    Not Self Defense Advice Fridays: Didn't Axe Nicely


    Ax-Wielding Woman Chases Burglar: "I Hit What I Aim For"

    The woman awoke to find a man trying to steal her watch right off her arm, then reached for her ax that she keeps near her bed




    A burglar was scared off early Saturday morning when a skilled ax-thrower grabbed the weapon she keeps next to her bed after she felt the man trying to remove her watch from her wrist as she was sleeping.

    The burglar, who broke in through a window, had already ransacked other rooms before entering the bedroom. The homeowner awoke Saturday at about 8 a.m. when she felt someone touching her wrist.

    "I sat up and screamed," said Robin Irvine. "He was taking my watch off."

    That's when Irvine reached down and grabbed her bed-side ax, which leans against a small table, and took aim. Wearing her underwear and T-shirt and harboring no reservations about unleashing the ax, she chased the man down the hall.

    "I would’ve gotten him right in the spine or the back of his head," she said. "I hit what I aim for."

    Lucky for the perp, he was only arrested!

    Any article that contains the words "bed-side ax" is cool by me.

    Looks like a nice old hewing axe.
