Pistol, ammo stolen from Gun Show in Del Mar

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR (CNS) - Someone apparently walked away from the Crossroads of West Gun Show with a semiautomatic .38-caliber Walther PPK and two clips each holding six bullets, it was reported Sunday.

A vendor reported the pistol -- James Bond's weapon of choice in films such as "Dr. No," "Goldfinger" and "For Your Eyes Only" -- missing Saturday after the show closed for the day, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The vendor told a sheriff's deputy a man and a woman had been at his booth where the unloaded gun was on display, and he realized it and two magazines were missing about 20 minutes before the 5 p.m. closing time.

The gun show, one of the largest in the country, continues today through 4 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Adult admission is $12, and children younger than 12 are free.
