What happens when a lunatic decides to break into the home of a former professional wrestler? Even at age 68, Hacksaw Jim Duggan is no pushover. But Duggan took no chances when a man forced his way into his home. The former pro-wrestler took the uninvited guest to the mat, then held him there with a .44 Magnum until deputies arrived.

A .44 just seems to fit a guy who was known as “Hacksaw” in his wrestling days forty-plus years ago.

Duggan then posted his thanks to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office for taking out the trash afterwards.  Talk about a classy guy!

The New York Post covered the incident . . .

Jim Duggan is one of the most recognizable names in pro wrestling and earlier this month he needed to put some of those moves to good use when he was faced with an intruder in his South Carolina home.

Duggan, who goes by “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan in the wrestling world, revealed in an interview with Wrestling Inc. on Friday that his home was broken into on Dec. 8 and that he faced the intruder himself.

The 68-year-old told the wrestling news outlet that a man in his mid-20s entered through his and wife Debra’s front door. Duggan said he took the man down by himself and grabbed his .44 caliber pistol and held the man at gunpoint. The retired wrestler added that he heard more people outside and thought there could be more trouble, so he turned off his Christmas lights and told the man to keep silent.

Duggan said the man he held at gunpoint appeared to be frightened and thought the people in the neighborhood were coming to kill him. Duggan said he called the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department to help take care of the matter.

All’s well that ends well. Merry Christmas, Hacksaw.

    • Wait a minute mister, I didn’t mean to kiss her, don’t want no trouble with you…

      • i always heard “didn’t even,” but “didn’t mean to” is good.
        ‘scuse me while i kiss this guy.
        I found no love, no love in korea. then i jumped out, onion roll.
        i’ve got two chicks and a pair o dice.
        i’ll never leave your pizza burnin’.
        doughnuts make my brown eyes blue.
        let’s pee in the corner. let’s pee in the spotlight.

        • “i always heard “didn’t even,” ”

          I think yours is the right one…

  1. Nice.

    Among other self defense implements, I keep a Ruger Redhawk .44 mag handy, 5.5″ barrel, loaded with 180 gr XTP. It’s a beast!

    • I keep two .45Colt 1873s, 4 3/4″, loaded with 200 grain HPs handy. One has faux ivory grips, and the other faux ebony grips. I call them Yin and Yang.
      Fortunately, home invasion robberies don’t happen around here unless the residents are dealing drugs (and those are very rare), so I am not too concerned.

    • Same here. I get 1900 FPS and a muzzle blast you won’t believe. I load it with 29 Grains of H110. I hope you keep a set of ear protection with it!

    • That would work. I’ve got a S&W model 57 in .41 Magnum loaded with some extra spicy 210 gr XTP loads. 21.9 gr of H110. good medicime

  2. It’s not a big, intimidating magnum, but my old CA 44 Bulldog gets the job done. That 44 caliber muzzle and those big hollow points are definitely a deterrent. Way to go, Hacksaw!

  3. Any man that is 68 and can take down a 20 year old is still one hell of a man. He saved himself a lot of legal trouble by not shooting the 20 year old. Even a lawsuit with no merit can often cost you thousands of dollars in attorney fees.

    • Yeah well, I’m 65 and 65 isn’t that old when you have training plus I’m a NEVER SMOKER. I took it to a guy several weeks ago, a person in his 20s. It was one of those things that when I saw him do what he did, I made the decision to go hands on and “educate him” on the errors of his ways.
      I WATCHED HIM take his puppy and slam him on his back out of frustration. The person was likely a homeless person. Well let me say, that went over like a fart in church with me.
      I wrestled when younger and was good at it and did ten years of KENPO.

      So dumb fucks who don’t know jack-shit that think some guy who’s 65 or 68 is a broken down old man not capable anymore, guess again.

      And Possum is right, most 20 year olds got nothing to being to the table except an uneducated mouth.

    • Common misconception.

      If you lived in Farmville you’d know you don’t mouth off to an old guy because a lot of those old guys can literally slap you once and you’ll be on the way to the moon.

      • I remember a video of wannabe antifa Stosstruppe doing their “raise the fist” (under usual threat of aggravated assault) to a bunch of old guys in the queue at a gun show. I recognized some of them as people from my range. Most were military veterans. Some from Vietnam war. One from the Korean Wat. One was former SAS and a Vietnam vet, and 3 others were ex paras and commandos.

        It did not end well for the wannabe antifa Stosstruppe members. The police had to escort them away for their own safety. 🤣

        • The police probably had to escort them because they were trespassing and/or disturbing the peace. Assuming your “antifa Strosstruppe” were even present in the first place and your entire story isn’t just b.s # 2,500 posted here by one of you keyboard warriors.

      • Post waiting moderation.

        Please let me know which bad words triggered Word Press to throw a hissy fit.

        There were no expletives or political words mentioned. The filtering needs to be customized to accommodate this forum.

  4. No, his wife dialed 911 and his gunm was unloaded.
    The guy was lucky Hacksaw didnt grab his 2×4 , HIIIIYOHHH.
    Hes a real character, Nikoli Volkov was playing the Russian anthem and Hacksaw said ” This is America, Land of the free, you cant play that . HiiiiYohhh”

  5. I come here for the war stories and other b.s. posted by heroes and keyboard warriors. You guys never disappoint, keep it up!

  6. That is a great story and it pleases me that he held the perp at gunpoint until the cops got there.

    That’s a big gun with a lot of glass and noise when fired.
    Am I the only person who has a semi auto with a silencer in his bedside drawer?
    It’s loaded with 147 grain Hollow points because I figure if I ever have to shoot my gun in my house it’s going to be extremely loud.
