SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -Armed with a gun and ready to shoot, a Shawnee woman defended her home as man broke down her door. It happened in broad daylight and she didn't back down.
Pam Loman and her husband, James, say they've lived on Homer Lane in Shawnee for over 10 years and have never had any problems. But early Friday afternoon, while Pam was home alone, she quickly figured out, three men outside her home were up to no good.
"I still feel queasy sick at my stomach, a little shaky, a little nervous," Pam said.
Pam says the knocking got harder, to just outright banging.
"So my instinct was to go get a gun. I don't know why, I never in my life felt like I needed to go get a gun," Pam said.
She stood near her kitchen, just steps away from the front door, with both hands on her .32-caliber pistol.
And just all of a sudden, with one kick, he knock the door completely in. The frame came flying down. Things came flying everywhere," Pam recalled. "And he saw that I had the gun, and he grabbed the door handle and pulled the door shut."

She needs to work on her reaction time. She should have been able to get a shot off before he closed the door.
Oh great. Now Biden and Feinstein can say this proves you can have a gun, but you don't need ammunition.
Good thing she had a gun or she’s likely not have lived to tell of it.
This is why a well trained dog is an asset.They won’t freeze up or hesitate.
I’m sure this will be on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and the front pages of the NYT, LAT, etc,etc,etc.
3 potential assailants against a .32 - probably a revolver. Good thing she intercepted them before entering or she may have been in some trouble.
Shouldn't she just let them know someone is at home?
The left wants to prevent people from defending themselves and their property. The left wants the crook to waltz right in and take what is “rightfully” his from those “evil oppressors”
Some will knock to see if anyone is home and then break in. Or they may realize its a woman and come in anyway.
Look what they’ve done in England. Its basically illegal to defend yourself there.
A few shots each to stop the threat + a few misses > 10 rounds.
A shotgun would be better. A pistol & AR-15 are both good for
home defense. I think the shotgun has a slight lead.
A BIT OF HISTORY It turns out that Barack Obama, when he was in the Illinois State Senate, opposed legislation that would have allowed a citizen to fire a handgun in defense of his life in his own home. Hmm. The bill passed anyway, without his support.
I had to lol at that....it has a definite ring of truth to it.
Just what I’ve always thought, every woman needs one good man in the home, LOL.
There is just no fixing stupid.
Just recently in Corpus Christi, Tx a 15 year old girl let a stange man into her apartment who asked to use the bathroom and was raped.
Didn’t she have the brains to know not to do this?
Where was her mother?
Didn’t her mother teach her any better??
Smith, or Wesson?
I agree, and for several reasons.
Wouldn't want to hear one go off in an enclosed house though....ouch!
