Dubya's Prized Pistol

It's no surprise that George W. Bush loves guns. Apparently, he particularly treasured the pistol found with Saddam Hussein in December 2003 when Delta Force Soldiers captured the Iraqi president, The New York Times reports. Strangely, the gun was unloaded when Saddam was found in his spider hole. Bush kept the 9 millimeter Glock 18C, which was mounted and encased in glass, for nearly five years and showed it to Oval Office visitors because it represented a presidential success. The gun will go on display at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, once the library is built.
