    This individual must've had a suicide wish.
    Looks like the silver haired store owner was concentrating on his front sight. Good shooting!

    Idiot that got shot had two weapons and didn't seem to be using either one well. Not a shooting stance, no situational awareness, have to wonder if he was high on something.

    Looked at it again full screen, 1 second at a time. White haired guy becomes aware at about 6 seconds, steps back and draw, fires at about 8 seconds at a perp with a loaded gun aimed in his direction, perp fires at about same time, perps bullet hits gun case near the top and breaks glass, perp falls down dead. Wasn't 1 minute, whole thing was over in less than 6 to 10 sec and while his shot was center mass?, perps was nearly in line as nearly as I can see at close to the right height? Life did depend on evaluating the situation and reacting quickly and accurately under a high stress situation. That was one time that doing it 100 % as a trained reaction and muscle memory most likely saved his and perhaps the clerks as well. He may be an old rooster, but by God he is well worth watching and did an excellent job. Now a button down holster, trigger lock, bionic ID safe, etc in the name of "gun safety" would of a 100 % surely got him killed and a smaller caliber might have delayed the shock effect enough for the perp to get off either a better shot or a second shot.;

    Maybe the one that isn't taking a dirt nap will stick to robbing gun free zones next time.

    Hell'va good shot in a very high stress situation. Must have been a head shot also cause it dropped him like a sack of spuds.

    Slow the video and view again. Looks like a center mass hit to me.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    Apparently the perp was already squeezing when he was hit, because his shot (1 second later) went wide.

    The store owner beat the clock by 1 sec. and may well have saved the life of his employee.

    Nice post, the summary says it all..Train..Train..Train...

    In this incident at Dixie Gun and Pawn, the robbers had the advantages of surprise and numerical superiority. They still lost because Mr. Groover had solid training, good skills, and a plan that his mind automatically loaded and executed when the threat presented itself.

    The shop owner definitely fired first; and the bullet's impact caused the perp to pull his own trigger. The perp's shot was off, but not by much. The bad guy died where he stood because the owner's shot was a precise spinal core hit! That prostrate perp never even twitched because his, 'motors' were gone.

    I have to say, that single shot was ether a spinal, or face shot, not a twitch from dead tango! A center mass hit wouldn't drop a baddy instantly unless it was a spinal, and there was no floppin fish before the Lights Went Out in Georgia, so..............
    Even a shot to the pump, baddy would still be kickin for a few until he passed from lack of blood!
