    AND for pistol competition and practice!

    “He’s always been a marksman,” the man's wife told Jacksonville.com. “He shoots in competitions, but this is the first time he’s ever killed anyone and I don’t know how he’ll handle that.”

    When the intruder kicked open the door leading up from the basement, Jones fired a single shot.
    “He kicked the door and as soon as he got inside, it was all over,” Jones told WLWT-TV.
    “I was hoping another one would come up – I aimed right for his heart,” Jones, who served in the U.S. Army Air Forces from 1941 through 1946,
