A McKinney, Texas, doctor has his wife's quick reflexes and
.38-cal. revolver to thank for his life. Dr. and Mrs. Avery were
returning from a gun show to their rural home when the doctor
backed his car into the driveway and a small, green car pulled in.
A strange man emerged holding a rifle. He ordered Dr. Avery out of
his car and pushed him to the ground, holding the rifle to the
doctor's head. Mrs. Avery quickly drew her revolver and fired five
shots at the assailant, possibly hitting him at least once. The
gunman returned fire, hitting the Avery's vehicle several times,
then sped away in his car. Police later recovered an abandoned
green car with a bullet hole in the window and blood on the seat,
but had not apprehended the gunman.
