    Oscar Pistorius said he drew his gun and went into combat mode after hearing the noise of a possible intruder at home, which turned out to be a washing machine, a guns expert testified Monday. Sean Rens, manager of the International Firearm Training Academy, also said he had many conversations about guns with Pistorius, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Rens said he met Pistorius in 2012 and trained in a gun range with him, and that Pistorius was seeking to collect guns.
