A great-grandfather has told how he used a baseball bat to fight off two thieves who were ransacking his gun cabinet and stole a cache of weapons.

The 70-year-old grandfather-of-10, who has one great-grandchild, told Perthnow he swung his bat at both young men who were smashing into his gun cabinet and attempting to steal his utility at his Alexander Heights home early today.

The fit and feisty grandad, who wanted to be known only as John, said he was struck in the body with the sledgehammer the robbers were using to break into his gun cabinet.

“I’ve got a crook hip but I’m not as sore as they are,” he said.
