Woman stops gator attack with a small Beretta pistol.”
This is a story of self control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator. What is the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?
Here is her story:
While out walking along the edge of a bayou just below Houma, Louisiana, with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft., Alligator that suddenly emerged from the murky water and charged us with its large jaws wide open.
She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive.
If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!
Just one shot to my estranged husband’s knee cap was all it took. The alligator got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. It’s one of the best pistols in my collection! Plus, the amount I saved in lawyer’s fees was more than worth the purchase price of the gun.
