    Saw that. Score one for retention holsters, - one for a Brinks guard using SA.

    I often see them out out and unload with hardly a look around. Obviously so has someone else.

    Welcome to South Florida, where armed truck robberies are a weekly thing
    They are becoming too rampant lately IMO.

    Since he was no longer in fear of his life, some would say he should not have fired those shots. I'm not one of those. Good for him!

    They proned him out and after hopping in their car maybe he feared they would try to run him over having been unsuccessful in grabbing his gun...that's the claim I would make anyway.

    Pretty poor SA...he didn't seem to notice anything unusual until the BGs were about 3 feet from him. Glad he wasn't hurt.

    I think I sort of am one of those. Don't get me wrong... I'm not at all sorry for the BG that got hit (hope it really stings), but by the time he fired wasn't he protecting property and not acting in the lawful defense of self and others?

    Armed security falls into a totally difference catagory than someone with a personal carry license.

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    Yeah, I think you are correct and it wouldn't surprise me if he is charged. But that doesn't mean I agree with it. He may have told them to halt and they fired at him first, who knows. But they are complete idiots for leaving him armed and then turning their back on him.

    Yeah, I wouldn't agree with him getting charged, just more the mentality of when it's appropriate to shoot. I'd be interested to see what his company policy's is on firing one's weapon.

    Didn't read the text of the FL law, but according to that article, it's similar to OR, where deadly physical force is permitted in "preventing or stopping a felony by force". I think armed grand larceny would count as "felony by force".
