Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

I’m exercising my editorial prerogative on this one to include “clubbing” with “shooting”, as Our Hero used a shotgun to send a choirboy to his justified end:

An 82-year-old Vietnam War veteran beat an armed home invader to death with the butt end of a shotgun to protect his 79-year-old wife after the invader attacked her in their home in South Carolina on Monday.

…and we’re talking ten (10!) butt-strokes.

of course, we get the prerequisite “you shouldn’t do that” warning from the fuzz:

Captain Eric Abdullah, a spokesman for the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, advised all residents to immediately contact law enforcement if they believe their home is being broken into.  “Of course, folks have the right to defend themselves if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is to call for help.”

Call for help in carting the scumbag’s corpus delicti  away, would be my advice.

If this story doesn’t put a smile on your face and bring out an “Attaboy!”, I don’t want to talk to you.


  1. Captain Abdullah? Oh well…
    I recall reading that our hero said the gun wasn’t loaded. Even in today’s economy of shortages somebody should be able to come up with a nice Mossberg 590 and a case of 00 buckshot, if only to save on the physical exertion.

  2. The only fault I can find here is that the shotgun wasn’t loaded, and that he didn’t make it impossible to identify the perp using dental records.

    Oh, and Captain Ab-DUH-lah? Kindly perform an anatomically improbable act of self copulation, have incestuous relations with your maternal parent, consume excrement, experience spontaneous combustion, expire, and descend to the Infernal region, along with your mode of equine transport. Strongly worded message to follow. I’d say some choirboy forcing entry into my home and attacking my wife constitutes danger to my life, kindly come clean up the mess I made.

  3. “…..if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is to call for help.””

    I’ll speculate here that the “home invader” was indeed calling for help thru the first 4 or 5 strokes of the butt stock…….

  4. My question is did the SGM use a vertical or horizontal butt stroke? Or probably both. I remember practicing both in Army basic.

    1. Harmony,
      That’s the huge problem with articles like this. THey do not contain details about equipment, tactics and techniques.


  5. “…if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is to call for help.”

    Oh, please. In a civilized society the proper job of the police is to show up and make sure the right person got shot.

    1. Para
      you’re right. unfortunately, too much of our society is concerned with finding out why the poor disadvantaged imbecile chose crime and blame everyone except the perpetrator.


  6. “…the best thing to do is to call for help…” because only trained professionals should be invested with the power of life and death, that they will perform when they interrupt their session at Ye Local DoNut Shoppe.
    Notice how this untrained non-professional did not endanger his wife and others while putting this mutt into his proper place (a coffin).
    Well Done, Sir!

  7. Hahahaha! I knew you’d get a chuckle (maybe even a belly laugh) out of that one. A friend of mine who lives down that way is trying to find out how far he lives from him. I’ve offered to send a couple boxes of Federal Law Enforcement Low Recoil 00-Buck his way to deliver to this fine hero.

    My favorite story of the year so far, as we close out February!

  8. Never fuck with a guy who was there when someone called out “The gooks are in the wire!”
