    I was thinkin' an older Taurus based on the grips.

    And a big thumbs up to the woman!

    Fairly solid story actually. She seems to have had the right mind set to keep her wits about her. I would have liked to see how the cops reacted when the 64 year old woman stopped the guy they were chasing. Haha.

    He's also fortunate he didn't jump into a backyard with a few Dobies, Rotties, Sheps, etc

    Could be that the car was rented to someone at the time, and the person who rented it would have to press charges.

    Could be EFMJ but I can't see the logic in using that in a revolver
