Spouses backing up each other, example in news
« on: November 03, 2019, 06:22:59 PM »
Important lesson here.  Spouses need to be prepared to back each other up.  Also shows why so many women are turning to the AR.

Victim of Violent Home Invasion Speaks; Credits Wife With Saving His Life

King said he was inside his home Wednesday when two masked men armed with guns barged in around 9:00pm. He said he doesn't know who they are, never met them and has no idea why he was targeted.  Both men pointed guns at King while demanding money.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” he said.

“I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’" King explained. "[A]nd they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the men started pistol-whipping him while another kicked him repeatedly in the head. His wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in the back bedroom and peeked out to see what was going on.

King said one of the men shot at her. She retreated, grabbed an AR-15 and returned fire.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King said. “[My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me. “

Don't forget to tell her that the goal on the AQT is to hit exactly 210.   ;)

I don't think I'll be able to get her out for a WinterSeed but will when it's a touch warmer!  Until then I'll just keep working on the basics.
