I've seen this before - but maybe one of you haven't - if not, enjoy!

This is a true account recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida.

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, "I HAVE A GUN, AND I KNOW HOW TO USE IT! GET OUT OF THE CAR!" The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad.

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why, . it was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12 packs of beer in the front seat.

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car-jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

Moral of the story? If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it memorable. :shock:

That's a great story! Go Granny. :-B-:

My own Granny died of a stroke at age 82, with her S&W under her pillow.

My Mom passed on at 87 never having owned a firearm and always wondering if I had a screw loose because I owned so many! ;) I hope she is in a better place today and is enlightened about the joy of owning firearms!

That is so funny!!! That could be me in 40 years ;)
I hope you never lose your love for guns. My grandmother, a widow, raised my father on a farm 10 miles from the nearest paved road. Guns were a way of life. When she had a taste for squirrel she'd place her order in the morning before I left for school.
"I want a young one, no old bos or sows and shoot him in the head, don't want my meat messed up." If I dared to use a shotgun, my arse was grass.
Miss my granny, she died in 1972.
