Ohio Woman Says No to Criminals Twice in 4 Months .357-Style
The Daily Sheeple ^ | October 3rd, 2013 | Kimberly Paxton

Attn: Criminals. Betty Collins’ home in Toledo, Ohio is the WRONG HOUSE at which to attempt your illegal endeavors.

Collins, who is working on her PhD in criminal justice, is one woman you don’t want to mess with. She has proven this not just once, but twice in the past 4 months, detaining intruders on her property until police could arrive with her handy .357 Magnum.

Despite the fact that her home has been the target of theft numerous times in the past, Collins is staying put. “I’m not moving. This is my home. I will continue to protect my home. That’s what the Second Amendment is for.”

She certainly has no qualms whatsoever about using her second amendment rights.

Back in May, Collins’ car was broken into two mornings in a row. The third incident escalated to an attempted home invasion, which she efficiently halted.

The would-be intruder, later identified as 31-year-old Kyle Caldwell of Temperance, Michigan, started kicking the front door, in an attempt to get inside. Collins said she screamed at him as loud as she could, saying firmly, “Get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.” Caldwell continued kicking the door, so Collins repeated herself, “Get off my porch! I have a gun! I will shoot you!” He still continued, so she opened the door and Caldwell then found his face 5 inches from the receiving end of a loaded .357.

That’s what I want ... a nice either 4” or 6” .357 Python.

So he did and he stayed there until the cops got there. He had no choice.

Wrong. He had a choice. He chose. He survived.

I don’t blame you. A Colt Python is about as good as it gets in the revolver world. I’ve got an S&W Model 19 and it’s pretty sweet, but I would love to get my hands on a Python.

My brother has one but I want one of my own. I’ve shot it several times and using two-hand I have no problem with it.

I recently received a gift of a 4 inch nickel plated Colt Python that was manufactured in 1976. It is a magnificent pistol.

I figure it’s above 95% NRA condition, and I have the original box. There’s a bit of honest holster wear, but that’s it. I’ts been fired already, so I’m going to go shoot this bad boy on Sunday.
