Chris and Tracy Cummings owe their lives to the Christmas
present Tracy gave her husband last year-a 9 mm handgun. The
Cummings were awakened about 2:00 a.m. on a Tuesday by someone
trying to kick in their front door. Cummings grabbed his handgun
just before their bedroom door was kicked in and an undetermined
number of home invaders began shooting. His wife was shot in the
shoulder as she rolled to the floor. Cummings fired back at their
assailants, emptying one magazine and starting on another. By the
time it was all over, 30 rounds had been exchanged and the suspects
fled the scene. The shots fired by the invaders came from a rifle
and a handgun, said Sgt. Mike Wilson of the Chatham County police.
"I guess they weren't expecting firepower, or for me to have a
[firearm]," said Cummings.
