Self defense, does not matter what he used. In my eyes he served his country and saved lives and this is just once where he faught for himself.

Great story!! Our Vets still believe in the Oath they took years ago. Really glad Mr.Ricciutti is unharmed. And I hope he keeps fresh ammo in that Luger!!.
