A store manager got the drop on two alleged criminals in Dublin, Ga. While the manager was going to his vehicle to retrieve something, two men in their early 20s approached from behind. Brandishing a gun, one of the men demanded that the manager give over his valuables and made him sit in the car. The armed citizen played along before retrieving a revolver and firing three shots in their direction, hitting one while the other ran away. Both men were eventually caught and charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault. (The Courier Herald, Dublin, GA, 2/7/17)

A convenience store clerk turned the tables when an armed masked man barged into the 7-Eleven where she was working and demanded money. After the clerk gave the burglar an undisclosed amount of money, he then forced her outside of the store at gunpoint. Luckily, she had her own firearm and was able to retrieve it and fire it at her abductor, hitting him with multiple shots. The criminal was taken to a hospital and charged with armed robbery, abduction, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and wearing a mask in public. The store clerk was not harmed.

When two bandits said, “It’s a stickup; everybody stay put,” Los Angeles jewelry clerk Kenneth Walton lunged for the cal. .38 revolver he keeps handy on top of the safe. One bandit scuffled with Walton, bit him on the arm, and Walton fired three times. The robber fell with a bullet in his heart and the accomplice fled during the melee.
