    "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?

    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 suddenly
    emerging 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 Jet fire .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.

    Before I read this in its entirety, I was going to ask why the husband was not also armed if he was going into the bush with his soon to be ex.

    Must have been the guy's first marriage and possibly her second.

    Hopefully it wasn't R J Molinere or Jay Paul since this took place in Houma.
