Pearl Ferguson, a Sacramento, Calif., veteran of four previous holdups in her little grocery store, was accosted by an armed thug who said, "This is a stickup." "Go ahead and shoot," she replied. As the gunman edged towards her, Mrs. Ferguson reached for a hidden pistol, cocked it, and pointed it at the startled bandit. He fled into the street shouting, "Don't shoot, I give up, I give up."
