postheadericon Homeowner Holds Burglar At Gunpoint For Free Ride To Jail

GREENWOOD, IN — A man is now in jail after breaking into someone else’s home and picking the wrong house, according to WIBC. Not only did he pick the wrong house to attempt to rob — a gun owner’s — he also had a really, really weird excuse for why he was there.

According to local news:

Greenwood Police say Kyler Thompson, 46, had entered a home in the 800 block of N. Madison Ave. around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. A woman in the home said she and her husband woke up to the sound of the breaking glass in another room. That’s when officers say the man grabbed a gun and found Thompson in a spare bedroom. Investigators say the homeowner held Thompson at gunpoint until police arrived to take him to jail.

According to officers, Thompson (said) he had been next door and was trying to stop a friend of his from entering the home. But investigators say Thompson’s friend was never found or identified.

Police say they found several items from inside the home belonging to the couple laying in the yard.

Thompson is in the Johnson County Jail without bond. Officers say he also has a felony arrest warrant in Marion County for possession of a firearm.

Seems legit.

Seriously, who on earth would think to use that excuse?

Even if he had gone over to prevent some other friend from doing wrong, what on earth is he doing in the house?

It’s amazing what people think other folks will believe.

It is doubtful that Thompson will get away with that excuse in court, and his felony arrest warrant is not likely to do him any favors. Hopefully, the man will not be able to endanger society for a long, long time.

postheadericon My First Ride With Appendix Carry, Part 1

I’ve always carried around the 4 o’clock position, IWB. It’s been that way since nearly the beginning. Every time we get a new holster to review, it’s distributed to a writer. Sometimes it’s me, sometimes it’s not. I decided to do my first review of an appendix carry holster, and it’s also my first time truly carrying in that fashion.

Why have I never done it before? It’s not because I don’t like it, it’s really because I find myself driving a lot. It’s uncomfortable for me while sitting in the car, so that’s why IWB around 4 is my preferred method (among many other reasons).

The holster is from a company called Accelerated Solutions, and they make some great products. This isn’t the review of the holster… just pointing that out. That’ll be out in the coming weeks.

I’m a small guy, and a gun up front –even a small one– takes up a good portion of the area. It’s comfortable, but it’s sometimes difficult to not print with just a t-shirt on. After all it’s almost summer, and I won’t be walking around in a jacket.

I spent nearly a decade working in banking. I was on my feet a lot and could see appendix carry being a solid option in that environment. The employer probably wouldn’t have liked it, but concealed means…

It’s just that dang sitting… I’ll be back in a few weeks with some more thoughts.
