    The bullet bounced (ricocheted) off an armadillo, but then it went 100 yards, though a fence, a door, a recliner and into his mother-in-law....

    That is one tough armadillo!!

    The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back. According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.

    Interestingly enough, it's not stated if the bullet penetrated the armadillo...

    You are correct, but I still believe that he hit his intended target.

    He had his .45 safely tucked away in his waistband.

    Cheap arse ball ammo. Quality self defense rounds would have been much safer. People should practice more and gain a better understanding of bullet dynamics.

    And I thought you were harmless!!!! Maybe Betty was murdered and it was only made to look like an accident. Devious.
