I agree,that day I changed shifts with another, we were co-owners so we didn't count down the register ect. we just said there's change in the box(quarters,dimes ect.) and the guns there and he pointed to it. I should have picked it up,but got to looking at the things to do and waiting on customers. The pistol was directly under the register on the top shelf(it's a wonder they didn't see it),,it was a hard lesson to learn(so close and so far away!),
It's actually embarrassing to admit to making that mistake(and I'm glad I lived through it),there were two of them and all they had was an old hickory kitchen knife the first one stopped to look at the doughnuts on the rack at the front of the counter(so I would pay him attention),the other went around the counter to the fountain drinks and rounded the counter at me. The counter was horseshoe shaped so I had a way out(other side) but he stuck me 1/4 inch,left side of my ribcage(I out ran him backwards,lol).
lol,not the sort of he man story most of us would tell,but I learned from it. I didn't want to tell the facts the first few years,but as we grew and began hiring workers I realized that I was lucky to have learned these things and lived to tell so if then I didn't others would make the same mistakes and live to tell,but your right it's gotta be loaded,and you have to be in possession of it. The amazing part is that no robbery is the same,it changes every time.
