Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Hi Power Help Edition

“Find something else to do besides try to rob people because you came real close to losing your life yesterday.” That’s the advice Mark Sikes of Bogart, GA has for the burglar who let himself into Sikes’ home recently. The wheelchair-bound vet used a little silent Hi Power persuasion to change the intruder’s plans and send him running into the night. The incident seems to have made the homeowner re-think the wisdom of home carry as he had to retrieve his Browning from a drawer when he heard his door being kicked in. As myfoxatlanta.com is reporting, “Sikes, who served as a military police officer in Korea, says he’s keeping his 9mm pistol close by following the attempted burglary.” Glad he didn’t learn the hard way.
