After asking to see a rifle on display in Harold Von Wahlde’s Anderson, Ind., gun store, a man pulled out a revolver and demanded money.

Von Wahlde, 71, attempted to grab the gun and a struggle ensued. When the robber’s gun misfired, Von Wahlde grabbed a cal. .38 handgun from a shelf behind him and fired one shot that mortally wounded the thug.
