    Gunman's weapon repeatedly jams - Story | WNYW

    Hid his face in a black shirt, tried to shoot a woman at her home twice, weapon apparently jammed both times, perp takes off running but lets shirt fall from face just in time to be captured on a NYPD Camera.

    Sadly, NYC is one of the most gun controlled (meaning law abiding citizens are restricted) cities in the US. This woman owes her life to the lack of training and preparation this wanna-be shooter had when he tried his best (such as it was) to shoot her.

    I guess he failed Armed Robbery 101.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Failure did not come as a result of the victim not doing their part.

    I thought the crooks only used Glocks - but Glocks don't jam. Confusing, it is.

    I saw a brief video clip somewhere else. This appears to be a deliberate shooting attempt, not a robbery. Granted we do not know what happened prior.

    I know from a cop this happened to, and I have read accounts of other incidents, that some bad guys load guns with the wrong ammo, or load the right ammo improperly into the gun or don't get it into battery properly, etc. The cop I knew came face to face with bad guy with a double barreled shotgun that went "click, click." He had loaded a 12 gauge with 16 gauge shells (remember them?).

    Not sure, but it seems that the attempted shooter tried to manually close the slide instead of letting go and letting it do its job. Kinda nasty video, but he seems to keep his hand on the slide as he's loading. So major operator error in not letting the slide move all the way forward. ???? Anybody else see that? Or just choppy video?
