Barbara Holland closed her used car lot for the day and drove home.
She had checked to make sure the handgun she has carried since 1992
was loaded after a strange encounter at the car lot left her feeling
uneasy. Holland pulled the car into the driveway and, as she entered
her side door, Holland bent down to retrieve something she had
dropped. Suddenly a man armed with a gun came rushing at her.
Holland tried to slam her door on him, but the man shoved the door
open and Holland fell back on her landing. Lying on her back,
Holland snatched her pistol from its holster, ready to protect
herself and her 15-year-old daughter who was home at the time. Her
assailant's glare changed. "He looked surprised," she says. Holland
recalls firing three times, but authorities later confirmed six
shots. Police identified Holland's attacker, who died at the scene,
as an ex-con named Clabe Hunt.
