Two brave women.
Otherwise - hmmm - where do I start.
So - Everything Kevin said “plus”:
“Partly Trained” is a stretch.
If you are going to be using a gun - GET TRAINED.
Not just part-way.
If you are going to Train people - “TRAIN” them. Dammit.
I don’t know what is worse - Part Training or No training.
The typical Conceal Carry Course is NOT - “Training”.
They got lucky.
Even given that most gun fights are terrifying, confusing events.
One is “partly” trained, the other just enough to get both
They look like 2 chickens trying to catch a Snake.
These 2 Brave women deserved better.
So DONT - “Partly” train people.
Train them to the point the bad guy can “See” that “HE”
made a big mistake.
Don’t just teach them how to shoot, teach them how to “Fight”.
With and without a gun.
Looks to me like she may have “run dry” - so then-Pistol whip him.
Or as, some say, bust him with a liquor bottle.
What you “should” do:
Quick, solid Draw to a good solid Defensive Position.
(But you have to teach people how to do that)
Then - “STOP RIGHT THERE, OR I “WILL” SHOOT YOU”
From “behind” the counter.
Or - “here”(this case) - just start shooting until he is down.
