WOW! I'd rather be lucky than good...

Or, in biblical terms:

I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise nor wealth to the discerning nor favor to men of ability; for time and chance overtake them all.

--Ecclesiastes 9:11

2 questions...

1) what type of cell phone does did have have?

2) what type of gun/ammunition did the bad guys use?

A 3rd question: did either of the suspects have a GWL or, for the Connecticut resident, CT's equivalent? Or was the GA resident firing from his car in order to stop a forcible felony to himself, his passenger, or his automobile?

Somehow I doubt it.

I just watched CNN.com's video report of this, and they show the pistols in evidence bags. One's most certainly a 9mm Sigma SVE. The other is some black polymer frame double-stack compact and I can't tell if it's striker or hammer fire.

The grip texture looks like it could be an HK, but I can't tell if it has a hammer or not. It could also be an XD, but there's something under the slide (locked back in the evidence bag) that looks like a hammer. (which would rule out the striker-fired XD)

Regardless, I'm thinking it was a 9mm round that didn't make it through a cell phone since Sigma's are only 9 or 40 (and this Sigma's magazine had peepholes up to round 15 and their .40 mags stop at 13...even though they hold 14.....I used to own one). And the odds that the other gun is .380 are slim cause really.....who would own a double-stack polymer pistol in .380?

They didn't show the phone. :(

ETA: Screenshot of mystery pistol:

During an interview on the news, I thought they said it was an "EVO"

The pic looks like a Kel-Tec with the slide back.

Even if the CT guy had/has a valid CT license, GA and CT do not have reciprocity with one another so he wouldn't be covered in GA if thats all he had.

The phone appears to be a HTC (sprint's iphone) judging by the dented battery in the link.
If I worked in advertising at HTC, I would be riding this one HARD...

Yeah, the phone was definitely an HTC. Unreal that it stopped what appears to be a 9mm round. Luck was definitely on this guys side...

I was a valet for 3 years in Atlanta, 2007-2010. I did not work for this company though. Apparently this valet was not a prime target for the criminals, but never-the-less I feel like valets should CC. Dealing with high amounts of cash, working late hours in bad parts of Atlanta... From experience, I know that valets are considered easy targets by robbers not just for the cash they carry but also the keys to the cars they are parking. Anyways, was just a little personal for me, since I had the some occupation and used to work on Ponce De Leon in Midtown.
