“Police say 10-year-old boy fought off mother's attacker with BB gun”
Police said Newman tried to get back into the home through an unlocked window, and as the victim tried to shut the window, Newman grabbed her arm.
When the woman couldnt break Newmans grip, her son came into the room with a pump-action BB rifle, police said.
Police said once Newman saw the rifle, he made threats to kill both the victim and her son.
If it was a pump action one it was probably a Daisy 25. I guarantee that would hurt. When I was a kid my best friend had one and I had a lesser Daisy.
We used to have air rifle wars in which we would basically play cowboys and Indians with our air rifles. I was at a severe disadvantage and remember even at 25 yards or so, that model 25 would really hurt.
One thing that we were fairly smart about is we would wear our swim goggles to protect our eyes.
