Carrying at 4 O clock...behind the counter...it's unlikely the BG saw the gun. You know just how much crap is on the counter at just about every store.

A good way to die. I tell people hesitation can get you killed. This guy was VERY lucky.
Not sure if stupid....brave and maybe a bit mis-guided. But the BG could have been showing nervousness, maybe a bit shaky and the clerk diffused it quickly.....what would I do.....dunno.

The clerk is just plain LUCKY to be alive. We have a tendency to rationalize 'all is well that ends well' and not learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others. The clerk should have neutralized the threat without hesitation, HE DID NOT! It ended well THIS TIME but I have seem it not go this way for many who hesitated to pull the trigger when they had the chance.
This was simply 'testosterone' gone wild! In life and death situations you MUST NOT hesitate even for a split second or it may not end in your favor.
I am glad it ended the way it did, but that doesn't make it RIGHT!!!

I have watched this several times. The clerk did NOT disarm the bandit or control his weapon. The bandit, at any time, could have fired on the clerk.
I will stick with 'stupid'!

Here's my opinion. Once the BG's gun was pushed down, and the clerk had his gun on him....any further action from the clerk would have been agressive. The BG didn't do anyting after the gun was pushed away. However I think the clerk stopped short by letting the BG just walk away. But as far as the clerks actions....once he "got the drop on him" he wasn't in a life threatening situation.....but certainly it could have been one. Perhaps the clerk had something that the rest of us didn't have...situational awareness.

I really enjoy reading cavalier post on how the clerk should've just shot the BG no matter what. The clerks gun was in his face, the bad guys gun was down, at that point there was no real danger, now had the bad guy even attempted to raise his weapon again then ,,yes I agree neutralize the threat. I think in this situation cooler heads prevail and a bad guy even though a bad guy didn't have to die on that day.

my thoughts exactly. What he did was wrong, if he wanted to kill he had the drop on the clerk. For all we know he could have been a good guy in a desperate situation who made a bad choice. did he want drug money or was did he needing money to feed his family. The odds of that being the case are slim bit and that doesn't make it Ok to rob a store but does anyone here really know?
