Houston Smoke Shop Robbery Fail

Houston, TX – A Houston smoke shop robbery didn’t go well for this wannabe thug, as he learned why robbing stores in Texas is a bad idea.

A video was released this week by YouTube user “White Shadow” which shows him defending himself against an armed robber. In the video below, you can see the robber wearing a black backpack and yellow colored hat walk into the smoke shop at approximately 8:52 PM on August 25th 2016.

The man raised his gun at the clerk immediately after walking into the store. The clerk didn’t hesitate to find cover and grab his own gun, a CZ-75 SP-01 Tactical. The robber continued to walk towards the cash register as the clerk concealed himself behind a wall and pulled his gun out.

The Clerk’s weapon of choice, a CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical. It comes in .40 or 9mm and retails for around $700

The clerk emerged from behind the wall and started firing shots at the robber. He fired several one handed shots, some with both hands, and even tried to take a drag from his cigarette as he unleashed a hail of bullets on the would-be robber.

The robber suddenly realized that he made a huge mistake messing with this clerk and he bolted out the door as the the clerk continued firing shots at him.

All of this occurred without the clerk dropping his cigarette.

Why anyone would try to rob a store in Texas of all places is beyond me. Texas has some of the most lenient gun laws in the United States, allows anyone to open carry as long as they are on their own premises, and is a “Stand Your Ground” state.

In the description of the video, the clerk posted this:

“Castle doctrine, baby. Shout out to CZ-USA, beautiful performance from my CZ-75 SP-01 Tactical.”
