Tough old gal, good for her! Too bad the perp got away, though.

People get the government they deserve.

Any bets that the ammunition in it was loaded when she got it twenty years ago?
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

In those parts, I'm surprised she wasn't arrested. She failed to take in to account the rights of the home invader to her property.
Good on her, though.

Great story Steve. It's nice to see some good gun stories. Glad the police did not take her in.

Around here, an old lady that shot at someone that had broken down the door to her home WOULD have the Sheriff's Dept to contend with.

They would take her revolver from her.

and clean it, reload it for her, advise her to aim lower next time, and wish her a good night.
Country folks don't screw around.

What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
