Congrats!!! Good for her and you too. I'm sure your mind will be more at ease knowing she will be able to defend herself.

Get her all the range time that she wants and will do ... especially at first.

Whatever the impetus, congratulations to your Mom for taking responsibility for her own safety. It'll open a whole host of questions (and it should). Hopefully, it'll get her thinking about overall security and a "layered" approach to it all, of which the firearm and being armed is only one part.
Way to go, Mom!
Now, if only I could get mine to believe self-defense has a rational part of our waking lives. That would be something.
I thought your mom had passed as well. Perhaps a better thread title would have been "Mom has seen the light!".
In any case, congrats to you and her!
