Default store clerk to would-be robbers: 'My gun is bigger'

It wasn't quite bringing a knife to a gun fight, but two would-be robbers in West Seattle found themselves quickly over matched Saturday night.

Robert Moore was ringing-up a customer around 10 p.m. at the Morning Star Mini Mart, located in the 8800 block of 9th Ave SW, when two men entered the store wearing ski masks. One of the men stayed near the entrance of the store while the other attempted robber approached the counter and pointed a gun at Moore.

"This is a robbery," Moore said the man told him.

Moore said the attempted robber's gun didn't look real.

"I looked at his gun and said 'I have a bigger one than you do,' " he said.

It looks like they got the guys. There was a blurb under your link.

They're lucky that the clerk didn't blast them.

"My gun is bigger". That sorta goes back to "This is my rifle, this is my gun. This is for shooting and this is for fun".

That last blurb in the video was the really important part of the story... "the robber's gun did not look real"

The store owner obviously knew what was being pointed at him.
