Geez… and people called me paranoid for keeping an M1911 in 38 Super Auto (Loaded with Winchester Silver Tips) under the sofa cushions.
I grew up not 10 miles from there in Glen Ridge, NJ
For some odd reason every house on my block was burglarized at least once
except mine… until I moved out… I always figured it was because of what I put out in the trash…
Only Rarely did I not have half a garbage pail of fired 12ga shotshell hulls
out on the curb…
I shot Trap & Skeet competitively and I was only throwing away the hulls
that were worn & cracked so that they were no longer suitable for reloading.
But just the sight of that many 12ga shells sent a powerful message.
