Florida bartender Louis Place left work at the end of his
shift one morning with his tips and a .40-cal. handgun he kept
tucked in his waistband. As he was about to get into his truck,
Place was accosted by four men, one of whom demanded, "Show me the
money." The men kicked and punched Place, who attempted to cover
himself and his handgun. But when he heard one man order another to
grab his gun, Place pulled out the Smith & Wesson and fired several
times. One attacker was hit in the leg and another sustained a wound
to his buttocks. Police later caught all four thugs and charged them
with strong-arm robbery. Place, explaining his decision to carry
discreetly, said, "I told [co-workers] I hoped I never had to shoot
anyone, but I knew it was them or me."
