    Would You Be Any Easy Mark?

    I suspect that "the moment" will come when I least expect it. Of all the scenarios running through my head, this is one I hadn't contemplated and not just because I don't work in a convenience store. How would you respond? Would you be up for the task? Could you double tap it? Sadly I suspect I'd fail... at least initially. Now if it had been beer...

    I suspect I'll die of a heart attack in my sleep. It almost happened once. That's when I got back into Harleys. I said, "If I can drop dead this easy it may as well be on my terms!"

    I don't go into convience stores, and only use pay at the pump for fuel, so not so much in my scenario. Fueling the vehical is one of the most dangereous, and loading shopping into the car. They like to catch you a little distracted.

    She looks as though she would be easily knocked off balance!

    What a shame! With assets like hers she could have easily found legal ways to make some money.

    I don't know about being an "easy mark", but I'd probably be easy and I doubt that she would need a knife.

    Gene, I just noticed your footnote thing. Nice! That's my religion precisely, I just can't believe it actually came from the Bible!

    Well, I guess you could say: Money is the answer for everything with a price tag. For everything else there's Glock! In Glock we trust.

    I'd have pulled and told her to lay face down on top of me, er, I mean face down on the floor.

    I guess her robbery attempt was a big bust (badda boomp)
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    She was well armed. She had a knife and a pair of 45s.
