Default Store Clerk Defends Himself... No shots Fired

This is pretty neat. I saw it on Fox News tonight. They said the convenience store clerk retired from the military after 30 years.

If I ever have to pull my gun in self-defense, I hope it goes as smoothly as this.

That is more restraint than I could have mustered.

I think that's true of a lot of people.

Also, I believe a lot of people would have frozen up the second they saw him pull his gun.

Could be, but it looks like in the video that he pushes the guy's gun away. Maybe it was just a reflex.

The store clerk showed a lot of restraint under the circumstances---I am not sure I would have shown that much restraint...

Default This is crazy awesome

I hope I can put this here, like something out of a movie

Gun rights forever, and good on the man for restraint.

Hahaha!! That is awesome!! I don't blame the guy for just turning around and walking away!! A face full of steel will do that!! It's amazing with all of the firearms carriers these days, people still try to pull that crap. Well, except for those "gun-free" zones. Then it's open season for them to do what they want. Thank god nothing crazy happened in that situation. Cooler heads always prevail.
