    I don't think I would be making any statements for the press.

    I don't get why he'd want to make a statement to the press. It has more of a chance to harm him than it does to benefit him.

    Plus, his CCW instructor can't be as great as he claims if he was carrying unchambered. Glad it all worked out and the BG got shot.

    Bad situation, Good ending. Press statement not the smartest idea. Fact that he had to chamber a round is a moot point, good outcome end result.

    but it didn't.... Which goes to prove that an unchambered gun is not as useless as a rock.

    I've never argued that an unchambered gun is "just as good" and I don't think anyone one here ever has. But it irritates me to no end when people say that it is useless and might as well not be carrying. Obviously this story proves otherwise.

    No kidding. I've already told myself that if I ever have to shoot I won't be talking to ANYONE! ESPECIALLY the press after a shooting.....
    Furthermore I'll even ask the police to keep my identity confidential for fear of retaliation.
    I know it may end up being public information but I'll still ask.

    Even though I don't agree with a press conference, at least he had the presence of mind to state that he felt their lives were in danger.

    I wouldn't be that concerned unless I felt it was gang-related. I still have no idea what the BG in this story looks like. But if he appeared to be part of a gang, I'd most likely want my identity as secret as possible. If he was just a self-serving street thug, I'd probably like the chance to explain publicly what happened to put people's minds at ease.

    This guy clearly is looking for attention. From the very beginning he was posting online about the ordeal. Anyone with an ounce of common sense would know to keep their mouth shut. He is definitely in search of the "Hero" label.

    Frankly, I'm tired of hearing about this guy.

    He was involved in a situation where the BG's main focus was not on him but was on getting cash from the register,there were also other patrons that helped divide the Robbers attention,giving the GG the time he needed to draw and chamber a round.
    I would not claim that carrying unchambered is a great idea due to the fact if you were the sole victim his attention would be on you 100% of the time,and given enough time to draw and fire from retention,having to stop to chamber a round will very likely get you dead.

    It would have been useless if the BG would of heard the racking of the gun and turned a put a big old hole in our friend in Wisconsin...

    Im with DOC on this. This guy wants his 15 minutes of fame. He is a douche.

    ^^^^^adric, please do not take this the wrong way^^^^^^^^^^



    but how exactly does one differentiate between someone in a gang, and someone who is not???


    As soon as you see a biker, are you able to disseminate the facts, and ascertain if that individual belongs to a gang?
    Can you spot two young people, walking down an inner-city street, and draw an instant conclusion, as to whether or not they belong to a gang, based on how they wear their hat or pants dragging on the ground?

    1}
    I'm gonna dummy up first, real fast.

    2}
    I'm gonna lawyer up, almost as fast.

    3} I'm gonna get the wife & kids outta Dodge to the sister in-laws house real fast for a week or so.
    That way, if the house blows up or, is mysteriously riddled with bullets, rendering it akin to a slice of swiss cheese, its only a house.

    I'm also in the camp, which is saying the shooter is/was an Attention W_o_e.
