Very good information, a couple of real good lessons for our members, real life lessons.

First have weapon ready to go with one in the pipe, on your person. Have a good few rounds, in this Gentleman's case, 11 .40 cal ones.

He states act quick, and so he pretended - "I am having a heart attack" as a distraction, and then going for his pistol, he then continuing to fire at which ever target he had in his view, till his pistol was empty.

My own view (and not faulting his actions, he won did he not!) is Pistol always in a holster, the smallest package with the most rounds possible (Glock 19 with 16 rounds in it) and a spare 17 round magazine in case of a malfunction.

And you did note, I hope, no macho stuff. He sounded genuinely sorry he had taken the lives of the two men, but if he had not, he and his Wife would have been dead.

70 years old,war veteran,landlord doing his best to rehave the homes he rents for people he rents to.

If this man did not act,he and his wife would have most likely been dead.

Very,very sad he had to even go through what he did.

And I am so glad he was ready to save his and his wifes life like he did.

That's fifteen minutes of reality there.

He did'nt have any time to call 911-he had to save his and his wifes life.

The guy is really sad he had to do it too.

I'll bet he sells alot of his houses and gets out of the landlord business after that.
