The Armed Citizen® February 23, 2012

Food delivery drivers have statistically one of the 10 most dangerous jobs in America. Whether that weighed on the mind of a Papa John’s delivery driver when he obtained a concealed-carry permit isn’t clear, but he was glad he did when a man stuck a stolen pistol through his car window and said, “What you gonna do is drop off that money.” The driver drew a .38-cal. revolver and emptied the cylinder. The wounded assailant dropped his pistol and ran into a house across the street, where he was found by police. (The Commercial Appeal, Memphis, TN, 11/05/11)

(The following account did not appear in the print version of American Rifleman.)

A Michigan homeowner awoke late one night to the sound of breaking glass and discovered someone had broken into his home. He retrieved a 12-gauge shotgun and called 9-1-1, and shortly after came in contact with the suspect. The homeowner shouted for the suspect to stop and get down, but when the suspect continued to advance toward him, the homeowner fired several shots. The suspect, who was on parole at the time of the crime, was treated at a nearby hospital and faced charges upon his release. (The Grand Rapids Press, Paris, MI, 12/08/10)

From The Armed Citizen Archives

February 1977: An armed robber made the mistake of holding up Jack Moga's Milwaukee, Wis., tavern twice in a week. Though the crook got away with his loot the first time, Moga was prepared when the greedy criminal came back for more, and shot him in the head. A local judge complimented Moga's marksmanship, saying "I think you are going to be free of armed robberies in the future." (The Sentinel, Milwaukee, Wis.)
