    Default Armed Citizen Aids Police in Shootout

    http://fishgame.com/deblog.php?p=574 VIDEO INTERVIEW BEHIND LINK

    Earlier this week in Brownwood, TX an armed citizen put his life on the line to stop a bad guy from shooting a police officer.

    The crazy murderer killed two folks and dogs after arguing over dog poop in his yard. Police arrived and a shootout ensued.

    Vic Stacy, a self taught marksman, saw the officer’s predicament and came to his aid with a few well placed 165 yard pistol shots.

    Vic displayed a great feat of marksmanship under intense life threatening pressure at a great distance.

    Excellent work Vic. Let me know your magnum load of choice and the next box of ammo is on me.

    Im not easily impressed by marksmanship, but 165 is a hell of a shot with any pistol regardless. I don't see any mention of caliber but id wager that it was a .357 at that distance. Needless to say, i'd love to have this old bird as a neighbor, he has the exact attitude that someone carrying a firearm should have.

    edit: i guessed right, heres a more comprehensive report if im not mistaken http://www.brownwoodnews.com/index.p...news&Itemid=58

    I'm assuming that the antagonist of the story was using illegal firearms?


    Or is this story anti-gun?

    You may not be aware of this, but hitting a man sized target with virtually any stocked rifle is childs play at 200 yards or less.

    Except it was 165 yard PISTOL shots, which would make it extremely difficult.

    that doesnt change my point, if the guy with the rifle doesnt see you, you're not in any danger.
