    Two more dirt bags hit the dust. That sure was an ugly looking pair. If these two ever get out they will commit another violent crime. Its too bad that the guy that was shooting didn't get both of them. It would have stopped someone from getting hurt at a later date.

    There are old men and there are bold men. Don't tangle with an old bold man.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    I had an 89 y.o. neighbor that used a hammer and drove off three teenagers trying to rob him at knife point in his home. He left a definite impression on them!

    Good News...Two More Down...

    I'm stunned that one of the dirtbags is a girl...I guess I shouldn't be too surprised...but it really requires 'out of the box' thinking for me...

    Congrats to the old guy...hope he practices a little more...for the next two...

    Cowardly little puke beating an old woman... I hope he gets a real warm welcome in prison!

    Too bad the scumbag is still alive. Probably getting his surgery at taxpayer expense, too. (He's out robbing people for handfuls of money; do you think he has any insurance?!)

    The Normans fought back. Jimmy Norman was able to get away long enough to get a gun. He fired two shots, hitting Irons in the chest with both, according to the report.
    Damn good shooting! Bravo!
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    The WWII generation is in their 80’s now, a lot of tough old birds out there. Audie Murphy used to sleep with a loaded .45 under his pillow. I sincerely doubt he was the only one.

    They just covered this on the local tv news here tonight. In case you were wondering, as I know all of you gun nuts were, here is the info on the gun and ammo:

    38 spl winchester white box 125gr semi-jacketed hp. The gun was a revolver of course, and was kept tucked between the mattress and box spring with the but sticking out. I don't know the barrel length, sorry.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Too bad the old man did not kill the perp. Now the taxpayers will have to foot the bill for his hospital stay.
