One of the customers was an off duty cop and when the robber turned so that the gun blocked his vision the the cop drew his concealed auto (it was not a tiny gun but my guess was a 9mm) and fired one round. Must have been a good on the guy fell down instantly and apparently died.

Yeah, on the Three Tier Tactical site are links to a bunch of security cam videos of armed robberies. Most were in Brazil; leaving me with the impression that when the Wild West left America, thatís where it took up residence.

In any case, there were several that fit that pattern: armed robber comes in, draws his gun; concealed-carrying good guy (along with everybody else) puts his hands up and his eyes down; when the bad guy looks away, the good guy draws and nails him.

Bide your time... wait for an opening.... then strike fast!

All of the good guys appeared to be carrying fullsize pistols.

Also, all these videos provide good examples of why concealed carry is preferable to open carry.

A couple of other ones show what happens when a good guy tries to draw from concealement, on an undistracted badguy with a gun already in his hand. None turned out well for the good guy.
