    I'm guessing it was a .22 caliber or this dude was so high on drugs it didn't matter
    Possibly both

    The blonde let him get within an arms length & he got her weapon. She should have emptied weapon into him so he couldn't use it against them.

    They should have made Swiss Cheese out of his chest cavity. Drugged up or not, he would have bleed out quicker. Someone needs to explain it to both of them.

    When you pull a weapon the first order of business is to neutralize the threat. They should have continued shooting till he was down.It seems they were trying to scare him off & it cold have easily cost one or both their lives. Above all don't allow the assailant access to a loaded weapon. He was stronger than the girls. The pistols took away his advantage if they had been used properly.

    I have heard debates about the advantage of 9 mm or 40 cal. because of more magazine capacity over a .45. If this thug had been shot once or twice in the chest with a soft tip .45 he would not have been a threat to the girls. Most self defense situations are at close range & usually very few shots fired. I still like my chances with my old, outdated .45. Many firearms trainers say to do two shots, or "tap", "tap" to stop the threat.
    A law officer who is a close friend was recently involved in an incident with a man on meth. The man had "superhuman" strength & took down three deputies when he had difficulty breathing. The friend did CPR on the assailant in spite of being injured enough to require a hospital stay. The assailant died at the scene. An autopsy showed his heart exploded due to the meth.
    The deputies didn't pull their service weapons which I probably would have done especially when the tasers did not slow down their attacker.

    If the other young lady wasn’t there the older one was dead when she lost control. I actually showed this to my wife to refresh what I have told her you don’t shoot to injure when your life is in danger and if you are holding the gun on someone they must be kept at a distance.

    Credit to both these ladies for reaching for the weapon when he turned his back. A lot of people would freeze in this situation and gamble that he would take the money and not harm them.

    He fell down at the end of the video so it's probable the x-rays will reveal he's holier then thou
