    Shame it wasn’t a grave error in victim selection.

    Also worth mentioning that with previous victims robbery was after the fact, these scum bags were beating people for the fun of it.

    "These are just brazen, cowardly attacks," said Fossum. The robberies appear very similar to a rash of robberies in Dinkytown starting in late February
    What couldn't one expect in a town called *Dinkytown*?

    Outstanding sir. No such thing as an ex-marine, only "former marine". Theres an old saying that goes "never fight with an old man, he'll just kill you"

    Cowards like most attackers that jump people in the dark. Can you imagine what would've happened had he not have had a firearm? I doubt he would even have to shoot anyone of them, just the fact that he was willing to fight back and was backed up with something substantial was enough to shut them down.

    I'm not saying it's not important to be competent with your weapon but sometimes just taking up for yourself is enough to counter would-be attacks.

    Knuckledraggers.

    Hope your headline stays true.

    "puts an end to brass knuckle beatings"

    They may just turn to more lethal means.

    From article;

    "He had just parked his car in the parking lot," said Fossum. "These guys blitzed him. They just started kicking his ass. He managed to get off three rounds."

    In my book brass knuckles are a deadly weapon. They are 'semi-illegal' in VA for a reason.

    18.2-308. Personal protection; carrying concealed weapons; when lawful to carry.

    A. If any person carries about his person, hidden from common observation.....metal knucks.....he shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

    C'mon he couldnt have hit atleast 1???? Age is no excuse to not practice with your weapon.

    What I hate more than anything is a person with a concealed weapon genuinely carrying for self defense but wont give two whims to practice at a range.

    Please do not argue this point. If you shoot enough you train your mind and reflexes to be accurate no matter the stress. I have shot so many rounds thus far I can say it feels natural every time I pull that trigger with out having to think about crap.
