    Now granted, we cant tell shot placment from this article, but between a .38 and presumably a 12ga, any load, maybe even cheap birdshot, probably at near contact range, the perp still managed to walk out under his own power.

    There's no doubt that certain calibers and loads statisticaly work better than others, but this proves that there is no such thing as one-shot-stop calibers, there are only one-shot-stop hits.

    I do not understand why he only fired one shot from his .38 then took the time to switch to another weapon? I think I would have unloaded the .38 before making myself vulnerable buy going for the shotgun.

    I would like to see a follow up on this one. I wonder if the clerk will be charged.

    Didn't say whether or not the BG was under the influence of any controlled substances.

    Bet the clerk buys a .357 and spends a little more time shooting it.

    Rule Violation!

    Corollary to the First Rule of a Gunfight.

    Never bring an air pistol to a gunfight.

    It's a little weird that he would only fire one shot then go for the shotgun. Of course you can't beleive everything you read in the paper...

    Maybe he fired his .38 dry but only hit the BG once. Then switching to the 12 ga would make sense.

    That could explain why it did not stop the guy too. The hit to the "upper torso" could be a grazing shoulder shot for all we know. The man may have been a horrible shot.

    But I thought the rules said that a handgun was what you used to fight your way to a bigger gun?
    It is odd that he only shot once with the .38... but when in danger, people can do very strange things.

    It doesn't say he only shot once, it said he only shot the robber once. He could have missed with the other 5.

    So the clerk had access to a .38 and a 12 gauge?

    Might be one of the worst liquor stores to pick for a robbery...

    Somehow I envision had the police not picked the criminal up a bayonet charge or rifle fire might have been the third stage of response :what: :D

    Is this local newspaper code for trying to say something about Mr. Buck? I don't know, I'm just asking.

    Damn, a .38 and a 12 ga. Just the noise indoors would ruin my day. Joe

    What kind of a guy refuses to put down his fake gun even after being shot?

    It is hard to believe that Buck, from a rural area, did not drop everything he had when the .38 went off at spittin distance. My guess is he was using all his muscle control in another area of his body. So it was right to go for the 12 gauge. Buck, from a rural area, didn’t go down after the shotgun blast but he began to use what little brain power he could muster, he’s from a rural area you know, to get out. Good move Buck, from a rural area, maybe he was trying to return to the rural area, you think.
    Buck, who is from a rural area, is lucky the police were there to get him to the city hospital. So, they rushed Buck, who is from a rural area, to the city hospital. I wonder in the city hospital do they speak his language, he’s rural you know.
    I am just making fun of the reporter. What could be pertinent about being from a rural area. I grew up near Hugo and now live in a big city. Apparently the reporter doesn’t get out much. I am glad the clerk is ok and that Buck, who is rural, is going to make it to go back to his rural roots. And mend his rural ways I hope. Sorry :)

    No question about that! I remember a few years back a brown bear charged some fishermen. The fellow with the shotgun THREW IT at the bear even before shooting it! It turned out the guy with a little 9mm sidearm actually ended up stopping the charge.
