California Woman Shoots Home Invader Armed With Hammer

Timothy Meads
A woman from Bakersfield, Calif. practiced her Second Amendment rights last week and defended her family and property shooting a home invader who apparently was threatening her with a hammer.

According to 23 ABC, Andrew Oldham, was allegedly stalking the woman and mother and entered her property Wednesday morning. Despite being asked to leave and told the cops had already been called, Oldham refused to leave her house. The woman, who family members confirmed knew the intruder, then threatened to shoot the suspect.

Still, the man did not leave. Finally, the victim pulled the trigger and subsequently shot the man. At around 8:15 am, the police arrived and found him with “moderate injuries” and armed with a hammer. He was transported to a local hospital. Once he is medically cleared, he will be “charged with robbery, burglary, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon, according to KCSO officials.”

FBI agent shoots, kills man at ABQ brewery

By Matthew Reisen
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A homicide investigation is underway after an FBI agent fatally shot a man involved in a domestic dispute at a northeast Albuquerque brewery late Saturday, according to the police.

Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik did not say if the agent was fired upon first or whether other agents were present. No one was in custody or charged with a crime.

Drobik said that around 8 p.m. a woman called police to report she was being stalked, and she soon showed up at Nexus Brewery, off the Interstate 25 frontage road just north of Montgomery.

He said the man followed the woman inside the brewery and pulled out a gun. At least one FBI agent, who was off duty at the time, was inside the brewery and opened fire on the man, who died at the hospital.

“The agent saw that and stopped his actions, basically,” Drobik said. “These guys were off duty so we’re treating it as a homicide investigation.”

TWRA: Carter County man shoots bear after it reportedly charged him

By: Curtis Carden
CARTER COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officials are investigating a reported bear encounter from early Saturday morning in Carter County.

TWRA Spokesperson Matt Cameron said the incident happened off Blevins Road in Roan Mountain around 12:30 a.m.

Cameron said the homeowner heard a noise outside of his house and went to investigate while carrying a 12-gauge shotgun.

When he stepped outside, a bear appeared nearby. The homeowner reportedly fired one shot in the air and a second shot in the bear’s direction to try and scare it away.

As the bear left, a second bear appeared from behind some shrubs and ran in the homeowner’s direction, Cameron said.

Did the noise sound remarkably like a bear knocking over a shit-can Hmmm? Read the rest of the article here: WJHL Channel 11

For today we have, what, one mort, one healing up with a reservation at the Gray Bar Hotel, and a couple in the wind. Not too shabby, considering the two actually belong in the wind and out of garbage cans.

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

    That is a Makarov in 9MM Makarov caliber. Fitted with aftermarket non-stock grips.

    • David says:

      The 9mm stamp is not common, usually they mark it as 9mm Makarov or 9×18 to distinguish from the European 9×19. Judging by the front strap, either a commercial gun or one whose owner invested in some custom work. Baikal, who markets Maks, also makes a Mak BB gun with similarly cut front straps, otherwise I know of no centerfire Maks with that feature.

        See below for mine.
        Very popular pistol in Europe and there are millions of them.

          Concur that they are a great little gun… sold one years ago and would not mind having it back. Never saw the 9mm MAK to be appreciably hotter than a .380, either. At the time I had mine, had to make cartridge cases by cutting 1mm off 9mm Luger cases and had to cast bullets to get projectiles. Lot better supplies of 9×18 now!

      I knew someone here would ID it. Thanks.

    “Finally, the victim pulled the trigger and subsequently shot the man.”

    Uh, someone in the LSM made a mistake. Isn’t the bad guy who gets shot always the victim?

    I appreciate the bear story.

    A hammer to a gun fight and an FBI agent in a bar that didn’t drop his weapon dancing? Who’d a thunk?

    Maybe the bears should emigrate to Chi Town. Up there, they like Da Bears….Tennessee…not so much.

  4. Brewing up trouble in a Brewery was not a good idea.
    I hope that the Guy in Tenn. was able to grin and “Bear” it when he had the Bear encounter. At least the Bear Bearly got away.

    9×18 mm Makarov.
    I have one made by Ernst Thall from East Germany in 1962. Great little gun.
    I’ve put over a thousand rounds through it and it still shoots great.
    Mine was made at the height of the Cold War in the East German factory and I just wonder if and how many people were shot in the Stasi interrogation rooms with it.
    Easy to conceal, shoots accurate and hits like a .380. Was a gift from a very good friend of mine who has since passed away of Iraq War Respiratory Syndrome….
    Thank you Schneider John, wherever you are today…
