She just sent this our way.    Looks like a .380 was used, his tactics could use a little work, but  this old dude held his ground.

i can almost hear his thoughts: "you like that? :bang: how bout some more? :bang bang bang: maybe just a bit more. :bang bang:..... :bang:"



the advance while firing surely showed a bit of violence of action to overwhelm them more than they were..

Am I the only one who thinks this is hilarious?  Old man gives ZERO FUCKS.  Those kids are climbing over each other to get away.   What's that saying about old men?  Never pick a fight with them cause they'll just kill you?

OP, would you mind asking (after congratulating, of course) the gentleman his method of carry?  At the 32 second mark, he was already palming it but I couldn't see the draw.  Just curious.  Good aggression on his part, damned stupid mistakes/underestimations by the hoodie brigade.

Good shoot, moving targets are hard to hit, even with a larger caliber the shots probably wouldn't have been fatal. I mean who dies from being grazed in the arm or shot in the ass. The video of the perp sitting on a donut pillow would be priceless though.

What would you have done differently?  I think he did great, he watched the gunman turn his back and come up as close as he could and then opened fire.  He kept advancing while there was a threat, he managed to not hit anyone else.  He didn't allow them to regroup and come back - he kicked their ass.

He has me rethinking my 5 shot .357 360pd.  Though I think the impact of 357 >> 380 but hmmm really need to think about this.

Good work.

I'd go with a larger caliber, but if he's comfortable with it and he will actually carry it more power to him.

Besides, it got the job done here.

Sure, if you want to assume that the alternative to carrying a gun in a reasonable defensive caliber is to simply not carry anything, but that's a bullshit premise and you know it, especially in today's world where you can carry a full power 9mm for the same weight/size or marginally more.
Would it work better than the .45 in a holster on his person? How about better than a 9mm in his pocket?  Etc. Etc.
Point being, .380 is a shitty defensive caliber.

What impressed me was how he watched his muzzle, timed his shots, and advanced to fill space to avoid hitting the women milling about.  And he immediately looked around after they got out the door to assess the situation.  I also noticed he properly indexed his trigger finger on the frame, as if by training, after he stopped shooting, until he looked at his pistol, then, for some reason, he placed his finger back on the trigger.  



He appeared to be point shooting to increasing degrees as the range decreased- just an observation, not a criticism.










In this case, the gun he had was better than the gun he didn't.

Point being, .380 works at running off foul play.

How are you aruging that it's a shitty defensive caliber when you just watched a video of it being used and working just fine?


EDIT*** It is a shitty defensive caliber.

I agree that there are better calibers.  However, considering where the perps were hit, a .45 wouldn't have resulted in any greater "effectiveness".  In this case, that .380 stopped BOTH threats immediately so your premise that it is a "shitty" defensive caliber simply doesn't carry water in this case.  I wonder how many other CHL's were in that room wishing they had the gun they left at home.
