Michelle Cornelson, owner of the Coeur D’Alene, ID “Sunshine Expresso” got a nice Christmas gift from her husband – a Kel Tec 9mm pistol. We’ve seen that piece before at KenNelson.com….
Cornelson quickly whipped out her 9 mm Kel-Tec firearm — a Christmas present from her husband — scaring the teen off before calling police.
I don’t know the details of why she didn’t shoot him. Using a gun to scare rather than shoot can be trouble, especially when the opponent is armed. If the issue was lack of comfort with the new pistol, then competitive shooting in IDPA or USPSA might have helped her get an accurate shot or two off and Idaho’s future would have been more secure from this teenager’s likely future crimes. There are IDPA and USPSA clubs in Spokane, a reasonable drive west of Coeur D’Alene (which by the way is about as hard to spell as Albuquerque) .
Anyway, well done Mrs Cornelson, let’s hope that this is the last time that Kel-Tec has to be whipped out (pun intended) (-:
