I did not see VicMackey make a phone call. Maybe he left phone it in the car? [ I do not know who clerk called. Who are YOU ASSUMING he called?] BTW, 911 does not mind if there is more than 1 caller.
Have you ever been in a similar situation where someone just kept coming at and threatening you?
How do you know the guy didn't say he was going to his car to get a gun?
So the correct tactic is to follow him to the car?
Who are you to criticize the guy's method of carry.
I am a guy on a gun forum and was asked by the OP ( let's discuss what you think the armed citizen did right, and/or wrong.) to discuss. That is who I am and what I am doing.
Just because you do not like open carry for yourself,
You seem to be making a lot of assumptions in order to criticize the armed citizen's "tactics".
I am assuming nothing. Everything is based on what we all see on the tape. You are making assumptions about who the clerk called, whether the guy said he was going to car to get gun,etc., all of this is assumptions on your part. Let's get back to actual facts..
I think it is a shame some seem to be awfully quick to turn on a good Samaritan for trying to help another. Eating out own every chance we get isn't beneficial.
Blame the OP for asking for discussion.
Why are people afraid to discuss tactics employed in a REAL shooting? How are we going to improve ourselves if we do not look for right/wrong in real events?
I am not running from this thread, but after a week of rain I need to cut the grass and I have a lot to cut. Back later.
