Galveston woman bests intruder with paintball gun
A Galveston woman used a paintball gun to detain an intruder long enough Friday for police to arrest him, according to the Galveston County Daily News.When officers arrived about 10:30 a.m., they heard the sound of the paint ball impacts and found the man inside covered with yellow paint, the Daily News reported.
So basically she was shooting him *as* the cops pulled up. Cool. Now, while a paintball gun isn't my first (or tenth) choice for a defensive arm, any weapon is better than nothing. Paintballs are painful (ask me about SCI-FI's bachelor party sometime...), and also provide positive identification of the suspect should they sprint off. Now, this woman is lucky that the criminal in question didn't have a weapon of his own, but kudos to her for defending her home with any means available.
I almost pity that poor SOB when he hits prison and they find out he was taken down with a paintball marker...
That is all.
