Title: What's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?

What's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?

Here's her story in her own words:
 
"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 and 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 .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.  The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible, and his life insurance was a real big bonus!"

That will work.
Makes me wonder if a husband did the same thing recently in Florida where a gator took a women while walking her dog.

     ;D    I don't know about gators there. There are well over 1 million here in Florida. Since my ex moved here, I'm staying away from water, even in my whiskey!

During a divorce case, you can't trust a woman with a pulse, and in all other situations use caution. I think a 25 caliber Beretta is plenty of gun for self protection if you can hit the knee cap "every" time. ;D
