As reported, a man used his lawfully carried handgun to stop a trio of robbers:

Police say that attached approached and attempted to rob a man outside the Longhorn Steakhouse on the 6800 block of Okeechobee Blvd in West Palm Beach, Florida.  Acting in self defense, the robbery victim reportedly drew and fired his handgun, striking one of the robbers and causing the other two robbers to flee.  A suspect was reportedly taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, and police are seeking the two uninjured robbers.  No injuries to the concealed carry permit holder were reported.

Here we have yet another concealed carry permit holder who was saved by their gun.  Had this crime victim not had a gun for self defense, he could have been seriously injured or killed by the robbers who outnumbered him 3-to-1.  Luckily, he was armed, and as a result managed to escape this robbery attempt unharmed.
