Andy Needs More Practice

He did the right thing, but maybe not well enough.

Andy Kochanski thought the silhouettes he spotted through the foggy windows were two customers coming into his tavern about 1 a.m. Friday.

...Then Kochanski saw the black ski masks and the sawed-off shotgun.

He didn't hesitate. He reached under the bar for his loaded Glock .45.

As he ducked, he heard a blast and lead whizzing over his head, shattering whiskey bottles and the mirror behind the bar

He stood up and squeezed the trigger.

...He thinks he hit the man firing the shotgun - from the way the man fell back - but he can't say for sure.

Police said they had no suspects in custody Saturday night

Just like with the concertina, Andy, practice works with a Glock. You don't have to say "I'm not sure" if you practice, practice, practice...

Ventilation is the key. But it's hard to double tap with a Glock .45
