http://www.kxxv.com/story/31783010/police-homeowner-hits-burglar-in-face-with-6-foot-construction-level


Gary says that’s when his natural instinct of self-defense kicked in.

And he grabbed a tool that’s never lead him wrong, his 6 foot construction level.

Just one hit to the mouth kept this burglar from causing any more harm until police arrived.

what a level headed idea.

Leveled him with one blow.

Keeping people on the straight and narrow, one whack at a time.

Thief, I'm gonna level with you!

OP's screenname is apropos.

A 6" Colt would have been a better tool.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:17:11 PM EDT
Did he square up before swinging?

Good for the homeowner, but get a gun. Learn how to use it and carry it..especially when a situation like this happens. What if it had been multiple scum with guns?
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:18:45 PM EDT
Well, that's just plumb cool!

That's when you grab the nail gun.

Now he has to make sure it is still straight and the bubbles aren't tweaked. Bummer

Always lock the door from the garage into the house!!
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:21:39 PM EDT
Hopefully he sues the crim for the damage to the level, finding a good 6ft level is a challenge these days!

Don't leave tools out where they can be used to pry open that door...or be used as a weapon against you.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:28:02 PM EDT
Brought force with a balance, did he.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:31:56 PM EDT
That's just plane lucky.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:33:10 PM EDT
That is one way to level the playing field.

Most definitely.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:59:05 PM EDT
That's cool and all, I just prefer a stand-off weapon. Like a .357

I see it.

Happened here in Lubbock. Figures.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 5:20:19 PM EDT
Hope the level is ok and still accurate. I do not want him hanging picture frames crooked for his wife now.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 5:23:21 PM EDT
Hopefully, the full weight of law will be leveled against him.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 5:23:44 PM EDT
Real construction guy would have had a Stabila.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 5:38:32 PM EDT
Gave it his level best.

Okay Grammar Nazis, shouldn't that be led?

When you are attacked, you have to survey the situation, then act accordingly.

Probably won't want to use it anymore. Depending on how hard he hit him and what it landed on.
