Rusty, please don't let the damn criminal element run you down. Those miserable SOB's will love bringing you down to an emotional dead end that they find in their daily lives. The World's good folks have to find a way to rise above it, or otherwise what is it at all about?
Your long barreled Luger, particularly the rare snail drum is what should most likely raise the alarm bells to the authorities/pawn shops to catch the scum bags.
Try to keep your head up Rusty, there are a lot of people pulling for you!
