    DAYTON — The clothing store at which an owner fatally shot one of two alleged robbers on Monday was previously hit by three masked men in November 2012.
    ...
    "At this point, it does appear to be self defense, but we are going through a full investigation to determine that," Dickey said.
    ...
    "It concerns me when you are living in the community and you hear about the robberies," said shopper Darlene Cotton of Dayton. "I don't know if it's the economy, but that's no excuse. You can't just go out and rob... . (The owner) did what he felt like he had to do. He could have feared for his life. The businesses are armed because of the crime that's taken place in certain areas."

    Annnnd my favorite quote:

    On Nov. 9, 2012, the Step-N-Style owner told police that three armed, hooded men in masks robbed the store, making off with a .40-caliber and a .23-caliber Glock pistols, his car keys and the store keys, according to a report. They also took $1,000 in cash from the register, the owner's wallet and nearly 200 pairs of jeans, the report said. In all, the robbers reportedly made off with an estimated $28,042 worth of goods.

    Wow, the .23 caliber Glock has to be worth Twenty Grand it self
     

  3. Argghhhh! You would think that journalists would take the time to research and get the story right. NOW there will be Glock Fanboys flooding gun shops looking for a 23 caliber Glock.

    I am sure that the Glock stolen was a Glock 23, a 40 S&W caliber.

    I carry a .23 caliber because Glock doesn't make a .24...

  8. I hate to do this, but Glock does make a model 24, not sold to civilians in the US though. The 24 is .380 caliber.

    Focus on the word "caliber." According to classical gramarians, the word is implied after ".24" (".24" not "24") because it is specifically stated following ".23."
