I'm surprised that this is the first post on this. KGW just reported that Gresham PD is holding a man in custody for firing off his legally concealed hand gun at a couple of bad guys who robbed an AT&T Wireless Store. Unfortunately they spun a slightly negative story - and rightfully so! I don't want to cast a negative judgment on this man - but this was a great argument for those that drill the Training - Training - Training, and more training message. The man sees a robbery in progress and is compelled to act - GOOD THING He fires at them as they are driving away in their getaway car - in direct path of a bus stop - VERY VERY VERY BAD THING ! ! ! ! ! ! ! I feel for this man . . . . . but this was a STUPID judgment call and reflects on all of us! . . . whether you are a CCer or OCer or both. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO JUST GO BUY A NEW PISTOL, TAKE A COMPETENCY COURSE, GET FINGER PRINTED, THEN WAIT FOR YOUR NEW CHL CARD TO COME IN THE MAIL. IT IS NOT ENOUGH! ! ! ! ! REAL CQB/SELF-DEFENSE TRAINING IS A MUST!! AT THE MINIMUM . . . . KNOW THE LAWS IN YOUR TOWN. AT THE MINIMUM . . . . TAKE TIME OUT OF YOUR DAY, EVERY DAY, TO CONTEMPLATE HOW YOU WILL DEAL WITH PERSON-ON-PERSON CRIMES AND SELF-DEFENSE. IF NOT - LEAVE YOUR GUN AT HOME. I open carry and conceal carry in Portland every day. I don't obsess over it, but I do think of the ramifications of my decisions every day. We all should pray for this guy, get him out of jail, then beat him! Bad move dude . . .very bad move. This should be a good lesson for the rest of us. Packing heat is awesome! blowing off at the wrong time . . .not a good thing.
