    Never too old to be prepared

    I'd like to see a pic of the Luger however!

    From the article:
    During an early morning break-in at his Western Pennsylvania home on Tuesday, an 84-year-old Korean War veteran blasted a burglar in the neck with a German Luger he had carried in battle, police said.

    In a scene that appeared to be pulled from the pages of the Clint Eastwood film "Gran Torino," grizzled war hero Fred Ricciutti grabbed his battlefield sidearm after he heard someone bust through a kitchen door of his Elizabeth Township house at around 4:30 a.m.
    "I said, 'Halt, who's there?' " Ricciutti told Pittsburgh station WPXI.
    "I'm thinking, friend or foe, he shouldn't be there that time of day."
    Ricciutti fired once, hitting suspect Raymond Hiles, 25, in the neck.

    Not sure if this is the one referred to in the article, but the Luger has an interesting history, according the the description in this vid.

    Also shows how it basically worked.

    It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
