    Granny get your gun...I like it!

    Nothing pleases me more than a dirtbag choosing the WRONG granny to hassle.

    I was buying ammo a couple weeks ago and offered assistance to a 70ish YO woman who was looking for gun cleaning products. I explained the differences of some of the products, she has a Charter Arms .38 for self defense. Her final comment after she thanked me was I think I will call the guy who is training me. I was really encouraged to here her say she was getting training.

This was way back when, CCW was very much illegal. She has been dead a long time, and that 357 resides in my own safe now.
    Your personal story reminds me of one of my own, about my uncle. I used to spend summers at his home, by by Rockaway Beach, NY, back in the early 1970's. He drove a cab at night, and one night, right after eating dinner and getting ready to leave, his gun fell out of his pants. It was an old Colt that he carried during the Vietnam War. I was amazed, never having seen a real one before. He shrugged, shoved it back into his jeans, and left for work. Concealed carry was also very much illegal in NY then, and that hasn't changed. My cousin carries it now, legally, in Texas, and was allowed to take it to Afghanistan with him when he was deployed there a few years ago.

    Haha. Love this thread, my own story:
    We t to the range last month for a fundraiser for a local cop whose wife died delivering their third child, tragic story. (the range raised over $13,000 in about 8 hrs) but as we were walking in, there was an OLD lady coming out from the shooting lanes as she tucked her pistol into the handlebar bag of her WALKER! Gun totin' granny. Made my day!

    Many years ago a friend of mine told me that the Russians aren't afraid of the U.S. military. They are afraid of Granny setting on the front porch in her rocking chair with the double barrel shotgun on her lap. I to think she could put that little gun to good use.

    I see more and more older people looking at and buying guns nowa days. I think they are starting to realize what most of us has known for years. Also does this mean guns and self defense are becoming more acceptable? I personally think so, and bless all the older folks who are carrying too.

    The more the better. Better odds that the !#$$%bad guys pick on the wrong dude, granny or younger person.

    I forgot to add that it's great that she carries as well. I can just see her now, custom leather holster trimmed in some sort of exotic skin, matching belt, dual mag pouch, pepper blaster, and a big smile on her face . Now I can see what happens if a BG tries to jack her .

    God bless the great state of Tennessee. I feel bad for those in states who have to be paranoid about their gun showing. Here? Just another non-event.

    Good for granny too! lol Hope she gets a holster.

    Just out of curiosity, when you say she pulled it out of her shirt... exactly how was she carrying it in her shirt? Was it in a pocket?
    Well....from where she reached, I'd say it was in her bra.

    I'm glad that men have finally gotten equal rights and now receiving payback for all those times we told granny "your slip is showing"

    Holster I though that's what their bra was for to carry other stuff besides their bosoms ... maybe she could get a bra with a middle-pocket for her gun in suede

    Yeah, that's old school! Used to call them church guns, if they were shiny. We had to take grannies guns away about 5 yrs ago. She's 94 now, dementia is taking it's toll. I watched her shoot at a guy in our back yard one night. We came home another night and there were 2 bullet holes in the window. Seems some kids were doing donuts in the dirt road across from our house. After the 3rd time granny decided to take care of the problem. They never came back. Don't mess with granny. Both pistols are cleaned up and in my safe now. An old Iver Johnson 38 safety revolver and an Italian .22 pepperbox.
