Florida Woman Stops 12' Alligator with a .22 cal 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's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?
Here's her story in her own words:
"While walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in the Villages discussing a property settlement with my soon-to-be ex-husband, and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water.
It 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 .22 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 also a big bonus!

oldie from a REAL oldie (big eight oh end of Dec). Contrary to belief of some, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the Cobra, grizzly bear, wart hog or similar. It is the dreaded CROCOGATER! WTF is THAT?? Gonna xplain:
It gots the head of an alligator at one end, head of a crocodile on the other. So, what makes it so dangerous
