Yes she did. That doesn't alter the fact, though, that the perp was still mobile after being shot 5 times. Had there been a second perp, the lady might have been in deep trouble. I won't say she needs more range time. Her accuracy was great. But she really does need to upgrade the ammo. Hollowpoints, at the very least. And it might not have hurt to go to a semi-auto with a bigger magazine capacity.
MIGHT have been? I'd say it would've been darn likely.
Literally every story I read, where the good guy (gal) shoots, the 2nd perp always runs away. They don't volunteer for lead duty.
Some folks just don’t ‘grok’ a semi-auto, but do just fine with a revolver. Concur on the ammo upgrade.
