    Probably UGLY: Nude 91 yr old Homeowner Nabs Burglar with a Revolver !!!

    When 91 yr old Lake Worth, Florida resident Robert E. Thompson awoke to hear his dog barking in his backyard, he immediately grabbed this trusty Colt revolver.

    Not bothering to dress ( Thompson sleeps in the nude ), he went out the back and immediately confronted the trespasser.

    When the burglar ( later identified as being Jose Pasqual, 26 ) saw the nude 91 yr old screaming at him and waving his revolver wildly, he froze at the sight, and decided to surrender.

    Thompson kept Pasqual at gunpoint, until the police were able to eventually arrive and take him into custody.

    Although uninjured when police arrived, Thompson became confused when police officers order him to put down his old revolver. Thompson immediately dropped the revolver down to the hard concrete pavement of his back patio, where the gun discharged, striking Thompson in the leg. Thompson was then taken by an ambulance to Delray Medical Center for treatment of a minor gunshot wound, and was released a few days later.

    Pasqual was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a burglary charge.

    Here is a full news report of the bizarre incident:

    Now see, if he had dropped a Glock with 3 internal safeties, nothing would have happened...I'm just sayin'...

    Ninety-one years old? Congrats to this home owner...

    How did you get caught ? Well, this old naked man came out.... he'll be the biggest joke in jail.

    Must have been a much older Colt without the bar.

    That news story was a laugh-out-loud one for me.
    I'm glad the old gent made it through ok.
    He'll even have a 'war-wound' to brag about.
    Thanks for posting the story.

    With a sight like that I bet Pasqual sobered up real fast.

    I was about to say, any story that involves a naked 91-year-old man is automatically in the ugly category regardless of the rest of the story.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    So if you drop the gun, as ordered, and it hits the police officer, do you go to jail?

    Funny story.

    Finally a story that aint dressed up.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Good for the old fella using all of his "tactical resources"!

    Maybe the popo should start saying "place the gun on the ground".

    How did that happen? Can a revolver discharge with impact if it is in SA?

    Quite possible if hammer is cocked (SA mode) since most revolvers have only a 3-5 lb trigger pull with the hammer back. Also if it is a Colt SAA or like the three screw Rugers there is no transfer bar and the firing pin rests directly on the primer and a blow to the hammer will cause it to discharge.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I wonder why he pulled back the hammer if he was just going to hold someone and not shoot them. I guess it's just a difference in the old vs. new school of thought. Oh well, at least no one died and the perp got caught.

    If the revolver was as old as him, I suspect it might not have some of the modern safety features...???
