Dixie pawn video - 1911 used by GG

This isn't bloody but it does show one of the perps drop like a sack of potatoes after taking a round COM. I saw this on another forum but didn't see it here... a 1911 is used by the good guy, so I thought a link here would be appropriate.

Good shooting by the man behind the counter.

Having to draw against a drawn gun, and neutralized the perp. Looks like perp got a low shot off that shattered the glass counter.

A friend sent that to me in an email a few days ago. Happy ending!!

I've watched that video a few times. It looks like the GG got three shots off on the dead guy.

Damn fast splits if you ask me.

What an Einstein! A stupid perp , gun drawn, goes into a gun store to rob it. The dead rat is a prime candidate for a Darin Award. I suppose the owner, at least by his commentary, will suffer some hard times as a result. And that is a terrible result. Me, I'd bill the family of the corpse for the window and any other damage. I would have no issues with sending trash back to the Creator. He has made some bad machines and I think it fair to send them home for adjustment or replacement.

Seems that Bad Guy #1 had two guns & was drawing the second one (to look more Bad Ass?) when he got shot.

It does illustrate and highlight the importance of a well placed shot. He was incapacitated before he even hit the floor.

I haven't seen any commentary by the owner. Where did you find it? Why will he suffer hard times?

Nice self-defense shooting. Proof you can't hesitate, not for a split second.

A reporter was trying to interview the owner and he seemed to be in a minor state of shock,couldn't articulate words to describe his feelings. I saw a genuine regret that he ended the pos. Small community in the south --feelings/opinions will be hard assed on both sides,southerners carry grudges (and pride) forever and will fight to the death over difference of opinion.

There's already a thread on this in Armed Citizen, merged together from several other ones: https://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=710337

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1946 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
