Your first clue was the sound of the dogs and cats going crazy. You go downstairs and see a strange car and several police cars on your driveway. You wave, and they say they are searching for a fugitive. You go back inside, grab your handgun, and carefully look through your house from top to bottom. You find a stranger huddled in the back corner of your basement furnace room. You order him to leave. After the intruder is grabbed by the police, you follow the intruder outside, lay down your pistol, and lie on the ground.
Your intruder is charged with burglary, theft, drug possession, reckless driving and evading officers. The police found methamphetamine in the stolen car in your driveway.
You’re a 58 year old math professor and competitive shooter. When a local reporter called you up, and you thanked the Western Montana Fish and Game Association and the Deer Creek Shooting Range for letting you compete and train.
Your girlfriend and your 8 month old child are out for a stroll. You see several men fighting across the street. It sounds serious, so you and your girlfriend pull out your cell phones and take video. One of the combatants runs across the street and hits you and then your girlfriend even though she is carrying a child. You all back away. The attacker follows you. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker. Now he stops.
There are lots of witnesses. You put your gun down and wait for the police.
It is almost 11 in the morning. You’re working in the back room of your uncle’s shop. There are a number of customers in the store when two men walk in. They say they want to look at chains and rings. When the other customers leave, one of the men pulls a knife and tries to stab your uncle. You grab the gun they keep in the back room, and run into the store. The robbers see your gun and run. You and the other store employees chase the robbers from the store.
A man knocks on the door of your hotel room. You open the door and he pushes his way inside. The intruder says to give him your money. You say you don’t have any. He argues, but steps outside. There, he draws a gun and points it at another stranger and demands the stranger’s money. You’re armed. You draw your gun and shoot the attacker.
You call police and stay in your room until they arrive.
