[..YouTube..] Outstanding! Thank you for your service to our country.

[..YouTube..] Excellent job – glad you prevailed – the criminals got what they deserved! Thank you for serving our country!

Good job, forget all those morons feeling sorry for the thieving pieces of
crap those two guys were. If you are going to help pull off an armed
robbery then you better be able to take the consequences

[..YouTube..] @NorikoSurge Thank you for the comment, NorikoSurge. This happened on Valentine’s Day 2005 at my jewelry store in Bardonia, NY, which is about 25 miles north of Manhattan on the west side of the Hudson River.

Despite my disdain for using lethal force, you did an honorable thing, and
you fought bravely. This must’ve been like a simple training exercise
compared to the amount of combat you’ve experienced, and I think the
soldiers who fought in any war don’t get enough respect. So thank you for
all you have done. One question, I may have missed this but, where did this
take place?

@SemperCool… brother, I’m right with you. I’m 2A all the way. I’m just
saying that, like that poor woman, and her family are suffering, the family
of that stupid young man is suffering. Their son is dead, by his own
foolishness, but none the less; he’s dead. They’ve lost too. I would shoot
just like you did but I wouldn’t make some of the statements you’ve made is
all… at least not so non-nonchalantly. Please understand, I’m not
faulting your actions but what appears to be callousness words.

[..YouTube..] @asoul576 Thank you for the comment and the question. You asked it in a very polite and tactful manner. Here is my honest answer for you: It doesn’t bother me AT ALL that I had to kill one of them.

There are monstrous people in the world. Think about what happened to Laura Garza (google it). What her family is going through right now is what “bothers” me. And that’s the truth.

[..YouTube..] Barry, it’s good you were able to stop these criminals I just don’t know how I feel about some of your comments on this video.

In my opinion this was a tragedy. The foolish men who did this deserved it but man, doesn’t it bother you that you had to do this? If it does, I don’t hear it in the video. That bothers me a bit.

On a more positive note. It’s good you weren’t a victim and these men were stopped from victimizing anyone else. Thank you for your service in our military as well.

i love how you push the gun away from your face.. COOOOOOOOOL !!

[..YouTube..] i love how you push the gun away from your face.. COOOOOOOOOL !!

[..YouTube..] THis is theway to deal with crime – UK wake up.

[..YouTube..] Lol OWNED!!!!!!!!!!

[..YouTube..] So many times we DO NOT get to hear the stories of how CRIME DOES NOT PAY!!! We are told daily in the papers and the media of another crime, and to be on the look out for some vauge discription of the people who robbed,killed or both and got away with it. This preception only encourages crime against hard working people. Thanks for sharing this video and showing that the right to protect yourself and your property is still alive and well in America.

[..YouTube..] Well done. Take pride in what you did, these guys dont deserve to walk the streets of America.

[..YouTube..] @coolfreaks911 And he did have a handgun.

[..YouTube..] @adjam5 Thank you Adam.

[..YouTube..] @coolfreaks911….. I shot him in the chest, but he didn’t collapse until he reached the door. Watch the video closely and you’ll see him react as my bullet enters him. See my response to @challengeyourmind for more details.

@challengeyourmind There is a chapter on PTSD in SEMPER COOL. I hope you
read the book and enjoy it. It will be available in November 2010. If you
don’t want to buy it you can check it out at your local library for free.
If you do buy it, 100% of my royalties go to help wounded warriors; men and
women who were injured fighting for the United States of America.

@asdfasqwrt The guy in the white sweatshirt was paralyzed by my bullet and
eventually died about 3 years later. The guy in the black trench coat was
shot but was not injured because he was wearing a bullet proof vest.

Did that shot guy survive???

God Bless you Barry. America needs more men like you. Good riddance to the
POS’s. Thank you also for ALL you do for OUR nations wounded warriors. YOU
ARE DA MAN! Good Luck with the book. I will be stopping the store to
purchase one in the near future.

Thank you for your service, and I’m glad to see you not injured in this
ordeal. Warriors like yourself serve to remind people that these “jackels”
out there on the street will hunt, kill, and destroy lives unless they are
challenged and stopped. From one soldier to another, good luck and god
bless.

[..YouTube..] God bless and good luck on your book!

[..YouTube..] Way to go SemperCool! If all us good guys carried and were trained, these thugs would have to find a different line of work.

@ those who said he was shot in the back. Wtf, didn’t you watch the video? They were rushing him with guns drawn. He’s damn lucky he didn’t get shot himself.

[..YouTube..] Hats off !

Once a someone/group pulls out a weapon and threatens with deadly force all
bets all off. If they are facing me in the front, back, left, or right,
they will get shot. They may/can retaliate at another time, if you give
them the chance to live. I’ve been robbed before 02/16/2007 and have been
in a shootout with the turds. Did you know that a police report will have
the address of the victims, but not the criminals?

This comment doesn’t rate a response. Just understand that anyone who
threatens me with deadly force or attempts to rob my store with a firearm
should be prepared to die, regardless of skin color. The thug in the white
sweatshirt and his accomplices admitted that they planned on killing me.
They had two cars, one for the loot, and one for my body. The guy who was
in charge of disposing of my body still had latex gloves on and a body bag
in the trunk of his car when they caught him.

SemperCool February 15, 2010

[..YouTube..] I shot him in the chest. There was a full crime scene investigation and forensics determined he was shot from a distance of less than 4 feet in the chest and the bullet passed through his abdomen and severed his spine.

If you watch closely, you can see him flinch and double over as my bullet enters him. He was able to run because his brain had already sent the signals to his legs. In my book, Semper Cool, I talk about some amazing things I’ve seen people do even after their heads are blown off.

[..YouTube..] Agreed. And maybe Mr. Fixler needs therapy for his PTSD which compels him to shoot people in the back when they ar clearly running away

[..YouTube..] Yeah you would buy the book. Since racists like you love to see minorities die from gunshot wounds in the back!

[..YouTube..] Yeah, a good guy who shoots people in the back

coolfreaks911 February 10, 2010

How did he get away with shooting the guy in the white? he wasn’t armed and
im sure lawyers would have proven he did not know the guy or was connected
with the guy in the black coat in court? or did I miss a part in the video?

Well done. The narration was excellent and really sets this apart from
other silent security cam footage. If the narration on the video is a taste
of your writing style, I’m buying your book. Stay safe.
