This case actually occurred in 2006, but it has taken six years for details to finally come out. Despite (or rather, because of) what positive publicity this is for responsible gun owners, there are very few stories or articles about this incident. For those keeping track at home and like to say that ordinary citizens aren't trained with firearms and are more likely to hit everything except for what they're trying to hit in a stressful situation, this guy was five for five.
