Somehow I got it in my head she was already OUTside her house, but on her property. And that she wanted to know how to GO INside and "*tactically" clear her house,”. (I think I’ve seen too many cop shows.)

I am tempted to question the collective brain power of some posters here. Let's set the stage. A 48 year old woman. A bolt action .22 rifle. No training.
House clearing is rocket science. You screw it up and you die. You should only attempt to clear a structure alone as a last resort. I wear armor, carry a Glock and an AR, and still wait for backup (unless there is an active shooter/assault in progress).
Get mama some basic training with a gun. When she hears someone down the hall she needs to lock herself in the bathroom with the gun and a cell phone and call 911. If the goblin comes throught the bathroom door............ shoot 'em. House cleared.

Ok I love my mom, we always joke around about her being cheap. I'm 24, I've been to 4 different countries ranging from Columbia to Iraq all for business. She would actually be using a 9mm not the 22. My old man is still alive and no she's not single, the reason he can't really do much in a home invasion is he's pretty much blind in both eyes and moves about as fast as a turtle he had an accident and broke one shin and sprained the other one is so beat up he really can't walk. She isn't really that good with guns she can hit what she's aiming at but not at far range.

My mom was a stay at home mom, I was out working at the age of 7 started out working with animal crap, then when I was 18 I got a job with security still doing it.

Even if she missed, the blast would knock an intruder on his bottom.

I was well over 48 when I got interested in guns. I just immersed myself here in this forum, met gun loving people and am learning along the way.

To be fair, I'd probably clear my house with a baseball bat.

There's just no sense to adding powder burns in the carpet, and

holes in the walls to all the blood I'm going to have to clean up later...
