Meghan Brown killed attacker with her pink .38

TIERRA VERDE — “Meghan Brown had fired her pink .38-caliber handgun only inside a shooting range. Even there, she said, she wasn’t very good.

The 2009 Miss Tierra Verde, 25 and a slender brunet, had trouble pulling back the trigger. When she did manage, she said she almost never hit the target.

That Saturday was different.

A man barged into her home, attacking her and beating her fiance … She trained it on the man, following his movements as he tussled with her fiance.

She saw an opening. She pulled the trigger. Pop. Pop. Pop. Pop.

Albert F. Hill, 42, never got up.”

“I’m glad it was me,” Brown said. “Not everybody else is that prepared, you know what I mean. Not everybody else is walking around with a loaded .38.”

Backup Gun: Smith and Wesson M&P340

Tactical Wire just wrote a a review of the Smith and Wesson revolver as a good choice for a backup carry gun.

A backup gun to complement the excellent M&P auto pistols and M&P15 carbines, the M&P340 is a Scandium frame super-light Magnum revolver. I’d avoided flyweight Magnums before this one. The steel small-frame guns got to be too much for me to shoot with any regularity.
