    It'll be interesting to se how this goes down. There's virtually no age difference and the attacker didn't pull a weapon until after he was wounded. I hope this goes in favor of the property owner.

    I would assume after being thrown to the ground and attacked the property owner felt his life was in danger. The attacker doesn't need to use a weapon to make you feel your life is treatened.

    Good for the CHL owner, bad move from the other guy.
    He got what he deserved IMO, instant karma for his attempted assault.

    Good reason to carry when dealing with people you meet via eBay, Craig's list, want ads and such. Never know what their real motives are. And if your a buyer, they can assume with 100% certainty that you'll be carrying cash. A few months back I saw two guys at McDonalds sitting at the table by the front door. One guy had some gold/silver, and the other had a scale. It was obvious that the one was buying some scrap gold/silver from the other. Doing so in a busy place like McDonalds also helps deter becoming a victim, but can have the downside that every person who passes by can see what your doing.

    Never go alone and make sure both of you are carrying.

    A very interesting case in the use of deadly force. I hope we can learn the outcome.
