Don't know if it's already been posted or not, but received this via freepmail and thought it should be breaking news material.
Whoa, she’s good! Her daddy’s bringing her up right.
His wife needs a shotgun? What happened to all the Secret Service agents?
joe biden is the dumbest we’ve ever had fpr vp. he is a sorry excuse for a politician.
i hope his wife never has to be in a postion to take this idiot’s advice.
My advise to his wife instead of aiming at the perp aim it at him
That is the same reaction that I always have when viewing these types of videos. Kind of good fun to watch, but sad that people are making their women feel like they are incapable of defending themselves. I want my wife to feel confident in her ability to defend herself. After a good deal of training she does.
She weighs right around 100 lbs.; She has been victimized by violent criminals in the past and is determined not to let it happen ever again. She takes a concealed pistol with her much of the time.
She has shot every gun we own and shows no apperant fear of recoil. This includings our 12 guage shot guns, so called “assault rifles” and also full powered battle rifles both bolt action and semi-auto. She uses a proper stance and a little shoulder padding. She enjoys shooting the bigger guns at the range. My goal has always been for her to have the proper respect for the weapons but to have fun while shooting them.
She is a very capable shooter; she has a number of options if she felt threatened at home. Her standard plan is to take cover in the bedroom and shoot any bad guys who get near her position. Her favorite rifle is still her trusty 30 carbine and would probably be her weapon of choice. Of course she has other choices with lasers and lights, but she would rather not reveal her position.
With the 30 carbine round there would not be a lot of over-penetration through our walls in the unlikely event that she missed... We live on an acre so the neighbors aren't real close anyway but that should still be a consideration. As far as stopping power... a 125 grain .357 mag clocks around 1400 fps or so from a pistol for approximately 550 ft. lbs. of force. The .30 Carbine shoots a 110 grain projectile at around 2,000 fps for approximately 967 ft. lbs. of force. Even Dirty Harry's weapon of choice the 44 mag only puts out approximately 1200 ft. lbs. of force when fired from a pistol.
I think that it is a good weapon for a woman who practices and has taken a defensive position inside of her home. I believe that my wife would act without hesitation and fire accurately. To give it a little better knock down power... I have assembled a couple batches of hollow points for her. We have spent some time at the range working on the recipe. They cycle fine and should expand and fragment when hitting their target. There is a good article about the 30 carbine and those types of reloads at: http://www.humanevents.com/2012/01/17/the-30-carbinenot-the-wussy-you-think/
Good going!! :-)
