Yeah, awesome.

Quick grandpa, fire off some shots inches from that womans head in a crowded room. Great, cross that one off the list.

Now make sure you follow them, and fire a shot through an open door into the street. Did that too? Perfect.

Grandpas hand isn’t looking to steady there. So what happens when in trying to save the day good ol gramps empty’s a woman’s skull while trying to save the 50 bucks in his pocket?

Another reason why gun owner ship should be limited, and people with this level of common sense shouldn’t own one.

(Not sure if the video on CNN is showing what Im seeing, cant get it to work. Just watch “Elderly Man shoots at two robbers inside internet café” on youtube)

Seems to me like Grandpa totally knew what he was doing -- his firing stance looked good (esp given his age), he seems to be aiming for the non-vital lower body parts (the teens got shot at the leg, buttock, and arm).

There is definitely some fire left in that old man...

he was stupid imo, could have caused waaay more damage... Especially with those patrons on their feet caught in the middle... If you notice those guys unload their guns when they're outside.. You can see them firing into the store, luckily no one was hit

^^^ oh the CNN video doesn't show the full clip

check the one 1exotic posted in nsfw



@ 0:45 seconds after the old man shoots out the door you see those pufts (of broken glass im assuming) and the old guy steps back; could be wrong but certainly looks like it

What I mean was he's lucky he didn't fuck with the type of robbers who WOULD shoot back inside.

I thought for a second that this happened in Canada. I was thinking, this guy is fucked now!

It was in Florida, gramps will be a hero.

No doubt.
He does it right, his first shot he took careful aim and squeezed one off. One cool customer.

It was fun watching panicked punks, gunshots = brown note

That grandpa took half a dozen shots at less than a 3 meter range and didn't manage to hit anything? It's good that he had the situation under control but that aim.

Handclap to grampa. If there were more people like him, there would be less punks running around trying to commit crimes against innocent citizens. Too bad the criminals are still alive.

Because people are stupid. Shots fired = down on the floor or behind cover or both.
