see administrator immediately after the Gimblett Media Hr Department confiscates my computer I n Holster Hi Weapon of choice the telephone dial gun dealerships all over the country to seek advice it's GonNa be almost impossible there may not be any type of record because it could just be in some private collectors collection it's going to be hard for you I'm GonNa tell you straight up you know when it was sold you have any type of serial number of course a serial number Scott doesn't know the serial number but he admits there's one person who might Dunkel Bill My dad's older brother Yeah Mr Christmas morning himself are you in touch with your uncle I am I mean not a ton but I yeah so maybe he would he would be a place to start now I'm I mean I of course there's a cloud of anxiety might my chest starts tightening when I think about actually doing it shortness of breath would come next and then burning in the chessel region it was sounding to this reporter like the healing process had already begun but maybe we could both do it it now you do a three person call so if me on the line as emotional fabra later Scott dials up uncle bill style a good Mr Goldstein high after Scott Ni- jockey over who will hide behind who's petticoats Scott boldly peers out from behind my petticoats asks Uncle Bill about the serial number I believe in throwing low serial number but unfortunately we never took a photo of the writing on the inside of the holster you don't you don't have the serial number I do not but the moment we bring up the gun it's Christmas morning all over again a piece of history of his history that was part of what formed him to be a man that I knew and that's about all we have from him from that era and now we don't have that the bill speaks of the gun it's as though Scott the person responsible for its disappearance isn't there even when he pipes up to defend themselves gun this appear to help beat his habit now that is really pissed at it yeah I paid off resent handy with his dad wasn't like I was going to go and beat him up anything but I was pissed he felt the need to quote keep it safe doesn't keep us I do still feel like you you fall to your brother for that Somewhat the reality of World War Two let's is that they didn't really like to talk about the war we didn't have PTSD as back doses the damage was us doubtless with alcohol then he lawful lot of them too much and that's how they self medicated after the war Scott's grand bother became an alcoholic he spent his days in an easy chair with a glass in his hand in in the evenings he kept a bottle of whisky on the nightstand to make sure he didn't wake up in with drawl lake the Lugar it seems addiction has also been part of Scott's family for decades Before getting off the phone uncle bill does offer a couple helpful bits of information he tells us that the Lugar was a mouser and that returning World War Two soldiers were often issued something called bring back papers documents detailing any items they took home if he could find those papers bill says there's chance the gun serial number might be there he also says that if anyone has the bring back papers it'd be Scott's older sister Mary the family record key her and also one of Scott's biggest supporters Kiva good person and an honest fun when Scott was jail Mary was the one who visited most even money for the commissary and helped him with his court case when I explained the Lane Scott's going through to get their dad's gun back Mary becomes emotional the whole thing reminds her of a story from when they were Kids Mary Scott and their dad shopping accidentally bookmarks from store because he thought we paid for it and we hadn't and he cried all the way home and made us go all the way back to the storm of our way to return it Mary still sees her little brother as the same meaning kid who's trying to make things right she's not sure she has the bring back papers but wants to help so over the weekend she digs through their grandfather's old stuff she finds wartime postcards letters to their grandmother photos of their grandfather and his army buddies huddled in foxholes and then she found the actual document the bring back papers holy cow okay so what and I know it's pretty crazy yeah allowing with almost looks like it has a copy dame drake through the metal and then it has just written underneath it Lugar pestle serial number four five nine running wow.
