Hatchet Wielding Home Invader Stopped by Resident
Some people may not be aware, but the minimum distance you should ever let anyone get to you in a life or death situation is approximately 7 yards when defending yourself with a gun. A person can cross that distance in literally about a second and can really tear you up if they have an edged weapon. Do not EVER let an assailant get closer than that.
