    Pretty badass that 90 something year old is laughing that experience off.

    Some 20 year old people would be looking for PTSD disability.

    WWII vets are just better than all of us.

    The only auto loader I own is a custom made 1911. It would be my shit hit the fan gun.

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Glad he was armed.
