    Ohio, "Birthplace of Presidents" and apparently, old men with guts.

    I read the linked article...and good for the old boy!!
    But, I see no mention of an AK-47. Was that just something the OP added to juice up his thread? If so, I hope the moderators close this one...

    Please correct me if I'm wrong...

    The 70+ year old man should have tried to subdue the 24 year old assailant by wrestling or calling the police rather than resorting to brutish violence like this. Just kidding. Kudos to the ole man.

    WHIOTV is reporting that the robber used an "assault rifle," not that I'd trust them to recognize one.

    I Presented Links To The Story....

    I wasn't on the scene, nor have I examined the firearm in question. If your curiosity is that intense:

    http://www.cityofdayton.org/departments/police/Pages/default.aspx

    That page lists all the contact information available that I can find, call them up and ask for the officer who was quoted, and confirm with him exactly what it was.

    "The shooter will not face any charges."

    The 7 best words in the article! :)

    The photo shows what looks like a WASR, also colloquially referred to as an AK47. It's not select fire, but it *is* in all other respects an AK-pattern rifle.

    I wish they'd mentioned the guy's name, I'd love to shake the guy's hand and treat him to whatever beverage he prefers. I'm tired of seeing people lay down to the little slugs we have in this town. A few years back, their game of choice was going downtown and finding elderly men and women and beating the hell out of them for giggles.

    Maybe this incident will quell the rise of violence against older folks around here. I applaud the man's actions.

    It was a good shoot independent of whether the goblin used an AK47 or a bazooka!!

    I get those warm fuzzies every time I read articles like this.

    I always love it when the young and dumb get schooled by the old and wise:D

    You know the older I get the less <&@% I'm willing to put up with. If I live to 70 I'll probably be that ornery to. :D

    Good on the old fart. Don't put with any stuff from those punks!

    Now lets see if the wire services pick this story up and it get printed in major mainstream newspapers on the front page, and mentioned on TV stations outside of the Ohio area.

    Sure.... :rolleyes:

    This 72 year old guy didn't adhere to that foolishness about being "too old" or "outgunned".
    I always tell new shooters that it's preparation and mindset that matter most.

    Stupid punks like picking on old men but I tell ya,that is a bad move. Old guys are seasoned and don't take ****. Good job for the old man!

    Knowing the leanings of the DDN, I wouldn't be surprised if they did an editorial demanding the old guy be arrested....How dare he protect himself?
