While having a firearm is an important part of any defensive gun use, you should never forget your most valuable weapon – the one between your ears.

An elderly gas station clerk, identified as Sammy Williams, in Chesapeake, VA made use of his mind before he made use of his gun last week.

According to WTKR,

“I thought it was a prank. I said dude gotta be kidding, joking. I said no to opening the drawer,” says Sammy Williams.

“He started shaking the gun at me telling me to give him the other till which we don`t keep there anymore because we got robbed at the same store on June 25th at 2:40 in the afternoon. So that`s why we had a weapon there.

He got upset because there wasn`t another till, so he said give me that green bag over there. I said ‘No that`s mine. It’s got my medicine it. I’m an older person, that`s my blood pressure medicine in it,’”says Williams.

“I got my gun. I hit the silent alarm. I exchanged fire. I didn`t realize I shot 6 times in less than 2 seconds,” says Williams.

Williams fired 6 shots at the suspect, who is believed to have been hit twice. However, the suspect still managed to get away and remains at large.
