Two Men Try To Rob a Gun Store… With A Gun That’s Not Loaded!

You know the old expression “Never bring a knife to a gun fight”?  This might be an even dumber move than THAT.  Never bring an unloaded gun to a loaded gun fight.

Last Thursday, in Northland, Missouri, two men tried to rob a gun store… using a gun that wasn’t loaded.

The two men walked into Guns Unlimited in Northland, put $40 on the counter, and asked for a box of .357 Magnum ammunition.  The clerk told them it would run $50 and he was short.

At that point, one of the men pulled out a .357 Magnum, pointed it at the clerk, and said, quote, “Give me your money!”

The clerk was a 65-year-old man, whose name wasn’t released.  He instantly figured out that the gun pointed at him was the same one the men wanted ammo for… and when he focused on the cylinder, he saw it was empty.

Meanwhile, this being a gun shop and all, he reached down and grabbed HIS gun… which WAS loaded.

The two men took off … and left their $40 behind.  So their profit from their unarmed robbery attempt was a cool negative-40 bucks.

The police are searching for the attempted robbers.
