It was 1983. My Grandfather and Grandmother (In their early 60's) arrived home from the theater at about 10:30 PM. They noticed the front window of the dining room was removed and stuff was moved around. They heard a noise in their basement and then the basement door slam. They called the cops and filed a report. They had apparently interrupted a burglary. The burglars stole cash and jewelry. That's it. My grandparents put in a security system, window bars, and my grandfather bought a 1911 like the one he carried in WWII. They're both 91 now and live in that same house. I found out about the 1911 last month. Wish he'd told me earlier. I'd like to have shot it.
...so does Grandpa still have the gun? maybe he'd let you borrow it?
Better yet, take grandpa shooting. I bet he would enjoy the activity.
A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.
