Why it's a gamble to leave them home alone. Leaves me wondering. f'I da shot a guy going outbound and not in the house anymore, the results would be me in cuffs. The kid? Righteous shoot.
Now. More target practice.

Casey - while I agree the young man needs a little more range time to get his "buck fever" tamped down, I do commend the local authorities not bringing charges despite the bad guy being in the act of leaving with his ill-gotten goods.

I would prefer someone saying about the perpetrator "If he wanted a safer profession the technical/community college has some very good classes."

Casey - It happened in Alabama - northeast Alabama, which is next door to Appalachia. We have a different breed of local authorities down here.

Good job son. The thief is fortunate that you were using FMJs and that you didn't put one in his heart.
