    Video shows armed clerks scaring off masked robber

    "As soon as he walked in, he pointed the gun at the guy in the kitchen, and so the cashier started shooting at him," said clerk Yazin Shanablih.

    Now all the clerks need is training so that they can actually hit their target next time.

    {edit} Although I like that the dirtbag drops his gun as he tucks tail and runs.

    Agree with Whec. Do we not get to see ones in which people are actually shot? Not sure if it is a law, ongoing investigation etc. Just seems like it would be even more satisfying!

    They'll catch him. Not only do they have a gun as evidence, but they can probably also find a trail of feces.

    I'm betting very few of us would have hit the target in the exact same circumstances. Even trained cops seldom hit what their shooting at. When the adrenalin kicks in and the BG is shooting back aiming/shooting skills are lost very quickly.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I would like to add kudos to their employer for letting them carry guns on the job.... unlike most other places

    That's why we need those laser guided, or heat seeking, bullets.

    We're told the clerk who works at the register and fired back is shaken up and taking a well deserved week's vacation. At the store, the window that was shot out has already been replaced and it's business as usual.
    That deserves to be a paid vacation plus reimbursement for ammo used.

    As fast as that happen I'm not sure if you would even see the laser. Just an observation the gun sights didn't work either. Really this could be an argument for not buying one.

    Yeah, it was more "tongue in cheek humor" I was using. That's why I threw in the "heat seeking" bullets part as well because if one could get the laser on them to begin with, a conventional bullet should find its way just fine.

    no I got it, but if you look at the shootout I doubt if a laser would have done any good. They wasn't even using the sights on the gun
