This is a story of self-control and marksmanship against a fierce predator, by a brave cool-headed woman with a small pistol. It all happened just outside The Villages community in Florida.
While walking along the edge of a pond, with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator; the alligator suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging at 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 .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.
