Good and Bad. I'm glad he fought back but I would give him a gift certificate for a day at the range. I was not in his position and did not have the adrenalin flowing but you have to be careful of shooting innocents outside.
Everyone can second guess this guy, but if you've not experienced the adrenaline flow it's hard to understand. Perhaps having had his gun on his person where a draw could have allowed him to start shooting when he saw the gun come through the door would have helped, but that's a guess on my part. Tunnel vision is a killer!
I would not like thinking that these dirtbags are still in the neighborhood...and...they know he's armed.
Stay armed...keep it on your person...stay safe!

I hope he didn't get fired for going against company policy....
For God, Family and Country!
Right at the end of the video, near the top center of the screen, it looks like after all the shooting there is still a customer in the store shopping!
Yes, there is that possibility, but when you're in a firefight and someone's trying to kill you at close range...it's just not one of your high priority thoughts in those few seconds.but you have to be careful of shooting innocents outside.
The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
looked kinda crazy the way it happend but the clerk shooting as wild as he did yep we can sit her and say he shoulda done this or that but none of us were there but im pretty sure if we were there they be 2 BGs on the floor the clerk had a gun but one thing he didnt have which was obvious Traning.
I would love to be a fly on the wall to hear what those two discussed when they got outside the store.
It is a good thing the clerk saw the whole thing coming and was able to get his gun. It looks like it was fairly inaccessible.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
Glad the Clerk isn't dead. Was his gun sitting on the counter next to the register?

John Lott in his book The Bias Against Guns asserted that the distorted view the public has about guns based media reports of gun violence is not solely the result of media bias. But because acts of self defense go under reported because most cases self defense do not result in blood shed and the cliche if it bleeds it leads is based on fact. This story seems to contradict that theory as my impression there was blood shed. I think that the media is far more biased and willing to distort what is reported to fit their liberal agenda than John Lott's studies imply

He did very well. His situational awareness was excellent, as was his use of what little cover was available. Most of his shots were fired at an upward angle which prevented hitting any shoppers. I doubt if 1/10 of 1% of us could have done as well.
