Don't Bring A Garden Hose To A Gunfight

It's what a Charlotte man did:

A 47-year-old man called police after being nearly killed by two random thugs. He told officers that he was watering his lawn, minding his own business, when he heard a voice from behind him telling him not to move. He turned around and saw two men standing in his front yard, one of them pointing a pistol at him. The victim then sprayed the suspects with his water hose, because what else would you do? The suspect fired a shot at the victim and fell over. The shot missed and the victim also fell over as the two suspects ran away down the street. That's how you deal with annoying neighbors' dogs and Dennis the Menace, not armed assailants. Not smart – but still my hero of the week.

Now it should be noted that a garden hose would be an awesome weapon indeed in a fight with the Wicked Witch of the West, provided that the Flying Monkeys didn't become involved.
