    Good: CCW holder shoots robber at Family Dollar

    Good Samaritan shoots suspect, speaks | fox10tv.com

    Best quote from the article:

    “They (the criminals) tend to think that they are the only ones with guns. I’ve been legally carrying my firearm for a little over four years now, and thank God I’ve never had to use it until, of course, last night. It just goes to show it's good to have a concealed carry. you never know when your going to need it.”

    Good for this customer...got five shot into the dirtbag. Unfortunately, the dirtbag...who already was charged with a Sept robbery...will live to rob again, and he will until someone signs his eternity retirement papers.

    I'm glad the fellow who intervened did not get hurt. I hate to ask the obvious, why was the bad guy not in jail?

    Too bad he didn't pay the ultimate price. While in prison and when back on the streets, I'm sure he'll be letting everybody know "homie, I done took 5 and survived".

    Ah ha! The "Travis solution" works!

    Originally coined by Mike 1956, the "Travis solution" was used in the movie Taxi Driver. De Niro played Travis.

    Got the gun off the intended victim, and opened fire... I love it!

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    5 shots and still alive......hello 9mm.

    Thats actually pretty discomforting because I carry an XDs 45 and we all know thats only 5+1 so hopefully thats not the round that was used in this case.

    If you're going to the strip club later it's really helpful to have robbed all those singles.

    But did he use the same ammo the PD uses? Did he use those deadly, man-killer reloads (Obviously not)? Did he tell the police he was in fear for his life?

    The Local LE probably just said, "Nice shootin', Earl."

    Loads of variables in every shooting situation and no anticipation of how it will end. We've seen people killed by one round of .25acp and people being capped with large caliber ammo and living. ***shrugging*** who knows.

    At the minimum the robbery threat was stopped cold. But the thug's number will come up again, doubtful he will learn and some one with a better shot perhaps will punch his ticket straight to eternity.

    Shot placement,just because the guy carried a gun doesn't mean he trained with it,I guarantee you at the range he was at if I had to fire my 1911 he would have a big hole right in the middle of his chest

    Around here, they put Family Dollar stores in lower-rent districts.
