"This is a video of a real self defense incident that happened today in northern Phoenix AZ involving 2 of my friends 1 being a disabled combat veteran (the one shooting the video) on their way back they had noticed 2 guys attempting to steal his truck, when they were spotted, they began to shoot at JR and Will, JR and Will returned fire wounding 1 individual, both are now in jail. JR and Will are not injured and have been cleared of any wrong doing."

My bad. Misread that. But that is still crazy scary stuff. He definitely had his composure though, which is impressive.

Silence, mortal civilian! He is former military and everyone knows that military/police are all endowed with magical gps-tracking-guided-laser-shark bullet technology that you and I wouldn't understand! =)

Scary stuff. It would be interesting to read the police reports. His training certainly kicked in. Hopefully the crooks get nice long jail sentences. Highly doubtful I would be that calm but it does go to show training and training often is key if you are going to carry a weapon.

That video illustrates why i cancelled my scottsdale gun club membership and now train in the desert. Shooting at a static target on an indoor range is only serving to improve your ability to shoot at a static target and get shot yourself because youre creating muscle memory of just standing there.

It's imperitive to move, seek cover, make yourself a smaller target, etc.

I would have run down the hill screaming at them, and been shot. Dropping onto his back, eliminating their target profile, then shooting down his side at them. Impressive, most impressive.

Obviously, he didn't own an FJ or he wouldn't have been shooting towards it. This shows the importance of being prepared and using proper technique; he should have used tripods, 2 cameras and included a follow-up video. Oh, and good shooting!
