As NRA Life Member Rex Burroughs drove away from a Lander,
Wyo., restaurant, two men pulled up, blocked his car, and demanded
money at gunpoint. When the driver yelled "kill him," his partner
aimed and pulled the trigger. The gun failed to fire, and Burroughs
was able to draw his own revolver and shoot the gunman. The robbers
then sped off.
