Another good reason to have a concealed weapons permit.
Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small .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 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. 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. His life insurance was a big bonus!
That technique works on bears, too, which is why I no longer hike solo.
“You weren’t expecting that were you? “
Aw, Ur jus trying to whip up interest in the new development Ur building up the road from The VILLAGES.... /sarc
Ironic - because I bought a lot in a gated community in the SC low country. On a cul-de-sac with a fresh water pond. The envy of the neighborhood until it was invaded by alligators, wild turkeys and boars. Sold it!!!!!
Why? Sounds like it would be a good Swamp People episode & hunting stand!
I dont have to be able to out run the gator...
You’re supposed to ping me for these things.
I know what you mean. Sometimes even Wild Turkey doesnt help with bores.
Yup - Uncle Joe at the Villages https://youtu.be/NmRXH7RkCZQ
