Oh, wait a minute...He didn't have a gun, but still didn't succumb to the jacker with a shotgun!

At the very least, it is an amusing story.

This is one incident, it proves nothing.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine...

The thing I find odd is that there is sound. I didn't think most cameras like that had sound.

Yeah, he starts running away the instant the guy bats the gun with his arm.

How long would you stick around if someone was pointing a gun at you? If only he had a concealed gun to counter losing his shotgun to that guy that was defending himself.

The robber's graceful and perfectly timed passing of the shot-gun to the victim reminded me of practiced runner handing off a baton in a relay race.

He started running before it was even pointed at him. And he didn't even struggle to hold onto it.

Edit: actually, watching again, the gun is never pointed at him - the victim didn't turn it around after he grabbed it. But the robber did try to hold onto it for a second, with one hand, as he was running away (like a relay race baton hand-off as Elinda noted).

Why the **** would you wait until someone is pointing a weapon at you?

Well, if I already had a hand on it, I'd probably stake my bet on fighting for it rather than running straight away and risking a back full of buckshot.

But he didn't have a hand on it. His grip was loose and he lost complete control over the weapon. I'm not contending the original guy wasn't a moron, because he clearly was. Just the whole "Oh well I'd stick around because my ********* are steel" nonsense. I'd rather be four or five seconds into a sprint than be standing right in front of it.

Watch the video again - he's got a hand on it for most of the way towards the bottom of the picture. Relay baton-style, like the others said.

He loses all control of the weapon at 0:16. One hand loosely on the stock, at that point he had no chance of regaining control.

Just to note: Riot training protocol states that you release the weapon at that point and let someone near you dispatch the attacker.

I'd not expect street muggers to have completed their riot training requirements.

I would imagine that the odds of surviving is higher fleeing than it is to fight over the weapon was common sense, but it appears I have an overactive imagination.

I'm not questioning the smartness of the decision to run away, I'm questioning the timing and instaneous nature of his response.

Quote:
A 2-year-old Kentucky girl was accidentally killed by her 5-year-old brother who fired a rifle he had been given as a gift, officials said Wednesday.

Cumberland County Coroner Gary L. White said an autopsy of Caroline Starks showed the toddler had died from a single shot from the .22-caliber rifle. The death has been ruled accidental and no charges will be filed, he said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times.

The rifle used in the accident is a Crickett designed for children and sold under the slogan “My First Rifle,” according to the company's website.

“The little Crickett rifle is a single-shot rifle and it has a child safety,” White said. “This was just a tragic accident.”

That's just sad. Not only is little sis dead, but big bro is probably gonna be emotionally screwed for the rest of his life.

I still think the op video is staged. It's only reported here through some guys blog.

Yeah I'm just using the first person in the - if I was that idiot, and this wasn't fake - kinda way.

The behavior just looks odd, your super-cool riot training nonwithstanding.
