The owner of the Quick Time Liquor Market fought back when Armand Isaac, 21, and Leonard Higgins Jr., 20, entered the store and attempted an armed robbery. As the store owner and Higgins struggled, Isaac fired a shot at the owner barely missing his head. The owner then grabbed a pistol and shot Higgins twice, causing the men to quickly flee. Both men were later arrested at a local hospital as they sought medical treatment for Higgins’ gunshot wounds. (The Telegraph, Alton, IL, 1/07/12)

(The following account did not appear in the print version of American Rifleman.)

A California homeowner was at home one afternoon when suddenly he heard noises emerging from the lower level of his house. He grabbed a gun and went to investigate, soon after discovering a woman in his living room rummaging through his things. He told her to drop everything, and held her at gunpoint and dialed 9-1-1. The woman tried to flee but was caught and arrested by the authorities. (Daily Republic, Fairfield, CA, 02/15/12)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

April 1980: When 89-year-old Fred Freen saw a man leaving one of his vacant San Antonio, Tex., rental houses, he called the police, found his pistol and confronted the intruder, who started toward him in a threatening manner. When his warnings to halt were ignored, Green fired a shot near the would-be burglar's legs and thus pursuaded him to wait peaceably until police arrived. (The Daily News, Amarillo, Tex. 1/26)
