    No mud flaps, plasti dipped emblems, and rear bumper, Weather tech digital fit, Bed mat from tractor supply. Pioneer 4400BH head unit. B.A.M.F bed rail tie downs. AVS vent visors.
    also this is why we should not ban high cap mags. even thou she had a revolver some people may have a glock or XD or something. What if there was 2 bad guys and she had a xd or glock and shot one guy more than 6 times she may not be able to shoot the other guy.

    Also caliber of a gun DOES play a roll in how many times you may have to shoot someone and how bad there injuries will be. For instance a 45 as a hell of a lot more knock down power and energy than say a 9mm and many other hand gun calibers. a 45 will also put a lot bigger hole and cause more damage than a 9mm. or hell even a .40.

    ...that's just it, ...there is no definitive answer, ...the number of variables is astounding, ...that's why folks w/ training understand that:

    1) "stopping power" is pretty much B.S. in the general sense
    2) aim for center-mass or the "occular cavity" (eyes, nose area)
    3) terminal ballistics is not linear science...

    ...i like "capacity", ...i'd rather have more rounds than i "think" i'll need, than vice-versa ;)

    I doubt he took 5 bullets to the head and neck. Probably had 5 separate wounds due to fragmentation.

    Still, good on mama! Perfect example of using a firearm to defend your family.

    I can tell you if I put 5 rounds with my .45 and ammo that I carry into your head you will not be walking out of the house.

    Good for this mom. I'd make and give her a trophy I I lives close to her. :)
