    I did not know Joe was a member here! That is great news. If he hunts around the search, he'll find some great accolades for not only his actions, but also how he represented himself in the news media interviews.

    He is a great guy and great ambassador for those who carry concealed.

    Thanks for posting. I'll have to pick up that issue!

    it was a good read. it is funny how the media spun it such that having an armed citizen was a bad thing in this situation.

    While I'm sure that some will debate the wisdom of running towards the action in Joe's case, I think there is one very important point that we need to make sure the anti-gunners don't miss! That is: Joe found himself in a tense situation while armed, identified a target, analyzed the threat, then made the right decision not to fire. This is proof that properly educated citizens can be trusted to make the right choice even during a high-stress encounter.

    Thinking back to seeing several of the interviews Joe made at the time, what struck me most was how mature and level headed he appeared to me.

    IIRC, Joe said "He never had any formal firearms training before, but had been raised around guns since he was a kid." As far as I'm concerned, he just had a level head, a strong moral compass, and a good deal of common sense. No doubt, attributed to the way he was brought up. Good parents? I think so!

    Courage? I don't think he even thought about it. He just acted. Instinctively. And because he did, we can say "Yes, he is a courageous man."

    I was proud to be a gun owner after seeing his news interviews!

    Like all of us here, we cringe when we see or read about irresponsible gun owners. Especially ccw holders who screw up and provide fodder for the anti's. Not that day. That day, Joe Zamudio made us all proud. Good job, buddy!

    Yes! the Mas article is a must read for all that cross this board.


    Joe, job well done! That is you did what you could. How many anti-gunners would have the courage you showed, & run into a situation like that? You have a cool head & a great "moral compass"!

    You have my heartfelt admiration.

    I already posted my thoughts on Mr. Joe here at the time that incident occured. I'll say, again, Bravo Zulu!

    This was an excellent artical, most certinally hearing about how everything has 'evolved' since the shooting and what's taken place....from Joe;s point of view.

    Interesting read and more details about the incident than I knew before.

    Oh by the way Joe is now carrying that Glock 17 that the MAG 40 class bought him.
