If your Bill Jordon, who could draw and fire accurately in .037 seconds, that's fine. I have the American Rifleman show recorded with him in it. And that was from a duty holster not a concealed carry rig.
Few people can come anywhere near that.
So this guy is robbing a bank and is gonna take the time to frisk everyone in the bank? I shut my mouth and let the robbery happen. That is why banks have insurance. If my life is threatened, I act to the best of my ability. Otherwise.... let him rob the bank and leave.
An opportunity might present itself while he is checking for weapons. I doubt that he would try to firsk everyone, unless he was really stupid. I expect that he would one at a time have each person lift their shirt/jacket and turn around to do his check. While his attention was on another person would likely present a good opportunity.
If he did a physical check or gets close....DATD.
I'm NOT surrendering my unknown weapon to someone lining us up with a 9mm in a bank...
I agree with the other posters who said there's not a snowball's chance in the underworld that I'm giving up my gun. Not happening. What does happen all hinges on a lot of details not described here, but you can be sure he's not getting my gun from me.

BTW this scenario was used as a plot device in the film 'The Inside Man'; Inside Man (2006)
A very good movie BTW.
As well this scenario played out in several robberys I've read of recently including two barber shop take downs, one locally here in Springfield, MA at what was a known drug distribution front as during a buy & steal effort. The second being at a head shop where a B grade rapper was known to hang out...He was approached by a squad to hold him and his entourage indoors and out while being robbed of his cash, jewels (watch, earrings, necklace and fronts/teeth) as well they took off in his Hummer H2 which was laced out in hoodrich gear.
There was video of the latter on YouTube via the local news when it happened several years ago.
Where as the former made big news locally because the take down attempt resulted in a literal mid day running on foot gun battle inside the building that spilled out onto the sidewalk and streets as shooters from both camps were attempting to stop each other. It was cray.
So yeah I'm with you Bark'n...But there are multiple factors including how much support staff does the primary shooter have with him, to which one must assume they too are armed.
I will say HUH? i cant hear i am deaf, BOOM BOOM, (Bad guy falls on the floor)

No guns allowed in Banks in Nebraska so I would be screwed. go through the drivethrough
i dopnt believe in double taps...theyre for the movies...i believe he is making a big mistake asking people to raise their hands because i am rather certain a hand is going to be raised holding a glock quite similar to his except that this one will be distributing funds in his direction in the form of a wall of bullets...
i'm gonna need a bit more information but i dont think i'm intersted in him frisking me for a gun because i have a feeleing his own is gonna be in my gut while he does it...if he didnt ask for it he might just walk away with a bunch of bank cash...but if hes gonna make threats that arent related to taking the banks money i have to worry that his intentions are a bit beyond just holding a bank up...

I see only one reason to unholster/draw my weapon with bystanders around. For this scenario, I'd attempt to stop the threat first before surrendering my firearm.
If there are more than one BG, then I think you're gonig to have to overpower the one who tries to disarm you, and hopfully use him/has as a shield, but then again, it's all in how the game goes down.
