A pensioner in northern Italy has been arrested after he allegedly stormed into a bar brandishing a .357 magnum handgun following a row over the queue for the slot machines.
The 73-year-old had reportedly had an argument on Saturday with customers at the bar in the town of Cilavegna, Pavia, over the queue to the slot machines.
Apparently unable to resolve the dispute, the pensioner turned up at the bar the following day with a lust for vengeance and a Smith & Wesson 357 magnum revolver, a knuckle-duster and a flick-knife.
Police were called to the scene where they arrested the man, who has a clean record. No injuries were reported.
But, as police discovered, the handgun was just the tip of the iceberg. When they inspected the man's home they uncovered a huge arsenal of weapons.
The pensioner's collection included a Stahl shotgun, a Franchi Para rifle, a Beretta semi-automatic shotgun, a silencer and around a hundred bullets.
Two more guns found at the man's home, including a Beretta shotgun and a Breda rifle, had been registered.
Police also found two bayonets, a sabre, two machetes and a samurai sword. The weapons have now been seized.
