Stock Glock 45Don’t bring a… machete… to a gunfight. Police in North Little Rock, AR are searching for two suspects in an attempted robbery of a pharmacy last week.

The would be robber was armed with a machete. Despite his large blade, the suspect still took off running when the store owner produced a .45 caliber Glock handgun.

Police are also looking for a man they think acted as a lookout during the attempted robbery.

According to ArkansasMatters.com,

The suspect is believed to have had a lookout described as a heavy set white man who was wearing a large loose black t-shirt and baggy black Dickies style shorts, along with knee high white socks.

After the robbery was foiled, police say the suspect ran behind the business onto East H Street.

The caliber of the gun could have technically been a .45ACP or Glock’s proprietary round, .45GAP. The source story doesn’t make the distinction.

This is another great example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired and no one was harmed. Because of those facts, this story will likely not be included in many studies and statistics on self defense, as those often only look at incidents in which someone was shot.
