Score 1 for the "good guys"! This old timer had been victimized too many times. I'm glad he won the shoot-out.

Good for him! He's still sharp and quick at the trigger when it comes to someone breaking in! I commend anyone who takes the law into their own hands on their own property when there is a break-in by an intruder. We should be able to defend ourselves.
