Robert Moore was working in his Seattle convenience store last Saturday night when two masked robbers entered.
One of the robbers stood near the door as a lookout, while the second robber pointed a gun at Moore and said, "This is a robbery."
However, Moore (pictured) didn't think the robber's gun looked real.
"I looked at his gun and said 'I have a bigger one than you do,'" Moore told KOMO (video below).
When Moore turned to get his own gun, the robbers fled the store in a white SUV, which was recorded on surveillance tape.
Moore showed his "big gun" to KOMO, which turned out to be a small handgun, but was real.
Seattle police are trying to locate the white SUV dark markings on the rear of the left side and a sun roof, but so far have no leads. notes KATU.
"It's a good place and Robert's so great to the locals and stuff like that," local customer Rich Morris stated. "It's just a shame when people get desperate like that."
