I would like to know how many shots were on target and where they hit. In the video it looks like no shots made solid hits.

It looked like an IDPA drill except real *******s to shoot at.

Both BG's were hit and later arrested . This video is proof positive that a .380 won't put them down but it sure gets their ass in gear running .... That ole'feller ( I call him Ole' I'm Ole' ) handled himself pretty well considering the adrenaline dump he just experienced. I'm not sure the lady standing a few feet from the muzzle, whose ears are still ringing would care though .... He lined up his shot well, the drop to the knee looked reflex and he followed thru . If he missed a few , big deal, his downrange was clear , except for maybe the shot out the door. But over all a stellar civilian shoot right there. I’d by him a box to restack the mag , and buy him the adult beverage of his choice were he so inclined !!!

From several other threads on Glocktalk about this shooting, it looks like he hit both of them and one of them was hit twice. I only counted about five shots fired by the old man. Pretty good shooting at moving targets with a mouse pistol, IMO.

Do a Glocktalk search for more information.

Even a .380 can sometimes scare them away. The problem is, what if they HADN'T run off?

Great post agree.

Watching the vid I thought the robber with the gun was going to return fire but lucky for the old guy he didn't.

+1. I would not want to be in a two-way firefight armed a pocket fart maker. after watching the video I giggled a little bit when they were scrambling for exit

If they hadn't run off, he'd either have to shoot them some more or take cover, reload, then shoot them some more...same with most other pistols.
Nobody likes being shot, much less being shot at. Thugs aren't reknown for valor.

When they fell over each other while going out the door it reminded me of the 3 stooges.

I read some other articles on it. One guy was shot in the arm and the other guy was shot in the leg and butt (he's the one that ate the floor). The guy that was shot in the leg and butt collapsed as soon as the bullet hit is leg. He later passed out from shock and blood loss. I think the 380s coming out of that firearm did all they could do with the direction they were thrown. I doubt a 9mm, 40, or 45 would have done significantly better with that shot placement.

Main thing is, it worked. And it worked because the old man had it with him. If you can carry a large handgun, by all means do. But if you can't, then get something smaller and make sure it's with you.

I showed my wife the video and she was cracking up the whole time. She actually thought it was staged.

Has anyone figured out what gun he was using? Kinda looks like a Kahr P380.
