That was awful fast for dumb luck.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

The way he brought his hand around to sweep the shotgun in the direction he did suggests training to me.

Either way, that crook is a loser, even for a thug. Or possibly the shotgun was empty and he panicked when he realized he was about to have his posterior kicked.

Shotgun to the Face of Unarmed Man - Proper

I agree with you on the 10-15 feet, but even if he had the gun low, someone trained could easily take the gun away if the BG was in close. I was in a hand to hand class last weekend where we practiced doing just what this guy did, including disarms where the BG is behind you.
