Is shooting through a jacket pocket a good idea? Perhaps it is, if the experience of this mugging victim are considered. Pocket shooting is a technique to be practiced, so checkout the video and decide if the technique is for you.
MOBILE, Alab. – A concealed carrier was the victim of an armed robbery on Monday night, and when the bad guy grabbed for his wallet, he went for his gun.
The concealed carrier who had his handgun in a jacket pocket fired several shots, through the pocket, fatally striking Clark twice in the chest.
Adrian Moorer who witnessed part of the incident stated:
“We were watching Monday Night Raw and we heard about 3 or 4 shots go off in the area. We look out the window and the next thing we see is the shooter walking over there with his gun out. I had to stop my girlfriend who was on her way over to see what was going on. I advised her to get down and stay down. We didn’t know what was going on. Come to find out, the guy was trying to rob him. It really makes me think twice about being safe and stuff. I think I might have to go out and buy a gun now.”
Surely this will be ruled self-defense, right?
