    My mom carried either a .357 or a J frame 38 everyday of her adult life until about a year ago...At the age of 79 she was diagnosed with "early onset dementia" and told me "I guess maybe you should keep these now" as she handed them to me....

    I'm sorry to hear about that. At least she has the presence of mind right now to realize it. My folks are getting up in age, too. I worry about it.

    I'm too old to go mano-a-mano with some gangbanging dirtbag and too fat to run (aside from being officially disabled), but I can still shoot prety well.

    It's great that women are tuning in to armed self defence. Hopefull it means that more criminal subhumans will fail Victim Selection 101.
    Better to perish in the fight for freedom than live to see defeat.

    Talking Dangerous man

And I'd watch as their eyes got the size of dinner plates and they would whisper: "Yeah, we kinda thought you'd say something like that... You sir, are a dangerous man." I'd had a time or two in the past when I'd had to prove that and the word spread as I moved from school to school as friends would call their buddies in the next school like: "Hey! You got a great new government teacher headed your way. He's former US Army Officer. Cool dude, but don't you mess with this guy, cuz bro, he'll kill you graveyard dead." And NO I never killed a student. I just let them know that I could and that I had no reservations about so doing in order to protect myself.
    I'll bet you have been called abrasive too. I really got a chuckle out of this one.

    I'm a 67 year old disabled veteran & former LEO whose best years came and went long ago. There is no way I could physically defend myself against a stronger, younger BG intent on mugging me. That's why I carry and why I would have no illusions about using my weapon in self defense.

    How have times changed ??? (When I was a kid, all women seemed to know how to shoot at least a rifle or shotgun).

    A popular hair salon for women, added a gun section .... of course oriented towards women. It's been so popular, they are talking about adding a small range next to it now.

    What are you guys calling old ??

    Stats on all licenses issued in our state, broken down by age & gender :

    males........20-50 =44.7%; 50+ = 55.3%; (60+ = 30.4%)
    females.....20-50 =46.2%; 50+ = 53.8%; (60+ = 22.7%)
    Overall......20-50 =45.0%; 50+ = 55.0%; (60+ = 29.0%)

    Too many don't realize how dangerous schools actually are. Students/kids these days have no regard for life at all. And it's no wonder, most of their parents are as bad or worse. I taught in Linden, NJ for several years after the military.

    I love how many of your mothers/grandmothers carry/carried .357s. They're surely not Elsie-carriers, they pack some oomph!

    Concern for fellow gun owner

    What impresses me in the Opie's story is this lady's concern for a fellow gun owner. She warned the Opie hoping to keep him out of trouble.
    In the big cosmic scheme of things, it's hardly important that mankind has squandered his... hey, where the hell did my beer go?

    My grandmother was the first person to teach me how to shoot... I was about 7 with an old lever action pellet gun. I remember being shocked at seeing a little nickle plated break action revolver (probably a .32) in her purse when I was 12 or 13. I asked her if it was legal and she said, "The only one who will find out if this little old lady has a gun is someone who needs to be shot!". This was in upstate NY, by the way. She didnt believe in licenses to carry... She saw no difference in it or the old 20GA Ithaca she used to put food on the table when times were tough. "Its part of being American", she would say.

    She too is now suffering from Alzheimer's... Lady was sharp as a tack (contract attorney) and its tough to see her mind slip. She handed several guns down to me (including that old 20GA), but no idea what happened to the little revolver. I'd love to have it.

    I know this has kind of gotten off topic, but women from that era were something special and it seems that we are slowly losing that. Strong, confident, and wouldn't take crap from anybody while breaking their back to keep their family safe and fed.

    Heres to granny (who would kill me if I ever called her that)!
