Carolina Gun Guy says:

This guy mayo been after after the bread but the sandwich shop employees said "Lettuce go, man." Then the gouda guy saved everyone's bacon and the bad guy was toast.

Truth Hurts says:

So the girl thinks she out of danger when the perp surrenders. She tries to exit the kitchen to get out of the shooting range but instead at 5:25 she notices the guy is surrendering and she starts pushing him and acting tough following him out the store yelling at him. The noob with the gun orders the perp outside and the perp gets out the door and runs away.. lots of fails in this situation.

RDH says:

Let a felon go? Seems like the best thing would have been to detain him and call police.

Steve Thompson says:

this Joseph guy could have easily got the 'third party" folks or himself killed in a shootout. If I was inside, I would have wanted this amateur gun guy to stay in his car

Eric Gorton says:

Nothing about the women shadowing the bad guys every step. She was the self defenders backstop through the entire video. When the perp left she put herself in between them. Some people have 0 sense.

Link to news article?

jalsr.speak237 says:

Thank you for this proof that guns save lives.

AllynHin says:

How obvious was it that the blonde was an accomplice.

evan wedge says:

"evidence based defensive trainer" is just a fancy way of saying "reaction channel"

Joseph Gagaridis says:

We need more Joseph's Around

Operator 9037 says:

She’s an accomplice, super calm…Then she sees the good guy with a real gun, and runs like a mother fucker!

fightthefuture says:

Same comment here, why was this stupid chick shadowing the perp all the way to when he leaves!?

seeingthru says:

Don’t think he should use the guys first name. Joseph, (repeatedly)and plus already telling where it’s happened. Don’t think I’ve heard the name Joseph so much

j h says:

Who the fuck is Joseph


Really Joseph? Why not hold him and call the cops?

Reckless Eyeballer says:

Say Joseph stands at the door and the unarmed man starts coming in his direction to exit, is it legal to shoot? In my opinion if you allow someone like that to close the distance it will give them an opportunity to try and take your weapon.

Stephen Price says:

Hmmmm…Glad no innocents were hurt

Setting Sun says:

Drop him before he drops you..or he kidnaps someone..Bad guys belong 6ft under.

Victor Sinclair says:

I love your advice John, but you make me doubt your SME credibility if you literally held a freeze frame of Joseph muzzling the blonde and didn't mention it. There were more lessons to learn in this video, but I'll give you credit that the only reason I'm able to spot the issues in weapon handling is because you have done such a great job pointing this exact thing out in the past.

Timothy Sawyer-Garza says:

I am Sam. I mean Joseph
