Imagine it’s a Saturday morning, and you need to go to the local auto parts store to pick up oil and filter so you can change the oil in your wife’s car. Sure you rather be fishing or even at a local range, but when the honey-do list is set, there is no way around it. You arrive at the store, and get the filter and oil simply standing in line when a wood-be masked robber comes in wielding a .357 magnum revolver, demanding cash. Another customer responds by taking his legally concealed firearm, shots were fired. A window was shot, and the would-be robber is wounded in the leg. The robber is stumbles out into the parking lot, where the police later catch up with him.
How would you respond to this situation? Would you thank the customer that was legally carrying concealed, or would you publicly belittle his actions?

Most of those were also former, retired or active duty military, which makes sense for some of the best marksmen to come from the worlds best military.
