Chris had a run-in with 2 very unlucky would-be car jackers in '09.

From Marcus Luttrell's book 'Service: a Navy SEAL at War.'

Quote:
Chris was minding his own business, fueling his pickup truck at a gas station, when he found himself at gunpoint. Two men holding pistols demanded his truck. Law enforcement will usually advise you to give in to the criminal in a situation like this. And that’s good advice. But Chris took another route.

Very calmly and coolly, he sized up which of the men was handling his pistol more comfortably. He put his hands up and told them he was going to reach into the truck to get his keys. Then his hand went under his coat. From a waistband holster, he pulled his Colt 1911. Swinging the pistol under his left armpit, he gave each robber two .45 caliber Hydra-Shock hollow-points to the chest. By the time the cops responded to the 911 call from the terrified lady who had locked herself in a car behind Chris’s truck, the matter was settled.

Elapsed time: about ten seconds. The service station’s security cameras caught the whole thing.

I pray for anyone whose life gets so desperate that he or she chooses to resort to a life of crime, but it’s hard to resist a little cold laughter all the same: I mean, how unlucky a dumbass do you have to be to target a random guy for felony armed assault and find out he’s killed more people than smallpox?
http://statelymcdanielmanor.wordpres...-a-good-laugh/

Personally, I'd pay to view the security camera footage of this incident.

Well done.

I hear you but I just can't understand how any man or woman could have something negative to say about a hero who puts our lives before his own. I am just baffled

I'm not sure I would characterize an honorably discharged veteran who served our country as a "freak"......

I work with a couple of organizations who help vets with physical and mental disabilities get outdoors and hunt and shoot. Your uninformed opinion on the matter is sad.

WTF is wrong with people. Made it out of that flaming s-hole only to be killed by some ********* who "has PTSD" on home soil. Hmmm, I've got PTSD, so let's go to the range and listen to a lot a guns going off... Pure speculation on my part of course. Chris, may you RIP and your assailant rot in hell.

Wow. So you think all the veterans who proudly served our country to protect our freedoms should loose them because they come.back with a few issues? Its a really sad day because we lost a great American and another man, but I bet you Chris would roll over in his grave and slap the **** out of you for that comment. They aren't freaks.

WTF. I was just posting about the disgusting comments some people have been making about this tragic loss

http://twitchy.com/2013/02/03/twiste...im-chris-kyle/


I did NOT expect this kind of disgusting stuff here on GT.

You have the right to your opinion. Respect, courtesy and honor should have led you to keep them to yourself.

What is the over/under that the Feds had something to do with this?

Are you new to Glock Talk? Or the internet?

This is where people who live in their mom's basement come to get brave and show how much they resent their betters.

Uh, yeah, we have seen so many hundreds of thousands of vets with PTSD snapping and wiping out thousands upon thousands of people.

People need to do some research on a topic before showing their ignorance.

I'm just so pissed off that someone would disrespect such a patriot!
