A pair of armed robbers attempted to hold up a gun shop in Georgia, and while most of us would think the owners of the store might be armed themselves, these two criminal masterminds were completely caught off guard.

The criminal duo stormed the Dixie Gun and Pawn in Mableton, Georgia shouting at employees “Get down on the floor or I will kill you!”

64-year-old Jimmy Groover, the owner of the shop, surprisingly had his own weapon within arm’s length and calmly started firing at the robbers.

And surveillance footage caught the entire scene (Warning: Graphic Content) …


Praise for Groover’s actions could be found across the country:

Not to mention, mockery for the would-be armed robbers:

Police have indicated that charges are not likely to be filed for Groover’s act of self-defense.

“I never wanted this to happen,” Groover explained, “but I want to go home at night, too.”
