Guy tries to rob a gun store with a baseball bat, fails miserably

BEAVERTON, Ore. - You've heard the old saying 'don't bring a knife to a gun fight.'

Well how about a bat? Apparently, that doesn't work too well either - just ask 22-year-old Derrick Mosley.

Sheriff's deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.

But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.

When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found Mosley on the floor being held at gunpoint by the manager. They handcuffed Mosley on the spot and took him into custody on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree criminal mischief. Bail was set at $250,000.

Seriously??? Who would bring a bat to rob a a gun store other than the obvious... the manager and cashier would obviously be armed to the teeth

Not to mention if it had an indoor range (common here) the customers (many of them cops) would be armed with anything from a .22 to hand cannons like my Magnum Research BFR .500 Magnum. Dumb.

Almost as bad as holding up a Dunkin Donuts 2 blocks from the police headquarters, which actually happened here. A bozo ran in with a gun and demanded cash with 8 cops in the store & 4 patrol cars in the lot.
