When three hunters stopped east of Little Rock, Ark., to check their pickup truck’s oil, a car pulled up and two of its three occupants got out. One of the two men pointed a .22-cal. pistol at hunter Lloyd Taylor and demanded his wallet, whereupon Taylor slammed the door against the robber, knocking the pistol away. Hunter John Rhodes then grabbed a shotgun, jumped from the truck and blasted the second robber in the leg. The other two thugs managed to get away. (The Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock, AR)
