.38 revolver

A man broke into the Richmond, Va., home of Brodus Cheatham, crept into the bedroom and demanded cash.

Even though Cheatham complied with the demand, the thief punched him in the face.

At that, Cheatham grabbed a .38 cal. revolver from under the bed and fired, seriously wounding his attacker, who fled but was later arrested by police.
