    AMATEUR MEETS EXPERT: The manager of Action Video in Greensboro, N.C.,
    looked at the gun held by the robber in front of him. "That is not a
    real gun," Ron Simpson told the robber. "This is a real gun," he added
    as he pulled out his own gun, which he has a permit to carry. The
    surprised robber grabbed a candy rack to use as a shield. "Like that's
    going to stop the bullet," Simpson told him as he picked up the phone
    to call police. The robber ran. "Police don't suggest this, I know,"
    Simpson said later, but "I'd do it again." (Greensboro News & Record)

    You know what I found out watching "Myth Busters" on Discovery that 90% of the Darwin awards are just urban myths!!!
    I knew that whole rocket truck thing sounded like hoey, I mean sheesh solid rocket booster are not light, it would have crushed in the roof of the pick up, and no ammount of welding would secure one down well enough to keep the rocket from flying off.

    A local bartender, some years ago, was accosted by a man who produced a pistol and demanded the cash from the register. Bartender took a quick glance and thought "air pistol". He reached under the bar for his sawed off baseball bat and pounded the robber's forearm until he droped the pistol and ran.
    The police officer investigating picked up the pistol and said: "Japanese Nambu. Loaded."
    The bartender had fainted and lay on the floor.
    Guess it goes both ways.

    We have dumb crooks too in my area. As a Police Dept. Watch Commander I have to laugh at some of these numbskulls. Last year a crook walked into a gas station owned and operated by an asian gentleman, who has no sense of humor. The would be robber produced his rifle from the sack, later determined to be a "Red Rider BB Gun" and pointed it at the clerk. The clerk promptly grabbed his Samurai sword and jumped the counter swinging methodically and decisively at the bad guy. :eek:

    We never did catch that guy, but we did find a piece of his coat shaved off of him by one sharp sword. LMAO. We still laugh at about this guy, whomever he is. :D
