self-control and good 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 in her own words: "While out walking along the edge of a bayou just outside Fort Lauderdale with my soon-to-be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging us with its jaws wide open. It must have been protecting it's nest because it 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 really incredible."
