    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?

    A Beretta Jetfire testimonial.

    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 charging 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 gator 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.

    Good one! Of course, sad to say she also could have drawn a goal line on the ground around her. But them the ex would still be here.

    Lol... I heard that one before, but it's still funny. It was the bear attack version.
