Like the legendary gunfight at the OK corral this fight was over within a few minutes.
Police entered from both ends of the storage area with guns drawn. Although Mark was uncomfortable he stayed put until the building was full of police and reporters. Both punks were arrested, and both were wounded. With all the attention centered around the wounded men, Mark climbed out of the barrel and ambled out the door.
There was a renewed spring in his step as walked toward his home. He tipped his hat to the women and nodded to the men.
Once at home he replaced the Colt .45’s in the closet and filled his holster with the phony pistols. He left his appartment at 10:50. Granny’s served early lunch at 11:00. He would get there right on time.
