Sometimes it can be more dangerous for the aggressors......

According to recent reports, a man is recovering in jail after being shot during a botched robbery Sunday in Georgia. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution indicates a delivery driver working for a local Papa John’s was making a delivery when 24-year-old Decatur resident Donquaz Devon Stevenson ordered her to get on the ground at gunpoint.
“She arrived at the location and a male began approaching the vehicle she thought was there to pick up the pizza,” said DeKalb County Police Capt. Steve Fore. “When he got to her, he produced a handgun and forced her out of the vehicle and onto the ground.”

Instead of giving in to his demands, however, she was able to retrieve her own handgun and shoot Stevenson in the face. “She had her own firearm in her pocket,” Fore explained, “and while down on the ground she was able to retrieve that firearm and then shoot the suspect.”
The would-be robber was apprehended a short time later and was jailed on an armed robbery charge. An accomplice was able to get into the employee’s vehicle and drive away, however, and police are still searching for the suspect as of the latest reports available.

It must be the pits to work in fear like that.
I worked for Several years at two national Pizza delivery companies; I was robbed once at gunpoint, and it was a setup from the start. a Generic address at a apartment complex, the apartment given as A the most common letter of apartments. When I went to the apartment it was the model apartment, I tried the next in the series for the same apartment just in case it was the wrong one. Leaving that one is when I got robbed by 3 assailants, they produced a gun, it did not look real, but I was not willing to challenge that. These apartments had been good clean apartments to that point.

There were times that I went on a delivery with a gun, it was in the pizza bag, right under the pizzas, when there was no problem the customer got their pizza, but had there been a problem, I would have shot right through the bag if I had too.

The company's did not want the drivers carry firearms, but I would rather have lost my job, than my life. I also carried a MAG light , one of the best flashlight that can be carried, you have a small baseball bat in your hands, that also is a great flash light in of it's self.
