Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small Beretta Pistol

Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small Beretta Pistol



Another good reason to have a concealed weapons permit.

*This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator.*


*What's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?*


*Here's her story in her own words:*


“While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in ‘The Villages’ with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began 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 .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. The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible, and his life insurance was a real big bonus!”

Yeah, I know!

and to think, some people buy big caliber like .45

to stop someone. even with a .22 caliber you can stop an attacker.
cheers Jim!

The .22 lr is one of the most developed of all rounds & can be quite effective.
Its weakest link is that rim fire ignition is inherently less reliable than center fire ignition...misfires.

Big bore fans - You can't kill 'em too dead.
Mouse gunners - There are no degrees of dead; dead is dead.

And so the dialog continues conversing

I think though that before guns sold checks should be made.

American people could not go backwards now guns are out, what would you do when crossing path of alligators laugh laugh
"I think though that before guns sold checks should be made."

Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms should be a convenience store - NOT a Government Bureau.

Sorry miclee do not agree, as mad n
Bad people buy guns.

Like driving a lethal weapon (a car) you take a test.

Guns are lethal weapons so need lessons on shooting.

Good job my ex got off lightly, grin we dont sell lethal weapons here laugh laugh

I agree.
But once they take our guns. Then we will have to re-write the joke to use a rock to the head. cheers
Jim,

Reminds me of the ole Tony Joe White song, Polk Salad Annie. She made the alligators look tame.. in comparison.
grin
"But once they take our guns. Then we will have to re-write the joke to use a rock to the head. cheers

So we'd best laugh while the NWO still allows us to.
Stupid NWO could screw up a two car parade. Or a good joke. very mad
