It Happens Very Fast!

Watch the exchange in this Ohio Food Mart self defense shooting.

He was aware of the situation and knew the person looked suspicious (profiling?)

That awareness probably saved his life!

Fast draw but very poor aim. Needs a little work on his point shooting

Fast draw, but, was it me or did it look like he chambered a round, fired once, then had to chamber another manually?

LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY.

With such poor aim at 6 feet, that coulda gone either way.

Glad he is OK though. Good thing he was paying attention.

Looks to me like that clerk's situational awareness saved his life !!!!!

The way that dude approached, appeared that he was fully intending to kill him with a shot to the head, then take the money.

I can understand why the clerk is still shaken-up over this and I hope he's able to quickly heal that mental wound.

If he doesn't shoot any better than that? He should trade the pistol in and get a 12 ga with a 18 inch barrel.
