Jimmy Foster was returning home when he found multiple suspects loading his property into a car outside. After Foster exited his vehicle, the burglars got in their car and rammed Foster's vehicle before driving toward him. Foster fired several shots at the vehicle striking one of the tires and causing the burglars to flee. Police were called and a search involving K-9 units and a helicopter led to the arrest of the three burglars. Foster was reportedly not injured during the burglary.

A pregnant Texas woman, who claims to have been anti-gun before the incident, was home alone when she heard someone banging loudly on her front door. She didn't answer the door. While the first suspect was banging on the front door a second was breaking in through the back door. The woman grabbed her husband's .40 S&W handgun and called 911. When the intruders saw she was armed they fled to their car. The woman opened fire on the truck as they were getting in. The suspects were arrested in a nearby home after a standoff with police.

August 1969: Two men entered the grocery of E.T. Hunter, 77, Ormond Beach, Fla. One asked for cigarettes. As Hunter turned around, the other pointed a pistol at his head and demanded cash. When Hunter grabbed for the pistol, the bandit hit him over the head with it. Mrs. Hunter meanwhile grabbed a gun from under the counter, fired and missed. The shots forced the bandits to flee on foot. Neighbor Charles Hines spotted them and covered one with a gun until police arrived. The other was arrested later. (Daytona Beach, Fla. Journal)
