    Moves in the opposite direction as the BG's are moving(L-R) as they are rushing to the left, he begins dumping rounds allowing the first to keep proceeding, then as they begin to decide they have a more pressing engagement elsewhere, he moves back to the left, thereby popping the first who is now last.
    I am rather suprised he didn't hit one of the others off the git-go.

    Can't wait to hear the BGs mommies, they were toy guns, they wasn't loaded, they weren't gonna hurt nobody, the guard over reacted. Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada.

    With the hours of boredom of sitting a post like that the shooter there has probably run this exact scenario a thousand times mentally. Unlike a police officer who never knows where or when, your post sitting, chair warming security guard has the luxury of knowing the location in detail. He probably knew what was cover, what was concealment, and knew the distances. If he takes his job seriously (which this one apparently does) he has probably spent a good bit of his range time shooting at distances from contact range to the distance to the front doors there. Those guys ran into his killing ground and didn't have a clue.

    Kudos to the guy in that video. I spent some time as an armed security guard after the military and during college, usually accompanying the nice folks from the bank who stock ATM's. It would be one thing to stop a crime when you are on edge and very aware of your surroundings knowing you are walking into a dicey 7/11 with a box of money. It's a much more impressive act given that this guy was probably sitting, night after night, late at night, in a normally peaceful place. Some may have become complacent and slow, not this guy. Awesome job!

    This guy is certainly not a "Mall Ninja"
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.
