Excellent story. If we leave them to their own devices, the problem will eventually take care of itself (but who wants to wait that long?). [50] Heard a similar story where the crook was using a revolver. Pulled the trigger once, nothing happened. Looked down the barrel and pulled the trigger again. This time it worked. [grenade]

Priceless, absolutely pricesless. Kinda makes me think though, my grandad recently gave me a Baby Browning .25 and a High Standard H-D Military .22. Both had the magazines loaded with what appeared to be 40 year old ammo. Is it just something with WWII vets or do alot of ppl leave ammo in mags for years on end?

I wonder about that too. A friend of mine acquired a nice High Standard pistol by finding it (Condition 3) in a drawer in an end table at his grandmother's house. She said she'd forgotten all about it. The ammo had verdigris. The mag spring and recoil spring were limp. A gunsmith brought it back to life. I cycle my home defense ammo at least every 6 months or so. It's overdue. Thanks for the reminder.

I'll be sure to shed a tear for that dumbass.(Yeah, right)

Utterly BEAUTIFUL! A very fitting end for a very dirty dirtbag. I piss on his grave, at least in spirit. The owner of the pistol should get credit for the kill. That'd never happen around my house. We don't save old ammo, we shoot it up! It doesn't last long. Five years, tops. It gets rotated regularly, particularly the ammo that's kept in magazines for 'just in case' situations. That is guaranteed to be replaced every year with fresh factory ammo. Incidentally, I was just given some old ammo. When did they stop making paper hulled 12 gauge shotshells with paper wads and/or paper stickers on the nose of the round, telling the load?

Its that kind of heartwarming story I needed to read before going to my evidence class to be bored to death for 2 hours!
