I thought this robbery/video had been posted on the Forum, but I can't find it.

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you conclusive proof that the 1911 in .45ACP is still king of the battlefield. Note that, unlike girly rounds like the 9mm, the .45ACP put the bad guy down forthwith and no innocent blood was spilled. He did not run, he did not return fire, he didn't even stagger. He simply fell dead dropping his two weapons while doing so. I am happy to say that the long-running, indeed perennial, "caliber wars" has finally come to an end. The world is now on notice that the 1911 .45ACP is the clear winner and everything else is merely an "also ran," a footnote in the Annals of Survival.

Chas.
P.S. This is going to be a hoot!!!

Probably still running. Wonder if he stopped to clean out his underwear …

I bet the dude he was shooting past needed to change his drawers.

I was wondering if he was shooting cast bullets!

Of all the possible places you could rob, why would a BG choose a place where the employees are likely to be armed and proficient in the use of guns?

Boom - splat.

As for the smoke - my guess is simply residue on the camera's lens; it's not moving.

He was just cycling his self-defense ammo for a fresh load.

I've worked in the prison system for 20+ years now. VERY often I see offenders with scars from bullets wounds. When asked about the scars I hear replies like "yep, got me with a 9", "3 times with a 380 and I'm still here", or "hit with a 40 but I'm tough". I have rarely spoken to an offender who has scars from a 45. Wonder why?
