WATCH: Would-Be Victim Shoots 2 Armed Robbers

Two criminals in Los Angeles have some sweet-looking new bullet wounds to enjoy after attempting to rob the wrong would-be victim.

Video provided by the Los Angeles Police Department shows two suspects – preferred pronouns unknown at this time – emerging from a Dodge Avenger (a reasonably good ‘value buy,’ according to Edmunds) and approaching their intended victim.

One of the would-be robbers points a handgun at the would-be victim, prompting him to draw his own weapon of preference.

It turns out the intended victim is a much faster draw than the suspects, and a better shot too! He must spend more time at the practice range than the suspects.

The More You Know: Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in any skill. If you DO intend to pull your weapon with intent to harm, you better be a person of discipline and practice, practice, practice FIRST. Otherwise…

Police arrested 22-year-old Nicholas Brown and 28-year-old Markeil Hayes in connection with the botched robbery. Brown was suffering from a spiffy new gunshot wound to his upper left thigh, while Hayes was sporting a bullet wound to his right calf.
