Seventy-five-year old Eileen Watkins of Indianapolis, Ind., stashed a .32 revolver in a closet shoebag and didn't have it out for five years. But the gun came in handy when an intruder broke into the five-room house where she lives with her 87-year-old husband. The doughty Mrs. Watkins retrieved the pistol, gave chase and shot the burglar in the arm.
