"I ain't playing," said an armed intruder, who also used an
expletive as he barged inside George Dickert's South Carolina home.
According to police reports, the intruder pointed a gun at Dickert,
who reached for his own gun. A fistfight ensued. "[My wife and I] do
what we have to do to make a living and some idiot decided he wanted
what I had," Dickert said. Hearing the struggle, two more men rushed
into the house and began beating on Dickert. But Dickert's son also
heard the commotion and, after seeing his father struggling with the
men, retrieved a .38-caliber pistol from a bedroom, pointed it at
his father's assailants and told them he would shoot. The thugs ran
from the home without further incident. Police apprehended four men
near Dickert's home in connection with the crime and were seeking a
fifth. Dickert says he taught his son firearm safety at a young age.
