    Video: Barry Fixler USMC Ret. Jewelry store shootout

    YouTube - Failed Armed Robbery - Barry's Estate Jewelry

    Combat vet of Khe Sanh, now owns a jewelry store in NY.

    Had to deflect a gun in his face and run to get his gun when the robbery started.

    Shot his gun empty and didn't know it. Held a wounded armed robber at (empty)gunpoint.

    He done good, so much for the "average number of shots" being enough as there were 3 other bad guys that could have become targets.

    great example of how fast things can develop and go...i thought the deflection was going to be followed by a disarming move and couldnt believe how the bg followed him with his gun and didnt hit him with a shot...

    crazy situation...way to keep cool under pressure...

    Same video _without_ the annoying and unnecessary "Semper Cool" logo blocking much of the video as in play.
    I played this link while having the other video play for audio commentary as at the same time in sequence.

    Edit:
    For store defense/everyone he needs a large capacity short barrel combat shotgun (18.5" maximum), a carbine rifle or ah handgun that is _not_ a sub-compact and magazine/cylinder capacity of just five rounds...High capacity fifteen or more rounds is more sensible and a full sized 5" barrel is best for sight radius on a handgun that he's not even wearing on body to conceal.

    He got soooo lucky on multiple fronts including the BG gunman not having the stones to do him right there at the counter as he fled toward his own gun.

    Part luck and part trained reflexes saved his butt that day.

    Acute victim selection failure.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I still believe in God, this guy should in my view also.

    God, Guts and Guns. The 3Gs, don't leave home without them.

    I'm sure glad he came out of that mess in one piece. He sure did get lucky that day. I'm glad they got all the BGs also.

    A quick violent reaction on the jeweler's part saved his life...

    Paralized for there years and then dead. That's a long time to think about how dumb you were to rob someone. That's worse than jail in my opinion

    to bad it doesn't happen more often, it may make a few of the people decide not to take up armed robbery, though most don't do it because they are smart.
