    ...imo, considering the urgency of the situation the head shot was luck, training is always aim for center mass....

    "...WSAV reported that the woman had taken training for a concealed carry license, a fact which Sheriff Clark seized on when speaking to reporters: “If there is no other thing that we pull out of this today, I want to hammer that home of how this lady saved her life because she took half a day out of her life and went and got training. She saved her life and stopped the bad guy.”..."

    The media really hates to report on these incidents.

    Interesting that she was confident enough to take the head shot. I wonder if she came up from behind him. He got what he deserved...

    It's called tax payer relief when that happens.

    She might have only been 4-5 ft away. Hard to miss from that distance.

    I'm not sure. We were always trained to shoot center mass, but when I go to the pistol range I usually go for head shots (....:Unsure.....on targets).

    depends on how much training a person has - if they get too nervous - they could easily miss.

    This is what gets me about these TV shows where a character gets a sidearm - but there is never any training involved and
    then something drastic happens.

    True. Or maybe she hid behind a door and when he walked through, she put the gun against his head and pulled the trigger.

    But we're just guessing. All we know for sure is he died of a single shot to the head.

    Well done, Lady.

    Looks like he would’ve been better off staying in prison. Instead, everybody else is better off.
