A 22-year-old Oregon man learned the hard way last week that a baseball bat isn’t the best weapon to wield while robbing a store loaded with firearms.

Derrick Mosley reportedly tried to rob Discount Gun Sales in Beaverton, Ore., Thursday afternoon, Mediaite.com reported.

According to police, Mr. Mosley smashed a display case with the bat and tried to steal a gun, when the manager of the store pulled out his personal firearm and ordered Mr. Mosley to get on the ground.

The robber was being held at gunpoint by the manager when sheriff’s deputies arrived, KATU reported. He was taken into custody on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree criminal mischief, the station said. Bail was set at $250,000.
