Robert Cole, a former sheriff's deputy and current NRA member, knew
that senior citizens are a prime target for theft, so he was always
prepared for the worst. He and his wife, Pamela, had just pulled
into a parking spot at the local grocery store one day when an
unknown man approached them. As Cole walked to the passenger side of
the truck to open the door for his wife, the man came closer and
demanded his wallet. "It looked like he had a sawed-off shotgun
underneath a towel," said Cole. "I reached in my back pocket to make
it seem like I was getting my wallet, but I pulled out a handgun and
threatened to shoot him." At that point, said Cole, the suspect
pulled the towel off, revealing not a sawed-off shotgun, but two
locking pliers positioned to look like a shotgun. The suspect then
claimed he was a police officer, but he and his driver eventually
fled the scene. Cole said that this was not the first time he and
his wife were almost robbed and that they 'wanted to warn senior
citizens' of what can happen.
