I have read a lot of these reports, and have come to the conclusion that if I am ever confronted by multiple assailants I'll put shots in as many of them as I can. That way it'll be obvious that I was outnumbered and it wasn't just a one-on-one confrontation. Plus it would get all of them identified so they all get either arrested or planted in the ground.

What got me about the story is the store owner managed to get control of the rifle. Yet the robbers with the brass knuckles continued to attack. If I hit someone with brass knuckles once and he didn't fall, I would be looking under the guys shirt for a superman outfit. I don't think I would have continued the attack. I would be looking for the nearest exit.
