Greg "Lumpy" Lambert competes in quick-draw pistol competitions, and it served him well the other day.
Here is what a friend of "Lumpy's" had to say.
The customer went out side to smoke a cigarette. Lumpy went outside to tell him it was time to do some paper work. When the man came back in Lumpy had a bad feeling and had his hand on his gun he keeps on him at most all times. The man started to pull his gun.....Bad move. Lumpy does quick draw competitions for fun and had his gun pointing down the criminals throat before the criminal had his own gun half drawn. After some harsh words the criminal dropped his gun.Since Mr. Lambert had his driver's license, the goblin had more than a little incentive to kill the only witness.
So why select this business? It was mistake, apparently; the police caught up the goblin later and arrested him.
This is what gunwriter Massad Ayoob likes to call "a failure of the victim selection process."As many have pointed out, this is another defensive use of a handgun that resulted in no shots being fired, no one hurt or killed.
Here's the basic story from the local paper.
