Home Defense in Frisco

Steve Geddie, 24, of Frisco, Texas, had just gotten home from work and was sitting on the toilet when he heard his back door being smashed in. Geddie had only seconds to act. He moved from his bathroom to his bedroom, where he armed himself with a 12 gauge pistol grip Mossberg 500 shotgun that he kept under his mattress for home defense. He chambered a #1 buckshot round.

In his hallway, Geddie encountered a man wearing a red bandanna over his face. Geddie suddenly found a small revolver pointed at his chest. Geddie moved to the inside of the intruder as the intruder fired his weapon. One of two bullets struck Geddie's left shoulder. Geddie dropped his shotgun, then immediately dove after it. He came up firing at a retreating home invader. Geddie's shot flew wild, penetrating his wall with sixteen pellets. The intruder was lucky the shot was wild. "Otherwise he would have had size one buckshot all through his thighs and butt," said Geddie, "I believe that every home owner should be able to be prepared for self preservation in the event that something like this happens."

Too bad Steve didn't take that piece of shit out of commission, but I'm glad his wound wasn't worse.

Glad the guy was able to fight back. Being on the toilet is about the most vulnerable situation to be in, in my humble opinion. I don't know if I would have been able to reach a loaded gun in time if I was in that situation. I have kids in the house so all of my guns are locked up.

A good thing about this article is that it dispels the myth that a shotgun does not have to be aimed. I've heard a lot of people say shotguns are perfect for home defense because you don't have to aim, you'll hit them by pointing in the general area. While I agree a shotgun is a great tool for home defense, you still have to practice and you still have to tame aim.

Too bad he missed, although given the circumstance I can't blame him for his aim being a little off...

shooting at a fleeing assailant is usually a big no-no... but if i'd already taken a bullet from said assailant, i don't know that i'd hold fire myself, either. i'm not sure how to feel about this, whether it's a good thing his buckshot missed or not. had it been me, i could only hope to have done even as well --- and hope more that i wouldn't drop the shotgun.

Moved towards the intruder's non-gun side, in other words, his left, while closing the distance, to avoid being shot in the chest.

Pistol grips on a shotgun make it very hard to aim. He should have left the stock on.

He is too young to own a gun. Nobody should own guns, expecially youngsters.
