An 81 year old man in Detroit was glad he had his .22 caliber revolver that he has owned since 1955 close by his side on the night of November 30.

The homeowner heard someone break into his sliding glass door by throwing a brick through it.

The elderly homeowner wasted no time in reaching for his old gun.

The homeowner waited in his bedroom, behind a closed door, hoping the intruder would leave. When the intruder opened the bedroom door is when the homeowner took action.

Without saying a word, the homeowner fired a shot at the intruder, who seemed surprised. The homeowner kept firing as the man tried to run from the home.

The intruder escaped, but only one bullet was recovered inside the home, leaving to some speculation that the intruder may have been hit.
