I read that, but it could've had both a stock and a grip.

20-30 feet is a whoop azz distance for a 12 ga. with buckshot.

Still good shooting though.

I bet the first shot that dropped the pistol whipper was closer than that.

Wonder what New York laws are on shooting a fleeing felon?

More info:

"The owner never got up from his chair during the robbery. He fired all three rounds from a seated position."

ahh..the good 'ol "desk rest" position!

Technically legal. However, not very smart. Could easily land you in jail. It will depend entirely on the DA.
