The suspect pointed his crossbow at the employee, but fled when the employee pointed a gun back at him.

Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight, and don’t bring a single-shot crossbow to rob a Canadian store full of guns.

A 31-year-old suspect walked into the Powder Keg Shooters Supply in Kamloops on Monday, pointed his crossbow at an employee and demanded a gun. But the crook quickly discovered that bullet beats arrow after the employee pulled out a firearm, Info Tel reports.

The would-be robber turned tail and ran, escaping the scene in a vehicle. Later that day, he turned himself in to the police.
