Skip to comments.OR:Pistol-Packing Grandma Starts Neighborhood 'Glock Block'

A grandmother in Milwaukie, Ore., is organizing a "Glock Block," a pistol-packing group of neighbors that she said she hopes will help deter crime in her community.
Coy Tolonen, 65, said the idea came to her last Thursday after she tried and failed to chase down a thief who ran away with her beloved bronze yard statue.
Later that evening, the grandmother of three said she realized a door to her home had been jimmied open, possibly by the same man she said stole her statue.
"It just made my blood run cold because our grandkids are playing here a lot, and one of them could have been snatched just as easily as the statue," she told ABCNews.com.
"These guys need to know if you're going to pick on a little old lady, then lots of the ladies I know are packing [guns]. They're sweet ladies but if it's their life, I'm sorry you're going to lose yours," Tolonen said.
The breast cancer survivor said she wasn't going to let anything jeopardize the safety of her or her family in their home, and so the "Glock Block" idea was born.

Good for them. Good for capitalism too - do they make a decent gun mount on a walker? Don’t mess with Granny!
After Katrina, I leaned a "Armed Community - Looters will be shot" board against the street sign. No problems

The Smith and Wesson Shooting team had a nice rig built up for Trevor Baucom (disabled vet, first pro wheelchair competitor), but that is for competition.
Body carry is always best.
Wonderful idea, Granny’s Glock Block!!!
