If I remember correctly the store owner spotted the bad guy's gun quickly, drew quickly and was in position take the first shot (by just a split second). He squeezed the trigger but had not, unfortunately, disengaged the safety. The result was that the store owner was shot multiple times in the abdomen and was only able to get one shot off that missed the BG.
    It's been said that our performance level during a firefight is about 50% of what it is when we're at the range leaving the real possibility that elevated stress levels may likely cause us to rush and make a mistake. I guess the lesson here, which had been said by many more than myself, is to practice, practice, practice. Make it second nature to disengage the safety at some point when presenting your weapon to its target.
    I do not know if we are talking about the same video or not. There is one about a jewelry store owner who was attacked by two robbers and was killed, Store Owner Killed in Very Close Range Violent Robbery Shootout - NothingToxic.com . To me it looks like the gun was not cambered or that it jammed. I think that the first the store owner did after unholstering was to try to rack the slide. But once again, I do not know if you are referring to the same video.
