Johannesburg - Oscar Pistorius appears to have an affinity for guns.
According to The New York Times in January last year, Pistorius mentioned in an interview with reporter Michael Sokolove that a security alarm in the house had gone off the previous night, and he had grabbed his gun and went downstairs.
“I asked what kind of gun he owned,” Sokolove wrote.
Sokolove described how the Blade Runner fetched his 9mm handgun and two boxes of ammunition and drove them to a nearby shooting range, “where he instructed me on proper technique. Pistorius was a good coach”.
Sokolove said Pistorius encouraged him: “If you practised, I think you could be pretty deadly.”
