    "According to the report, the customer -- a 57-year-old grandfather -- and two store employees were inside the Dollar General store Monday around 9 p.m. when two armed men entered the store with the intention to rob it."

    "The customer, who has a concealed weapon permit, shot and killed one of the intruders, FirstCoastNews.com reported."

    The link:
    “He shoots in competitions, but this is the first time he’s ever killed anyone and I don’t know how he’ll handle that.”
    An officer friend gave me a list of things to stay away from post shooting: Drugs, Alcohol, get plenty of sleep, and if you need to talk to someone, don't me afraid to reach out. Shooting another human being is a violent thing, no matter how you dice it.

    Hope the man is well. BTW, nice shot!

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    +1. Well said.
    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Ah, I posted too, as well, in Real tales- sorry for double-post.
    But- Local response to this by most has been overwhelmingly supportive. Place that was robbed is about 10 minutes from me.

    I am under the impression the other perp wasn't caught; has he been apprehended yet?

    Not as far as we've heard, yet. No accurate discription of the get-away veh. yet, either, so.. doubt there will be much happening on that end.
    Let's hope for now, that Homie is hunkered-down somewhere scraping the dung out of his boxers..
