Never come between a mama bear and her cubs, especially if she is armed.Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder
A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday. The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar. But the man eventually found the family. "The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver," Chapman told Channel 2ís Kerry Kavanaugh. The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved. "She's standing over him, and she realizes she's fired all six rounds. And the guy's telling her to quit shooting," Chapman said. The woman ran to a neighbor's home with her children. The intruder attempted to flee in his car but crashed into a wooded area and collapsed in a nearby driveway, Chapman said. Deputies arrested 32-year-old Atlanta resident Paul Slater in connection with the crime. Chapman said they found him on the ground saying, "Help me. I'm close to dying."God Bless this woman.

Get yourself some 124 grain hollow points and just use the 115 grain FMJ's for the range.

From what I can tell from reports, she placed a killing group.
My guess, the .38 was loaded with JHP. For home defence you need a +P capable .38 with an expanding bullet.
Nothing wrong with the .38, the bullet placement or the bravery, just a little tweaking on the load involved.A rejoinder, don't mess with southern women, they are not used to cowering.
When I teach my wife gun control, we use wad cutters, when range time is over, in go the high powered hollow points. Thankfully home defence isn't covered by the Gvention, not yet anyway.

He still may not live through this, and for that I think we can all be thankful.
