Good shooting, lousy tactics

Amusing video of an armed security guard shooting two robbers armed with fake guns. His shooting was quite good, but his tactics left a lot to be desired. He got too close to the robbers after the shooting was over, even though at least one of them was still standing and active. He even takes his eyes off the standing robber to pick up a gun. Still it all worked out in the end.

It's bad form, I know, but I always laugh when I see videos of street level criminals taking bullets.

It's also interesting to see the security guard carrying a six-gun. Even in this day and age, revolvers haven't completely left the holsters of those who carry a gun for a living.

It's a private security guard; that's probably a leftover from the 70s that they won't replace because it still works.

That's possible, but there is also a chance that the gun is privately owned. When I worked in private security, I carried my own gun at most job sites. The only time I ever carried a company-issued gun was when I was when I worked in a government building.

No FTF's or FTE's.

Yep, if it wasn't for those damn heavy double action triggers, I'd be happy to carry a revolver myself. Really after 120 years, you'd think someone would be able to make a DA revolver with a trigger that isn't horrible.

Cocking the hammer on draw becomes second nature. My S&W 686 .357 is a sweet beautiful SA trigger. My S&W 442 .38 has positively the worst trigger ever. I guess that's the safety.
