Never read of many self defense situations that involved rifles. I am glad the owners were not harmed by the invaders.

According to other posts, that homeowner is now deaf, and may try to sue the family of the henchman for damage to his hearing.

A policeman at the scene made a note of an MSPAINT drawing displayed on the homeowners laptop during crime scene investigation.

Ok, that was MUCH better than the usual "Wonder what his SN was?"

Sounds like a good shoot. I, too, wonder what kind of rifle it was. Could've been anything from a hunting rifle, to a milsurp bolt-action, to an AK/SKS or Garand, or an AR15.

could have been a .22 rifle for all we know.

I bet the rifle was "high powered."

True.

A pistol is still plenty loud enough to cause permanent hearing damage. If firing rifles indoors was so much more hazardous than doing the same with pistols and shotguns, LE/MIL wouldn't be using SBR's for CQB...

Probably one of dem high-powered automatic assualt rifles with that shoulder thing that goes up that is only designed to kill by firing from the hip and sprays bullets randomly into playgrounds and schools. At least that's what they'd call it if it was a bad shoot.

If it were a military type rifle it would have been described as such. Either, high powered, assault rifle, military type, law enforcement type, AK-47, M-16, or street sweeper. Since the media failed to mention this fact, the only rifle that would fit the category would be a bolt action .22, or possibly a 10/22 as a stretch.

Perhaps the media doesn't know what type of rifle was used because LE didn't feel a need to release that information ? If it were a bad shoot, the details of the weapon used would be present.

Unless, you know, the media doesn't want to report positive use of such firearms.

Good point.

An important point is missing, LE forgot to tell the public to never confront an attacker.
That dead disadvanteged man was most likely just looking for ice cream, and that evil oppressive property owner shot him.

I like AR15's so I'm sure it was an AR15. I reject your reality and submit my own.

Wonder why he did not dile 911 and wait for the police.
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 8:50:58 PM EST
I think he used a GAU-8A.........

Anyone care to make a wager?
