    I own a pawnshop with my wife. We both work there. This just happened about 45 mins ago.
    Three young men come into my store and start lurking. I have other customers in here. My wife is in the back room separated by a 2 way mirror.
    All the customers have now gone and it is just the three young men.
    I guess she is watching better than I am, because all of a sudden I hear the charging handle on the AR15 in back of the store go.
    The three young men who had been lurking till all the other customers left just ran out, leaving a box cutter behind.

    Good for her (you've got a keeper, for sure). Glad no one was hurt, and you guys are both okay!

    You sure they weren't with UPS and had a delivery from Yeomen? Maybe it was a complimentary box knife from Brown?

    I am glad it didn't escalate, but who in their right mind tries to take off a pwan shop with a box cutter?

    So I take it they stole the gun? Did you report it to the police?

    No I am sorry I am actually kind of keyed up right now, so I am not getting this out right.
    My wife is the one who charged an AR when she saw this kid take a box cutter out of his pocket.

    Excellent outcome, what a gal.
    I hope there are prints and video for the police to track
    down the scumbags. Best of luck.
    I had a friend who ran a pawn shop for several years.
    When I would go and visit him, I always packed my G21
    and kept a third eye on folks coming in and out.
    You just never know when it will happen.

    Glad everyone is safe.

    She saw he had abox cutter.. meaning he was going to cut some security cord and steal something or he was at the counter and about to cut you up? Not MMQB, just picturing.

    You take that woman out for a good dinner tonight. Gotta love a woman who not only has your back but scares the bejeezus out of young ner-do-wells with the flick of a wrist (as it were).

    She sounds like a keeper. Just DO NOT piss her off!

    I mean if you could all see her. she is so teensy. and she was in the back room of the store....working on her dollhouse. I guess she pays more attention than i thought.
    ETA I am so thankful she did not have to fire.

    This all happened while I was writing in on a forum here on GT. See what happens when you GT at work. You miss the gunplay...
