Frank Guido was in the back of his Bronx liquor store when two bandits brandishing guns herded his clerk to the rear. Guido picked up his .38-cal. revolver from a shelf, tucked it in the belt under his sweater and awaited the gunmen. “These bums told the clerk and me to lie on the floor,” said Guido. “Then one of them said, ‘Get up and open the register!’” Guido got up, pulled his gun and started firing. He hit both thieves in the head. (New York Daily News, New York City, N.Y.)
