Default old people

my mom 48 wants me to train her in how to "*tactically" clear her house, she wanted to use my dads 22 bolt action I think I talked her into using the 9mm. Any suggestions?

*her words not mine

Leave the house, call 911, wait at a safe distance and location

Not me.....

Safe room... family, gun, and cell phone inside that room. call 911. An attack from one direction is much easier to defend than having to be aware of 360 degrees, while trying to get outside.... especially for an elderly person, who may not be as "fleet of foot" as some younger folks.

Just my two cents.... to each his/her own.

the title was meant as a joke, my mom hates loud noises and recoil so that where the 22 came in. My mom is really cheap she washes spastic wear, she also won't buy anything new I mean anything if she need a car door she's go to the junk yard it might be rusted have a several bullet holes in it and blood stain all over but she'll buy it, she's pretty much crazy. Even if I set up her closet as a safe room she still probably wouldn't use it.

so ya...

48 ain't old!

I suggest you get her interested in a man. A man that likes guns, already has some experience and training with firearms...and thrifty women.
