    What would you do?

    Came across this video on youtube. Glad a CPL holder was carrying, probably against internet cafe policy, but his actions could have saved lives. Your thoughts?

    From the camera angles it's difficult to see whether the man had a clear shot, but since no one else got shot and the perpetrators did, I'd have to give this man two thumbs up.

    I have to also point out, he tried to get as close as he could before he shot. That was level-headed.

    I believe this has been seen and discussed on some of these forums. Quite "ballsy" by the old guy but line of fire and where is the bullet going seem to be in play.

    I have to say this shows great situational awareness and controlled group fires. Granted it looked like a smaller pistol, maybe a snub nose or a 380, but, all things considered, hitting both of the robbers and acting quickly. I thought Id seen this on here before, but wasnt too sure.

    The robbers had weapons (e.g. a gun), they were in close proximity, there was a hostile threat, and this was a forcible felony (in FL). He was "afraid for his life" and tried to "stop the threat" and was not arrested. Case closed. Thankfully no bystander got hit.

    I love that video. It also came was aired within a week of the cops in NY hitting the innocent bystanders when chasing down the gunman outside the Statue of Liberty...gotta love the timing.
