Oh, man.  I love stuff like this.  You hear so many stories of low-lifes robbing people or places and getting away with it. Not this time.

The would-be robber walked into a store and pulled a gun on the clerk.  What he didn't plan for was the guy behind the counter was an Iraq veteran with 30 years in the military, who had also been a prison guard, P.I. and a gun owner.

...used his left hand to push the robber’s handgun back while — in a smooth but rapid motion — pulling and swinging his 9 mm into the robber’s face. The man’s mouth to be exact, as the robber haplessly holds his own weapon at his side.

The man came in the store smoking a cigarette, and Alexander said he quickly explained that was against the rules. Within seconds, the man in a gray T-shirt was at the counter, demanding “all the (expletive deleted) money.”

And this might be my FAVORITE quote ever...

He didn’t tell his wife what happened right away but she eventually saw the video. “It took her a while to calm down,” he said. “But I got all kinds of lovin’ when she came home.”
