Agreed. It's an atypical incident.
Also, while a good story, it appears to be undocumented. If it can't ne firmly established through reliable sources that it actually happened as described, it's just an entertaining yarn.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
