    Yes, this pistol-packin' Mama gave the thug everything he deserved except an eteranal dirt nap.

    69-year-old Ala. woman shoots 18-year-old intruder

    DECATUR, Ala. (AP) -- A pistol-packing 69-year-old woman in northern Alabama believes intruders will think twice before messing with her again. Police said Ethel Jones shot an 18-year-old man in the stomach when she found him inside her bedroom at her home in Decatur. Jones said she sleeps with her gun under a pillow next to her and said she grabbed it after hearing a door rattle shortly before 3 a.m. Monday.

    Police said the suspect removed a window air conditioner to get inside the home. He was in the hospital and faces a charge of second-degree burglary.

    Don't look now Ethel! But she did and she defended herself! Way to go! Maybe this will help the 18 year old perp to focus on a more honest career.

    Congrats to this 'experienced' lady. Nice shooting, but hang the dirtbag!

    Wow, did this low-life pick the wrong house! Nothing like a little good news to start the day; thanks for posting this.

    He got away the first time with a slap on the wrist probably and decided to try his luck again. Bad idea. I am glad she put a hitch in his getty up. Maybe this will be a lesson learned for him, and a life style change. His next bad decision could put him 6 feet under.

    Can anyone identify that pistol? I wonder if it's an old Iver Johnson or something.



    Just goes to show, a gun doesn't have to be 'nice' to do it's job and save your life. Her photo would make a good avatar! Also, good finger / muzzle control. I wonder if she was coached for the photo or if she just knows how to handle firearms properly?
