Geez. Not sure what was more scary, the robbery or that old dude who couldn't hit the broad side of a barn blasting away. Damn.
He did save the day, but I would advise him to spend a little more time practicing.

You know, I thought about that too, and I'm almost convinced that he WASN'T trying to actually hit them, especially when they started running away.

I'll bet they think twice before they try that again!

I'll admit that the gunmen will certainly think twice before they try that again, but he was no Anney Oaklely...or Beaver Cleaver, for that matter.

I hate to be the one to bring this up but the old guy should be brought up on charges.

Once the threat has stopped, unless you happen to be a LEO you are not allowed to pursue.

Maybe he wasn't brought up on any charges since he apparently didn't hit anybody?

That crossed my mind too at first that since they were retreating maybe he should not be pursuing. But, all they had to do is stop, turn around and shoot back at him. If they had dropped their guns, ok, but they were still armed and potentially life threatening. I'm not a lawyer, but the threat was not gone until they left the room, not while they were running away.

Yeah, it worked, but does anyone know where the bullets went? I don't think he hit either one. As for legal? I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Kellory,
I watched the end of the film quite a few times. His last shots are out the door as it is closing, but I could not see any bullet strikes. Seemed odd, but who knows?

I hope the old guy isn't nuts enough to be using blanks for effect. That will get him killed, as well as anyone nearby.
