Rebbie Roberson, 74, watches TV from her green recliner every night inside her Texarkana home. Next to her always is a .38 caliber pistol.

When someone broke into her house on January 1, she showed him how tough a granny she can be.

When she came face-to-face with her intruder, the quick-thinking woman grabbed her gun and opened fire.

“I got my gun, when I did I pointed it at him,” she told Inside Edition. "I started shooting at him.”

When she called 911, she told the operator the burglar did not take anything because “he didn’t have time because I ran and got my gun."

She left bullet holes in the walls and claims she “wanted to kill him.”

The suspect remains at large.
