One of my favorite defensive gun uses and another great analysis by Front Sight. Not sure I agree there was a Rule 4 violation — kids definitely not in the way, looks close for the guy sitting at the end but he deserves to be shot for failing to be armed.
This situation may have called for an upward-angled head shot from kneeling position. That would have made the 180 degree threat environment Front Sight mentions even more risky, but I’m not entirely sure about that supposed threat line, either, as bad guy #2 disappears from video while CCW customer engages and I doubt he would have engaged at all unless bad guy #2 was either gone or at least turned around. Maybe he found a good magazine. Or clip. Barbershops are full of distractions.
CCW barber was reckless, of course. As the bad guy was running away, his engagement was not needed (though we sure could have used him in Seal Beach a few years ago).
If attacked, do you want to be Victor or Victim?
