    Wonder how feasable it would be for maybe a gunshop in her area to loan her a gun until she gets hers back? Kinda like checking out a librairy book..on loan for a while until you don't need it anymore..

    Well my only thought is, if firing the gun is going to knock her down and cause her to lose the weapon, she might as well get a bigger caliber. Maybe a 357 now. It wold be nice if the guy wasn't able to do much after she shot him.

    It is a sad story. I always feel extra bad about senior citizens being victimized and trying to protect themselves, plus the mental/physical affects that may remain with them afterwards. Not a perfect world, but I wish that their remaining years would be peaceful w/o this sort of thing.

    "she opened the door to the laundry room to find a nearly naked intruder" <-----HEY, could that have been the same BG that was recently in Nicholas Cages' house?

    I guess this story kind of blows the necessity for training and practice before being allowed to defend oneself. She never fired the gun before and was able to stop the attack.

    I don't think additional training would have served her any better in this case. Point, pull trigger. Lady 1, BG 0.

    It's sad that a person was shot for doing his laundry.

    Not that I am passing any judgement on the ol'lady, but think god he wans't the evil scum bag we often think of. He could have killed her! He took her gun, after she droped it.

    That reminds me, anyone watch 'The Unit' last night?

    Watch "The Unit" every week. Thought it was one of the weaker episodes. But it is still a great show!

    FYI--.38 is the same caliber as .357.

    He didnt get shot because he was doing his laundry. He got shot because he broke into someones house.
