The only two ways off the island Ketchikan is on is by air or by boat, and it's not all that big a place. This guy is really dumb.

I've been in Ketchikan. Beautiful place...great fishing, too!
It's a small city built on the side of a mountain...there is no place to go out of town...this robber is a real 'maroooon'.
Needless to say, the victim grabbing the BG's gun is proof of the BG's stupidity...now let's see the BG gets 'out of town'...boat or plane?

Seems a lot of folks think that being elderly equals being feeble .
You don't get old by being stupid or not able to take care of yourself.
The guy was lucky the victim did not throw a couple of shots at him.

There's a couple of old men around town who could, and would, put that gun in it's "natural holster".
