    What will you do?

    Considering the following scenario what will you do?
    In an office, a customer with a infant on the counter, twp reps behind counter.
    An armed robber charging-in...what will you do?

    Yeah Jeff, I've seen that one and I think the guy did alot of things right. He went out of his way and took considerable time to try to just get away from those guys. And though it is unclear whether going down that dead-end was on purpose or by accident he did wait to confront them without a bunch of innocents around. Those guys were lucky he didn't just drop them right then and there.

    I will overlook that he took the guy's camera, which some might say turned him from victim to armed robber.

    M@X, that vid has been posted here before:

    Watch video. Good or bad?

    But I would be interested in the poll results.

    I think this guy made the right decision and made his shots count. He knew what he was doing and I think he did a good job Handling the situation. I hope I would react the same way

    I never understand what's in these Mr. Robber's mind.

    Recently (late Feb this year) I got robbed at gun point about in a store about same situation as video link posted, my 2 years son stood next to me. It happened so sudden no time for me to react, no chance to draw my gun beside to cooperated. Thank God we are OK.

    I guess I wasn't practicing enough. I'm going to FRONTSIGHT this summer getting some serious self-defense training.

    I like how the guy behind the counter played the roll and then used the element of surprise but it seems like the shots were being fired way too close to the little girl. Fortunately nobody was hurt except maybe the robber but that was a close call.
