    Good for her! She exercised restraint in not just shooting him immediately. Of course if she did, she might be in trouble because he only had a knife, legal insanity being what it is. Hope this slime doesn't return more heavily armed.

    Goes by the name of "King" out on the street.

    I think King just might have had to change his underwear after one of his "subjects" drew down on him.

    Hopefully someone will know him and he will have to abdicate his throne and get a new Castle with bars.

    One thing that bothered me about that video - unless I'm misinterpreting what she said, she's only shot the gun twice at a range? Not enough practice at all.

    However, this is one of those stories I love hearing. I also commend her on her wisdom to not fire when his back was turned like she said. Shows she kept her head about her throughout all of it as well.

    Good for her. Glad she had the gun and glad for her she didn't use it.

    She did well. But had she stuck that gun over the counter with a felon who'd been around the dance floor previously, holding that gun out there precipitously at arm's length, it's entirely likely she'd have been disarmed and subsequently executed. Close call, there, though likely she doesn't appreciate that.

    Time to learn to shoot right through the counter, in such situations.

    Either way ... Good for her, for stopping the robbery.

    Gun on body beats gun under counter. Better - both.

    I believe I would have, as well.

    Want to dare to take everything I've got up to and including my very life? I'll refuse you. Every time.
