    CRAIG, Colo. -- A 60-year-old Moffat County man was killed during a home invasion shootout in Craig -- except he was the one who was doing the breaking in with a gun.

    Police were dispatched to a home in the 800 block of Washington Street at about 5:40 p.m. on Sunday on a report of a home invasion. The 911 dispatcher told officers that shots could be heard from inside the home.

    Officers found Mario Vigil lying on a floor outside a bedroom. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The officers then found the homeowner, 33-year-old Josh Jackson, and his 9-year-old son hiding in a bedroom.

    An investigation revealed that Jackson saw Vigil trying to break into the front door with the butt end of a rifle. Jackson grabbed a .410 shotgun and shot the intruder in the chest as he entered the home, but the shot did not stop him, police said.

    Jackson and his son ran into a back bedroom and locked the door. Jackson told his son to hide under a bed and then grabbed a 30-06 rifle and started loading it. Police said the intruder then fired two rounds from a 30.30 rifle through the closed bedroom door.

    Jackson yelled at him to leave and fired one round from his weapon through the bedroom door into the hallway. The intruder fired two more rounds and then began busting open the bedroom door, police said.

    At that point Jackson fired another round which apparently struck the intruder in the right hip area. The door remained closed and the Jackson and his son stayed in the bedroom until officers arrived.

    Police determined that earlier in the evening, Vigil was involved in a domestic violence case with Jackson's mother. Vigil had fired one round at the girlfriend and made threats to hurt her family, including killing her son and her 9-year-old grandson.

    An initial investigation revealed the shooting was justifiable and was in self defense, police said.

    so was the death caused by the 410 round, or the 3006 to the hip?

    Good question.. may of bled out from the 30-06 :dunno: Dunno if I'de want to use a .410 for home defense, maybe if its out of a SAIGA, but 30-06 is a bit overkill for home defense.

    a 30-06 soft point has great expansion on a deer, I can tell you that much..

    overpenetration is a concern with home defense though.. but he probably didnt have it as a primary home defense gun, but it sure came in handy

    How does a 60 year old take a shot to the chest, and keep moving? So, I guess the home-owner won't be charged with anything.

    Imagine the trauma to the hip area caused by a 30-06 round hitting the pelvis. Damage inc.

    This should be posted in the main forum. I wonder what the anti-gun fucks would say about this.

    id imagine it would fragment pretty good after going through a door and hitting someones hip bone. Theres a lot of bone in that area.

    But if may not have, talk about massive damage.

    I used to keep my shotgun loaded with birdshot because I worried about penetration through drywall incase I miss. I don't want to be responsible for injuring a family member. After I heard about that Cheney thing, I switched to 00 buckshot. I'll save the birdshot for paper.

    The same way a 90 year old guy takes a shot to the face from Dick Cheney's shotgun and laughs about it the next day. He probably didn't have any sort of defensive loads in the shotgun.
