    TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - A botched robbery attempt in midtown Tucson has left a
    suspect with at least one life-threatening gunshot wound.

    An 18-year-old man tried to rob a man at a car wash at 22nd and Beverly --
    that's when the victim shot at the suspect, hitting him at least once,
    police say.

    The 18-year-old was driven to the hospital by another person.

    All I have to say is good job.
    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

    I've since heard that the perp took a round in his femoral artery (leg)... which is why his partner took him to a hospital (where they were both arrested) 'cause he was bleedin' out. Both of 'em were 'gang bangers'. I suspect that the intended victim was OC... 'cause the perp had a pistol. He must not have noticed his targets gun. This was in a car wash.

    Note... this is a red flag that you (we) can get jacked up anywhere.... anytime... doing even the most mundane of things.

    Anyone from OCDO, perhaps?

    Since the attacker had a gun, HankT's Postulate of Civilian Self-Defense© does not apply. Whew!

    Yeah... me. Focus is everything. Assess... react (draw-aim) and shoot if you have to. Neutralize the threat. Watch your back afterward (literally). It ain't over 'til it's over when the scene is secured 'n you're someplace else.

    Wow, just the way you explained it gave me the chills. No matter how much someone thinks they may be prepared, I believe that you will never find out until it comes down to the real deal. I'm glad you had yourfirearm there with you.

    You drew a gun on an armed person? Did you have to shoot?

    No... two events. A pistol and a pickaxe. Then there was a mass shootout with a barracade situation... but they wouldn't let me shoot the guy. Touchy-feely PR 'n all that. Got a cop killed 'n 3-4 wounded bad. That sucked balls... That didn't have to happen. 'Couple of us had good LOS on him. I had the shotgun w/slugs... about 50' out 'n got a 'No Fire' order.

    There were some others... I 'mean 'Drop it or I'll shoot you' stuff... 'n they 'dropped it. 'Couple times I had to bail outta the cruiser doin' a parking brake stop 'n jack up a suspect 'gun in hand'. You have to do that quick 'n put the FEAR in them before they can reach for anything. This is why CC is not a tactical surprise. The suprise will always be with the attacker.

    Then there was 'Nam... but that was a whole 'nuther ballgame with serious toys.

    Had some dude pull a knife onna rookie one nite 'n the kid shot the perps Johnson off... clean off. Hip shot.The EMT's kicked it in the gutter 'n stepped on it. (Gotta love the Fire Department).

    Yeh... not your average school to stool. There were times when the issue was in doubt... but close only counts with horse shoes 'n hand grenades. My other passions have been totake all risks and drive as fast as possible... This is my final effort:
