Bishop, Texas, April 5 - Two machine gun bandits were routed in a gun
battle at the First State bank here today by Cashier William A. Harlan
and his assistant, Leon Hagan. No one was injured. The bandits held
the trigger down on their machine gun while the two bankers emptied
their two automatics.

Several years ago Guns and Ammo Annual had a good article "When Banks fought Back!" The Feds even donated some of the guns used by the banks back then.

When I lived in Iowa there was the SMALL town of Cylinder west of where I lived that had a small bank that was supposed to have pock marks in the front from a Dillenger robbery in the 30's.

4 people in close quarters with fully automatic weapons.... no injuries. Good to know the criminals couldn't shoot any better back then.
