Shootout at the roadhouse

The boom that followed the sudden flash shook the shutters on the thick bullet-proof windows. That was followed quickly by two more shotgun blasts. Most of the vets and their ladies ducked down behind the tables, and two couples took cover behind the big brick fireplace in the railroad-tie reinforced front wall. The women were staring at the men, and the men were staring at the front door on the far end of the room, where Kelly was already off his bar stool and running, an automatic in each hand.
