    Good shot, Derek. Not many people could have made it under those circumstances. Hope you have a full recovery.

    Guess you’re one”lucky” guy!!! Too dark to see who the attacker was but yet ONE shot and it hit him in the head. Good Shot! Maybe they should hire you to teach the police/bdf a few things.
