Holy s**t! All that damage from just one van ramming the place?

It's too bad that the store owner had to shoot but he did what he had to do to protect his property and save his own life. 3 more bad guys off the street, thanks to him.

K'Raven Goodwin and his buds failed victim selection 100. K'Raven became worm food and his two buds got holed; as is should be. Good on the business owner.

Three rocket scientists right there. "Let's rob a gun store, nobody there will be and armed and it will be an easy job." Darwin Awards candidates for sure.

3 scumbags got what they deserved! I feel bad for the owner, though...not an easy ordeal to go thru I am sure. But he did what he had to do...

Nice shooting to be honest. He hit all three and killed one with the adrenalin up. I was impressed that he went for what appeared to an AR variant, every store I have ever shopped the guys are all wearing pistols, I would have thought he would have instinctively went there.

Good for him.

The article reads like it happened at night, when the place was closed. The crooks thought the place would be empty, but it sounds like the store is a family owned place and the owners live at the store?

If you start to see more of this the bad guys may think twice about a life of crime.

Those steel building walls are probably thinner than the bodywork on the van. I would reinforce the walls or maybe put a line of concrete and steel bollards around the place if I were him.

Either way, great shooting. I wonder what ammo he used? Is that rifle a .308?
