A fast miss worked this time.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on November 19th, 2006

This shooting could have gone the other way if the bad guy had fired first. The store clerk reacted quickly, had a plan and lived another day.

Some of you may have seen this already but many have not. I’d rather you have the chance than decide for you and not put this up. Besides, it’s fun watching the guy in the ski mask change direction so quickly and run for the door.

What’s the lesson here? A gun in your hand beats the hell out of one you can’t get to quickly. I friend of mine has 6 guns in his house concealed but accessible (no little kids to worry about) and I asked him about his strategy. He said, “I’m very well-trained in the use of a firearm for defense, I don’t want to wear a gun all the time in my house and I refuse to be a victim.  Multiple locations work for me.”

A home invasion is rare but it could happen as quickly as the attempted robbery/shooting in the convenience store video. Quick access to a loaded firearm will give you a chance to survive. What’s your strategy?

    “What’s your strategy?”

    Simple. Carry all the time. With an Answer, there’s never a reason not to.

    That’s why I like Tucker’s stuff. There’s nothing about it that makes me want, or need to take it off. It not only HAS passed the “nap test” but actually does it all the time! haha

    At night… Pistol with rail light affixed to bed rails, along side, a 500 lumen Surefire and a cell phone. Shotgun behind the bed, in easy, one handed reach.

    But if Im vertical… Im packing.

    The only condition I don’t yet feel 100% comfortable with, is when seated in the car with my seat belt on. I can’t tolerate shoulder rigs and the car seat offerings I’ve seen look medeval. I’m thinking of ordering up a cross draw rig for this. It’d just have to be really easy, on and off. For the time being, I do have a nice spot between my seat and console, which snugs my 1911 very securely.

    Stay Safe!
