    How many intruders in your home does it take before you feel uncomfortable with a “Hickenlooper magazine” of only 12 rounds? What if it is only one (1) intruder – Nathan Dunlap? James Holmes?

      If you need 12 rounds to hit (wound/kill) an intruder, you should not be allowed to carry a gun. One of the first things they teach you is how to aim and pull the trigger! but doing it correctly, takes practice.

    I agree with “Craig Smith,” she did the correct thing. To confirm the theft of her vehicle, I hope much she actually hit her vehicle to confirm 1) She did shoot at the thief(s) 2) she did hit one of the thief(s) to prove that he/she/they has posession of Stolen property.
