    A friend sent me this link and I thought I would share. It's about a man CCW who had to use his weapon:

    that is crazy, and the fact he managed to fend off the attacker after being shot 3 times is even crazier.

    On the last page...somewhere in the 30's when I read it, there are pics of the criminal with his wound. Interestingly, the CCW's hand has smooth holes for entry and exit. The crook's hand has a less pretty exit wound. Curious to know the ammo.

    He should have waited for the police.

    I believe I read the criminal was shooting .38spl +P... Speer maybe. Not sure what .45 the OP was using though but the exit wound on the bad guy's hand sure looked a lot worse than his.

    Pics are always good to see actual wound damage. Glad he kept it together.

    If I had to guess, I'd say Winchester Ranger-T 230gr. I'm no expert, but there's a pic that seems to have the typical Ranger Talons of the jacket separated from the lead core next to evidence tag #9. It's the last picture of Blitz_308's post on 10/10/2011 12:02:12 AM, which is on page 29. Sure looks like the famous Talons to me.

    What kind of exit wound does a whistle leave? In all seriousness, he kept fighting knowing that it was going to hurt a little & had potential to kill him or his buddies. Lesson? Don't wait and take the very first opportunity..dude is lucky he didn't get shot once the empty holster was found. Btw; That IS why you carry!

    With that kind of wound on the hand, I wonder if he would be able to depress the grip safety on the XDs/1911. [thinking] Never thought about that one.

    that's what he suspect lead to what he thought at the time was a failure with the weapon.

    if it were around here the dude would probably get probation because "he was just about to turn his life around". Glad the OP from the article is ok and able to relay his story.

    glad to hear he is not seriously injured and doing well, as well as all of his friends. Glad to see the assclown in prison where he belongs.

    Rough situation, but handled it well. Glad things worked out for him. Also, What 1911 was that a sig target stainless? I don't read through the whole thing, but saw the pics. In a defensive situation, I sure see why people like 45s.
