    maybe but considering he was a former marine of 30 years, he has probably had enough of that.

    Naw, I think if the clerk would have fired he would have skated. The guy pulled a gun clearly in the tape. The would be thief is extremely lucky to be alive and in jail. The vet acted with tremendous restraint.
    A happy ending as previously stated.

    Yeah I think he did the right thing also I spoke out in Frustration it gets under my skin when punks do crap like that and get off free just to repete it again. Taking a human life is a very Serious thing I know and Should be used as the last resort if all else Fails. It seems like today They go to rob you, you do everything they ask and they still shoot you.

    videos like these make my happy. Not because there was an attempted robbery but I would be willing to bet that the would be thief will think very hard next time he tries that again...

    Great story!

    But after I felt sad that a man with his experience is working there.............perhaps a better offer may come his way now

    More likely. The vet gets fired and then sued by the perp . . .
    Remember, this is liberal Amerika!!!

    I don't know man, I couldn't pull the trigger either. If I was struggling with the guy and I was able to draw on him, yes I'd shoot. I would have a hard time explaining myself, specially since it was all on tape.
    Apparently the good guy was carrying a Walther PPX in a serpa level 2. Heck I don't know if I would have my finger on the trigger either. Once I am ready to shoot, then I'd put my finger in on the trigger.

    Either way, I am glad to see no one was hurt. I did like the look on the bad guy's face thought hahahahah I bet he dropped a deuce in his undies lol.

    If there would have been a struggle, i feel shooting the bad guy would have been justified. At that point, it could have gone either way in a mili second. It was close, when the clerk had his wrist, I'm sure the bad guy's life passed before his eyes. loll.
