<br /> Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small Beretta Pistol<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Another good reason to have a concealed weapons permit.<br /> <br /> <br /> *This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator.*<br /> <br /> <br /> *What's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?*<br /> <br /> <br /> *Here's her story in her own words:*<br /> <br /> <br /> "While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in The Villages with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement 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.*<br /> <br /> *If I had not had my little Beretta .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!*<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible. His life insurance was a big bonus!â*<br /> <br /> Received this in an email from a friend early today. : )<br />

That's awesome.<br /> <br /> At age 13 at Boy Scout summer camp, a bear came into our campsite and we all ran away. The bear could care less, he wanted (and got) our garbage. <br /> <br /> After that, the counselors yelled at us for running, saying its the exact wrong thing to do because you cannot outrun a bear. <br /> <br /> Being a wiseass, I said "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun one other person". They were even less happy after that.

Not to mention a new set of custom made luggage and a purse and shoes to match.
