Gun-armed shop owner spurs knife-armed robber to quickly change mind (VIDEO)

A Washington mini-mart owner who has survived robberies in the past turned the tables on a would-be bandit last week.

Tan Ho, the owner of Spokane’s Hai’s Mini Mart, told KXLY he stays ready to defend himself, keeping both a handgun and a machete at close reach under the counter.

Ho, who told reporters he had previous experience scaring off an armed robber about a year ago, refused to be a victim when confronted last Tuesday at the shop when facing off with a man holding a knife and demanding money.

“I pulled out my gun — like this — and I pointed it right at him, and he ran,” said Ho. When prompted, he showed off his handgun, which looks to be an IWI Jericho 941 that he keeps in a leather thumb break holster attached to the counter.

Police are reportedly still searching for the suspect, who was only inside the store for a few seconds before he broke for the door.
