    Good for gramps. A .380 is probably something the old guy felt he could handle tho. If that is why he didn't have a bigger cal. sidearm then I commend him on the decision, as perhaps with arthritis and less then steady hands at his age, something bigger may throw off shot placement and hit a bystander.
    He appeared to be getting ready to exchange fire too, as he was attempting to get down in a one knee shooting position, until the robbers fled.

    Someone commented about him shooting at them while they were running away.

    So what?

    He stopped shooting when they were out of the store and no longer a danger.

    A .380 is just easier to conceal.
