Dr. James Birch was upstairs in his Tulsa, Okla., home when
his wife began screaming and a man with a gun appeared at his
bedroom door. Remembering a revolver he had put in a dresser drawer,
Birch grabbed it and traded shots with the intruder. In the
exchange, Birch seriously wounded his attacker and sustained two
wounds himself. The wounded youth and two accomplices fled, but
were later apprehended by police. "The gun had been in the drawer
so long, and I hadn't fired it in years," Birch said. "I was lucky
it was loaded; I wouldn't have had time to get it loaded."
