Successful self defense

Since our trustworthy friends in the media are so good at putting these stories in the news...HA!

Does anyone have some good links to true stories of successful self defense? I'd like to hear about how real people in real situations that have used their weapons to defend themselves and their loved ones from would-be attackers. Whether it be out in public or in their homes and what was the outcome from those events? Personal experiences would be especially interesting to hear!

The NRA-ILA has a page entitled The Armed Citizen. That looks like a good place to start.
