I was notified today that I can go and pick up a .45 pistol that was stolen from my residence almost 5 years ago.
I had actually given up hope of ever seeing it again. The buggers removed the whole safe that was even bolted to floor and wall.
It is however a bittersweet reunion due to the change in firearm laws down here. I had the .45 and a .38 spl registered for self defense, but now I'm only allowed one.
Which to keep? The .45 packs a punch and has 1 more round, but in case of a misfire you can't beat a revolver, which is a 6 shot.
I have no idea of the condition of the pistol, but it was probably doing the rounds through the gangster community, so I don't reckon it's going to look to great.
I'm surprised the serial number was not filed off.
Anyway, I'll have to wait till Monday before seeing for myself.
