supernovaNole Posted January 16, 2008 Share Posted January 16, 2008 My Benelli Supernova Pump Tactical came in handy this past weekend... Two men broke into my townhome at approximately 12:30am early Monday morning. I was out of town but my girlfriend was home upstairs watching tv. She heard noises and then two men talking downstairs. She called 911 immediately. The men turned on lights downstairs and were looking around. They must have heard her moving around upstairs because she heard them say "I think someone is upstairs... go up there and check it out." The upstairs hallway light came on and my girlfriend heard footsteps coming up the stairs. Fortunately she had retrieved my supernova pump tactical and yelled "I have a shotgun and I know how to use it. Get the F--k out of my house" She then cocked the shotgun. Upon hearing the shotgun cock the burglars proceeded to run from the premises. Of note, it took the police 30 minutes to arrive from the time she called them. I live in Sandy Springs which is a suburb of Atlanta 1/2 mile outside the perimeter on the North side. It is considered a safe area and they still took that long. I hate to think of what would have happened had she not had the means to defend herself. So for all those people who ask "why do you need a gun?" Here is your answer. I would always say so I have it in case I need it. I just never thought I would need it. Ironically my girlfriend comes from an anti-gun family and has always been afraid of my guns. I would always try to teach her how to load them and be safe with them but she was always put off by it so we had a 'don't touch' policy for her. Fortunately she had paid enough attention that she knew how to load the shotgun and 'shuck' it. Just that sound alone was enough thankfully. I'm also glad I got a pump shotgun instead of an automatic as I was debating the choice when I purchased my gun last year. She is still pretty freaked out, as am I, but it could have been much worse. Be safe everyone and I hope this never happens to you or someone you love. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
