The victim shooter needs a Go-Fund-Me for more ammo.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

Are they hoping to cover the lost "income" from the robbery? How much does the average 71 year old man carry, maybe $40 or $50? They should be able to cover that pretty easily.

Otherwise known as disparity of force, and age can certainly come in handy when invoking that defense.

What was it Al Capone said?

"You can steal more money with a go fund me account than with a gun."

Something like that.
Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

Good grief!!! :banghead:

But age is a valuable "card" when justifying disparity of force.

I'm 57, which isn't old in the strictest sense, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a defense.
