smallest caliber to use to stop alligator

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, Louisianawith 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 Jetfire .32 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.
smrobs and Shropshirerosie like this.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
