    Awesome story, I am happy the good guy won. Jeff's statement, "You don’t have to live on the poor side of town to be a victim of a violent crime." This is the same thing the officer had said to me the night of my recent encounter with the bad guy. Another lesson from
    this story always have your pajamas on, you never know when there will be a gunfight in the middle of the night. Home invasions are on the rise, is something I had read somewhere. Hope everyone stays safe.

    Great story. There is a huge burden of emotional second guessing and the constant replaying of events surrounding a life altering experience. Even in a situation that you know you were right, justified and needed to do what had to be done, you will be tormented with that decision for quite sometime. Take a situation such as this...you may be prepared with the equipment, the training, the knowledge of the laws and your rights and have played numerous scenarios over and over again - but the one thing you can never be prepared for is the emotional aspect of involved with a defensive firearm use. Jeff's story should be a must read for all carry newbies and part of all defensive firearms instruction.

    Maybe I missed it, but where was the part about the pajamas? And what if you don't own any?

    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

    Jeff only had his underwear on when he was going to the police car. I bet that was a sight! I don't know if he owned any pajamas.

    In earthquake country we normally have slippers by our beds. I also have a pair of sweat pants and T-shirt on a nearby chair that I can put on in an earth-shaker too.

    But sleeping with clothes on is not healthy for your skin.

    Just because I have a 45ACP instead of a spear does not mean I cannot hunt down an intruder like prehistoric man used to do routinely in my skin only.

    Some of you must be really shy if you are still sleeping in your 'jammies past age 5 or 10.

    After you blow somebody away, there is plenty of time to put on sweatpants and a T-shirt before the LEOs arrive.

    It takes them at least 5 to 10 minutes to get there anyway. That's the whole reason you always need your own handgun with you at all times anyway.

    And what ever happened to castle doctrine? Was this a state with no castle doctrine?
