happened in OH, NOT WI.. My apologies, the article didn't make that clear.http://www.wsaw.com/home/headlines/W...136369278.html
    The 22 year old, a registered gun owner, has never shot at a person before. Is he sorry he did now? "You are going to put a gun on my forehead, in my house, trying to steal all my stuff? Of course I am going to shoot you, I don't feel bad about it, it's your fault."

    Outstanding. I am now rethinking wearing it on my hip while at home.

    Is it just me, or is inviting strange people you meet on Craigslist into your home pretty stupid?

    You mean you have not been doing that? Ever run a Tueller drill with someone bursting through your front door and your SD impliment "over there"? It will stop your rethinking and make you actually do it.

    Nope, it's just you!

    OK, seriously, that has got to be in the running for Fail of the Year.

    stay safe.

    That is a very good question! Worse, what did the reporterette/editors mean by including it?

    Hi bnhcomputing - can you make a correction in the title of this thread? This incident took place in Akron, OH and not in Wisconsin.

    Let me clarify....I do wear it on my hip at home and everywhere I go all the time, except in my work building where I cannot.

    I was talking about moving it to an IWB in the small of my back. But then again I would never be able to sit, so it will stay in my Serpa on my side.

    I have sat in various chairs & even driven a car with such as you describe & I was, if not perfectly comfortable, at least reasonably so. I was aware it was there but it was neither uncomfortable nor painful.

    (For those who are now gleefully thinking that they've caught me admitting something illegal... This was in a place where one of my licenses was valid.)
