Tomorrow being Thanksgiving, we’ll have a placeholder post. Regular posts will resume as usual for Rule Five Friday.
Short post today, as family pre-Thanksgiving activities beckon, but here’s a happy ending for you. Excerpt:
Tan Ho, the owner of Spokane’s Hai’s Mini Mart, told KXLY he stays ready to defend himself, keeping both a handgun and a machete at close reach under the counter.
Ho, who told reporters he had previous experience scaring off an armed robber about a year ago, refused to be a victim when confronted last Tuesday at the shop when facing off with a man holding a knife and demanding money.
“I pulled out my gun — like this — and I pointed it right at him, and he ran,” said Ho. When prompted, he showed off his handgun, which looks to be an IWI Jericho 941 that he keeps in a leather thumb break holster attached to the counter.
I love a happy ending. Happy Thanksgiving, True Believers! We’ll catch you all on Friday.
