Poor girl. On the other hand, in what country would you survive seven bullets fired by a trained military? :stir:

Wow he must be a really bad shot, hope she is OK.
I have had my heart broken on many occasions but always just walked away.
Some guys seem to have a greater sense of ownership or to much of a coward to go through the pain.
Or could it just be pride?

Good news, the woman has survived the attack.

Colonel Hour Mengvang, district police chief, said Maj Chamnan will be sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court today. He is accused of attempted murder and could face between 10 to 15 years in jail if convicted. The victim is still receiving treatment at Preah Kossamak hospital.

I have very little experience with guns, especially pistols, but they say those Chinese Makarov copies are total garbage. The ones still around are likely very old by now too. It's a traffic cop type of gun, or just used because it is relatively small and easily concealed.
