The thief had plenty of time to plan his attack. The guard might have been better off at the top of the stair case.
Well his bluff worked.The impression I got from that was that the thief had an empty gun. He shows up, points his gun at the guard, takes the guard's gun, racks the guard's gun to put a round in the chamber, and then puts his gun away.
I suppose he could have done that so if he ended up shooting the guard his gun's ballistics would not end up in police custody.
But I still believe he had an empty gun, and bluffed the guard.
Me too, I'm old and slow.I won't open carry because with my bad hearing someone could sneak up behind me and grab it out of the holster before I could do anything about it.
