Don't Underestimate That Senior Citizen!
66 year old Texan Vic Stacy put 5 shots of .357 magnum revolver rounds into a killer armed with a scoped 30-30 carbine who had already killed two neighbors and their dogs. Police had arrived on the scene but were unable to get a clear shot at shooter Charles Robert Conner with their AR-15 sporting rifles. From 165 yards away Conner's neighbor Vic Stacy had a clear view of the shooter, fired his first shot from his 5" barrel .357magnum and hit Conner in the thigh. Conner then turned his attention to Stacy, who then fired 4 more rounds into the murderous neighbor, killing him.
What, you might ask started this shooting spree? A heavily armed Conner had confronted his neighbor and the neighbor's girlfriend over their dogs pooping in his yard. Clearly a case of one man who had no business with a firearm . . . . and another man who possibly prevented additional killings of responding police officers because he did own (and practiced with) firearms.
