The Armed Citizen

As a York City, Pa., restaurant was closing on the night of Jan. 3, an unknown armed man broke into the business and demanded money from the register. The restaurant owner was in the back of the business when he heard the intruder threatening his wife and son. The armed citizen ran to the front of the restaurant and fatally shot the robber. (, York, Pa., 1/5/22)

Two men agreed to meet up in Humboldt Park on the west side of Chicago, Ill., the evening of Jan. 5, to exchange a pair of shoes for money. According to police, the 18-year-old shoe seller asked to see the money before he would hand over the shoes. As the 28-year-old purchaser reached in his pocket to get the cash, the seller allegedly drew his firearm, shooting the victim in the shoulder. The victim, who is a concealed-carry license holder, drew his own gun and shot back at the attacker, striking him in the hand, before attempting to drive away, but ultimately crashing into a parked car. The alleged attacker was taken into custody and both men were taken to a nearby hospital and listed in good condition. (, Chicago, Ill., 1/5/22)

A 32-year-old healthcare worker turned the tables on a would-be carjacker just before midnight on Jan. 10. Upon arriving for work at the home of a patient, the healthcare worker was confronted by an 18-year-old man who allegedly pulled a gun on him. The suspect approached the vehicle on the driver side and drew his firearm. The worker, who had a valid license to carry, drew his own firearm and shot the suspect through his car window, causing him to run away. While investigating, the authorities were notified that a suspect who somewhat matched the description of the perpetrator was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds to the cheek, neck and thumb, where they subsequently arrested him. (, Philadelphia, Pa., 1/11/22)

Gun Skills: Shooting from Retreat

Shooting at a stationary target doesn't represent a defensive situation; it's important to "get off the X." But even when we do, we often forget rearward motion as an option.
