Did she shoot it in the house?!? If not, why did she bring it inside?








Dinner? :)

Looks like a Nutria. What is it anyway? Also, I as well would like to know why she is showing it off inside the house?!?

That was posted at 11:40. I bet the damn things ready to eat right now.

By the way, thats about the same size as my neighbors cat. Probably as tasty too.

I forgot to ask. What kind of gun is that. I thought it was single barrel shotgun until i saw the lever on the bottom.

Oh yeah, Cool Mama there Woad Yurt.

With all the coming election side shows, it is truly inspiring to see some good old American culture and the people who brought it to us.

May God bless her.

Rifle looks like a well worn Browning BLR Lightweight `81.

It's an Ithaca single shot shotgun, lever action break barrel. Interesting design. :)

^^^ That sounds more plausible than my guess.

That is kick ass.

Looks like a groundhog/woodchuck/land beaver/whistlepig. How'd she shoot it? Off hand?

Another good reason to call it the Greatest Generation.

One of my Grandmothers used to shoot gofers because there was a bounty that she could collect by bringing gofer feet someplace in town. There was always a .22 rifle and a string of gofer feet on the wet porch.

My other grandmother used to shoot "at" gators to keep them away from her yard.

I'm not getting it. A lever an a single shot? How does this work?

That gun is definitely an Ithaca Mod 66 "SuperSingle". Looks like a 20ga version

http://www.ithacagun.com/model66schematic.html

It's single shot shotgun where the breech opens/closes and locks via the lever (just the thing for someone with arthritis).

My Mom sent the picture to me but she isn't the one in the picture. She sent me an email with some pictures of cool older folks. I just thought this lady was kinda great and might be appreciated here. Sorry if I unintentionally misled anyone. This one was also in the email:

I love the fact that the photo was taken in the kitchen. It's got to be in Kentucky or West Virginia. I've known a bunch of Grannies just like that!

Those of you knocking grannie for bringing a groundhog into the kitchen have obviously not ever eaten one. Slow cook them with onions, garlic and 'taters, they're alright. I won't go so far as to say delicacy, but not bad. Dutch oven is just the ticket.

Oh, and that's an awesome pic, by the way.

Tactical Granny-Camo and a Tactical Garden Shotgun (Ithaca .410 single shot). Very effective; I like it. :)
