    I've heard of people breaking in to them, but never trying anything while they're open. Out of the three I frequent, 2 of them are always staffed by at least 1 open carrier and I suspect the others CC.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    It is to bad that some one did not instill a sense of morals in this young man at a early age.

    Bad parenting or no parenting will lead to prison time and or early death.

    I've been to several Gun Shows in Wichita Ks.,I was born in Salina and moved to Tx 3 years ago.I don't know of too many gunshops that don't watch you like a hawk when you walk in,unless they know you and trust you,most gun owners I believe are pretty honest and even if the owner doesn't see you somebody else might.Just like in this case.I was at a gunshow in Pharr Tx a couple weeks agojust about the time vendors were packing up and noticed one vendor stuffing an electric cord in a box,there were a set of reading glasses caught in it and he never noticed it.I walked over and advised him what I witnessed and he said thanks I would have been looking all over trying to find them.

    He's lucky he's still breathing this time. Around here, he would have been shot by the employees.

    Some gunstores are actually targeted during business hours.

    I know a small shop that has little business, and few walk-in customers. Off the top of my head I can think of three shootings in the last twenty years at that shop alone. One of them, gunfights/armed robbery, put the wife of the owner in a wheelchair. I think she managed to get some rounds off, but I don't think she struck the badguy with any of her bullets.

    The owner has killed one badguy. The third one, I don't recall. So, it can and does happen. Both of them carry as well. Maybe because they don't have much business and appear to be older folks the younger felonious individuals think they are "easy pickings"?

    The major gun store here in Minneapolis has about 6-8 employees visible at any time and they all open carry with many having another BUG in their cargo pants. It would be a bad day for anyone to try that here.

    Yeah but you never know when some idiot has a dimly lit bulb in his head and has a mag of ammo to fit the gun he wants to look at,he gets the gun and suddenly slaps a mag in and chambers a round,then the fights on.

    Hmm, good point, not likely from the sounds of the particular story the OP posted, but a possibility none the less.

    You truly never know, anytime, anywhere, and that's the reason I carry everyday.

    think harder...theres nothing indicating he isnt armed already and looking for another gun...you can be pretty certain its why the kid had so many guns in his face immediately....

    dont make the mistake of thinking someone is stealing something because they dont have one...they may just be looking for more...
