    72 y/o opens fire with .357 Smith and Wesson

    Army vet's wife, 72, fends off intruder with .357 Magnum | Marine Corps Times | marinecorpstimes.com

    Long story short, 72 y/o woman was on phone with 911. 911 couldnt respond in time, so she opened fire!

    Love hearing this story, reminds me of my grandfather, who's a vietnam vet, and my grandmother who still own M1s and revolvers.

    If this is the one I'm thinking of, they have released the 911 tape. You can hear the woman saying "back up!" and then shooting. I think I remember hearing that she missed the attacker but he did stop his aggression, which is the whole point, and he was arrested shortly afterwards. It sounds like she did well.

    OK, I just read the article. I like this paragraph:

    The stunned intruder apologized to Cooper after she fired, she recalled, telling her, “I’m sorry, ma’am. I’m leaving. Please don’t shoot.”

    I'm glad that she was able to defend herself. Thats is exactly why we have guns. Good for her
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

    Reminds me of the quote from "Tombstone"............"You called down the thunder, well now you got it!"
