Same thing happened in my home town 15 years ago. Guy walks in and pulls a gun and begins to demand something and blam-o, store owner shoots him down. Kinda sad though to see junk like this.

I for one do not give a flying F**K. If you dare step into my shop and threaten me and mine with a weapon I will use proportionate force to deal with that threat. AS a black man I firmly believe in equal opportunity so everyone better leave me alone or suffer the consequences.


The moral of the tale is Don't be starting sH*t in anyone's shop!!! I would like to buy the owner a beer or two!

Robbing a gun store, surely even the most stupid person is going to realise that they probably will be packing and rather well trained just so they can give advice on the weapons...live by the sword and die by the sword shall we say.

The younger looking guy puts his hands up and draws the attention allowing the older guy who i'd imagine with that sort of skills is ex-military the moment he needs and the rest they say is history.

number of f---'s given = zero as if they'd probably of tried it here in blighty they'd of ended up the same way.

Of all the stores a person could try to perform an armed robbery of, a gun store seems like a hard target to crack. Not impossible by any measure, but hard. The reason I say hard, rather than impossible, is that in order to perform a heist of some sort at a gun store, advanced tactics are going to have to be deployed.

These fools walked in, laid their nuts on the table, and got them whacked off in the blink of an eye, but if they were serious about robbing that place, then they would have needed some finesse. You cannot just stroll into a gun store, brandishing firearms, and expect to get anything out of the owner other than a handful of lead. But if they had tried something a little more sophisticated, been correctly equipped, they could have made off with something. They would have needed to provide a significant distraction first of all. Smoke grenades, tear gas, something to incapacitate or blind the owner, something to make the owners first reaction be to leave the area, or at least distract them long enough that the thieves could access the counter, till, and so on, without effective fire being laid down against them. Second, they would have had to have moved like they had a clue what they were doing.

Look at the man who got shot. He walked STRAIGHT into the middle of the store. He was not moving fast and low, not using available cover or breaking line of sight in the least. Everything about the crime the robbers were attempting to commit, tells us that as criminals go, these were not at all clever, capable, or successful people in their field. A very telling feature, is that the criminals fired first, and failed to kill or hit the store owners.

Now, I should point out that it would be terrible if they had, no one wants to see an honest business person shot down about their business, in any regard what so ever. However, criminals who lack even the sophistication necessary to kill their way to what they want, which is not a particularly advanced tactic, requiring no finesse, only physical capacity... there is something about the fact that these individuals thought that their methodology was sound enough to warrant execution, which troubles me. Did these people REALLY think that walking into a gun store without even the ability to use brute force to get what they wanted, was going to avail them of a score? What were they thinking?

It should have been obvious, just from what sort of premises they were looking to hit, that this tactic would only work if they were going to be efficient and effective, moment to moment. To make it work, they would have had to have killed both the people manning the store immediately upon entering, giving the staff no time to respond to the threat what so ever, before stepping over them to get to the till, or more likely to high dollar equipment on display, after which a hasty exit would have been necessary, because little brings blue lights and service pistols faster than a robbery at a gun store.

These fellows were tactically under prepared, incompetent with their weapons... they failed before they ever entered the building.

Again, to clarify, I am glad the robbery failed. I am glad that the only death or injury here was suffered by the robber, and not the staff.

But the quality of criminals these days... I mean honestly? Its like bathing with a toaster, or washing oneself in a shower of hydrochloric acid. They may as well have headshot themselves before making the attempt!

Holy Hanna look at that pistol control!

he was on one target till neutralized then on to another.......

Looks like a Military man, and one that damn sure keeps up on his training!


That was my first impression. You noticed too that he wasn't just blazing away, he starts to fire a couple of times but can't get a clear shot or the back stop's not certain and he checks up.

eta: and although I hate to say it, my first thought was 'bet money that guy's a Marine'.

What is it now...three generations of awarding those that come in last? Team play with no scores?

Generations of awarded losers meets a generational individual achieving self sufficiency who understands winners and losers.

This will go down in the Darwin Awards I am sure....

Are you seriously saying the gun shop owner should just roll over and be killed? What Bizarro world do you live in?

Odds are good. Maybe SF, back in the day...

Either way, the old guy definitely knew his business.

Could be an old operator.


I say Marines because you're more likely to run into them, and they're definitely better infantry than Army (nasty taste in my mouth on that one).

Another thing to watch is that he doesn't hesitate to whup that thing out. There's no pause, he's got it in his hand and in a modified Weaver in a blink. And he's carrying it in such a way that he can do that. No strap, and it's in the right place, and his hand knows where to go to get it. Doesn't seize up after dropping the first guy, either.

Oh man that was awesome, It's reassuring to know the gene pool is a little less polluted.....

So where did it all go wrong for them? Well for starters its a bad idea to pull a gun on someone who most likely has a shooting range out the back and uses it daily, The odds are not in your favour there, the store owner probably had an excellent weapon of choice, he's someone who most certainly knows his guns and chose wisely, While the robbers probably had whatever pos they could buy off the street and at most fired a couple of bullets from it to see if it works, The store owner could probably have dismantled, cleaned, Rebuilt and loaded his gun with a blindfold on, while the robber couldnt get his safety off without looking at it...

I would normally condone robbery, but today im going to encourage it, So, If you're a lowlife scumbag with a penchant for violence, Do us all a favour and Go rob a gun store.

Be my guest........

Robbing a gun store is a 99.9% chance of being a fail. I would have thought the crime school teaches that in the "Who to rob" class.

Blew him off his feet.

*Shaking head*

*Shrugs shoulders*

Dumb move, and the Shop owner seems truly disappointed it had to happen, he killed not his gun.
