Police say a club-wielding intruder entered a home's unlocked front door while the residents were inside. He snuck down a hallway, entered a bedroom and began stealing a coin collection. The homeowner heard the ruckus and accosted the intruder, who merely shouted threats and continued taking the coins. The homeowner left the room and returned with a handgun, firing a shot at the intruder. The suspect fled the property, scattering coins as he ran. He was being sought by police. (The Island Packet, Hilton Head, SC, 9/23/09)

Early one morning, a pregnant woman had no idea she would be targeted by a young adult in the midst of a burglary spree. Police say the suspect had already burglarized several cars and homes when he entered the woman's residence in the early morning hours. She awoke and confronted him with a shotgun, prompting him to draw a handgun. Rather than firing a shot, the pregnant woman explained to the intruder that her gun was larger. He put his gun away and waited for the police. (Press-Register, Mobile AL, 9/11/09)

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

When two men broke into a home around two in the morning, the 47-year-old homeowner was ready for them. The resident, who has been burglarized twice a month, spotted the suspects and called out to them. The two intruders charged him, prompting the homeowner to pull a .357-caliber magnum and fire once, causing the suspects to escape through a sliding glass door. After following a trail of blood into nearby woods, police were unable to find the two men, but continue in their search. (Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Columbus, GA, 9/10/2009)

From the Armed Citizen Archive:

December 1959: The fifth time the same bandit robbed William Kuroki, manager of a Denver pharmacy, the gunman forced Kuroki, a clerk, and a customer into a stock room and started off with his bag of loot to add to the $3600 taken in the previous robberies. After closing the stock room door, the bandit decided to take one last look at his victims. Kuroki had drawn a .38 cal. revolver from his back pocket and when the door opened, he killed the robber with 2 shots. (Rocky Mountain News, Denver, CO)
