A few years back a retired HS teacher in his 70's was in a downtown barber shop when a couple armed thugs came in to rob the place. The teacher said he was just going to be quiet and let them so their do but when one of them pistol whipped the shop owner he pulled his 2 shot .22 derringer and put a round between the eyes of the whipper from across the room, dropping him like a bad habit. The other thug ran for it and pops put his remaining round in the back of number 2's head as he pushed open the door. That thug fell dead on the sidewalk just outside the door.
There was also the guy who took out 3 robbers in a steakhouse when they started to herd everyone into the reefer. He said he was sure they intended to kill everyone so he drew his 1911 and took 3 shots resulting in 3 kills.
It does not pay to try to rob in Alabama. We tend to shoot folks who try it.
