A store clerk in Seattle dodged a bullet (perhaps literally) when he told would-be robbers, “I have a bigger gun than you do!”

Two men wearing ski masks entered Morning Star Mini Mart in West Seattle around 10 pm on Saturday. They immediately walked up to the store’s owner, Robert Moore, and pointed a gun at him.

Moore said to the thief, “This is robbery.”

Suspecting the robber’s gun was fake, Moore told him, “I have a bigger gun than you do!” He proved it by pulling out his caliber revolver from under the store counter.


The robbers immediately ran out of the store and drove away in a white SUV.

Customer Rich Morris said, “It’s a good place and Robert’s so great to the locals and stuff like that. It’s just a shame when people get desperate like that.”

These robbers clearly picked the wrong store clerk to mess with.

At this time, Seattle police have made no arrests related to the incident and have no suspects.

    The revolver is I think a .38 which for all intents is a 9mm, and the other one I think is a Ruger LC9 or LC38. I kinda doubt they are bigger than what the robber had unless his was a .22 or.25. Either way, I applaud the store owner for standing up against these thugs. That being said in MHO, if he told the robber his gun was bigger he risked getting shot by the robber in an attempt to keep him from reaching for the gun. I think the store owner should have grabbed the gun but not announced his intentions. However I wasn’t there and it all seemed to work out.

        I will refer to you knowledge in this matter. I have only owned 1 revolver and it was a.22 and that was years ago. Yeah, a .357 would have a bit more punch than a lot of other handguns.
