Unbeknownst to him, the man behind the counter served 30 years in the military, including four tours of duty in Iraq. He also is a former prison guard, private investigator, professional extraditor of federal prisoners, and a proud owner of a Walther PPX 9 mm handgun.

That robber should have known that this is the default resume of a liquor store clerk here in Missouri... After that line of work, you've got two choices; sit behind the counter of Beer 30, or become a cop.

I'm more surprised that an Army Vet, Private Investigator, Prison Guard, etc... works at a liquor store.

Times are tough.

 

 

Or

 

Maybe it is a second job.

Stick to the news topic. Please take gun control discussions to the gun control thread.

I'd imagine after having that kind of life you might want to settle down and do something less dangerous/stressful.

The most likely type of retail establishment to be held up can hardly be described as "less dangerous."

Cool. And he had the restraint not to just start firing like a lunatic.

 

Show me a video like this where someone started firing like a lunatic.

 

Even if he did, he would have still done the right thing. Because now if the guy didn't learn his lesson, he might try and use that gun on someone else.

That wouldn't surprise me, DocM. I know I would have been! :)

Me too, and then some. :D
