Botched robbery near Philly

Two teens in burkas flee after gun-store owner fires a single shot.

Happened in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, says
Who is Joe Galiano? He's the owner of Suburban Armory, the gun shop on MacDade Boulevard in Collingdale Borough, Delaware County. He is surrounded by guns, including the one on his hip. Like his .45-caliber pistol. Can't miss it. 
Despite this fact, police say two teenagers dressed in burkas walked into his store this afternoon, pulled a gun on Galiano and tried to stick him up. Galiano, less than thrilled about having a man in female Muslim garb pointing a silver handgun at him inside his own store, decided not to comply, but instead to make use of his own gun.
Two teen suspects were arrested not far from the would-be holdup site. Discared burkas also recovered. The article doesn't say it if the suspects are Muslim.

What are the chances their attire put the owner on alert as soon as they came through the door?
