    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...

    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.

    i think this would be better suited being in the Club House.

    has nothing to do with handgun discussion.

    The story I read said that the reason the clerk didn't fire is because the gun was never actually pointed at him.

    that clerk has one hell of a cool head and balls off steel. I hope im never in a defensive situation like this, but if I ever am I vote it goes something like that.

    Yes he showed more restraint than I think I would. I can't imagine a jury that would not have called that justified if he had shot. I would not have waited until the gun was actually pointing at me.

    The clerk was a BOSS in that situation. Although, the perp seemed very reluctant to present his weapon and was very easily convinced not to. He let the clerk reach out and touch his gun hand with no protest. Strange.

    I just noticed the clerk was open carrying. What kind of idiot tries to rob someone who who obviously has the means to fight back. winner if it would have gone differently if he was cc and had to screw with getting his shirt out if the way to draw.

    My guess is the robber maybe just hit rock bottom and really intended no harm, just needed cash. Now by all means that doesn't justify or make it right, and if he would have ended up with one to the face,, it would've been his own damn fault.
