Ramey said the man told her he would leave. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.

She had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.

I was at the gun store buying some 6.5 Jap brass and 17 HMR ammo when I heard this.

I love it!

You know why she was able to do this?

1944 and Kentucky!

Miss. California would have peed her pants.

As will 95% of the A-netters. I got a US Grant says eventually, some anti-gun nut will bring up this Gun-Slinging Granny in a thread on Gun Control.

Not sure why you guys need everyone else's approval to have as many guns as you can carry. Glad you feel more manly with than without though.

Here's a few more heart warmers about old ladies and firearms - since you seem to love them so much.

Miss America 1944, Venus Ramey!

From Canada.com

Venus Ramey, 82, confronted a man on her farm in south-central Kentucky last week after she saw her dog run into a storage building where thieves had previously made off with old farm equipment.
Ramey said the man told her he would leave. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.

She had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-calibre handgun.

"I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it," she said. "If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be six feet under by now."

Ramey then flagged down a passing motorist, who called 911.

What she did was legal as was on her own property. That she shot out the tires on the crook''s 'getaway' car was a good way to get her point across to those fools without hurting them. I bet the crooks and maybe Ms. Ramey all soiled their undies.
