    Most gun stores in Delaware have about 4-6 employees who are all armed, and spread throughout the store. Bad idea to try to hold them up.

    Not only are the employees at my LGS armed but quite often you will find at least one or two customers armed also.

    From another report that I read they had laid 40 bucks on the counter and left it when they run.

    There's a reason most gunstores that do get robbed get robbed AT NIGHT when no one is there.

    There's also a reason most gunstores move all of their inventory into a large safe in the back, have bars on the window, and anti-vehicle bollards in front of the store to avoid smash and grabs.

    Yea, pretty stupid! They're lucky no one pulled the trigger!

    One of my former LGSs, Blackwater Trading Post, was robbed when it was open in '79. Guy came in shooting, killed the owner. Place was in a backwater village on a dead end path, facing the RR tracks. Here:

    Actually, not the first time such a thing has happened................

    Confirmed True by Darwin

    3 February 1990, Washington

    The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree appeared to be the robber's first, due to his lack of a previous record of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:

    1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms. A gun shop.

    2. The shop was full of customers - firearms customers.

    3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door.

    4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having coffee before work.

    Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a holdup, and fired a few wild shots. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, covered by several customers who also drew their guns, thereby removing the confused criminal from the gene pool.

    No one else was hurt.

    Idiots...
    I faithfully 'support' two gun stores, and you wouldn't want to rob either one of them. In both, the owners and some of the employees have instant access to weapons and many shoot competition.
