Florida woman stops alligator attack using a small 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 is the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself? 
A Beretta Jetfire testimonial.... Here is 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 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."
"His insurance was the big bonus. I’m comfortable now." 

I know it has been a while since I have been here but busy busy with working and studying.  Never mind, I am joining in with Annie over at Friday Smiles!!

Have a great weekend everyone.

Excellent work! It's been a while since I've been here too, but glad to hear you're busy. I actually had a flying visit to Abergavenny recently, but it was pretty much "arrive, go to wedding, go home again". Will let you know when I'm in town, though as I'm in the States til November now, it won't be any time soon!

Hi there
A delightful card arrived today and I love it!
Thanks so much Sam. It really came at a time when it was much needed.

I have had friends and relatives staying over for a few days each (after the funeral. Not all could get the time off work on the actual day so came after to share memories and good times.
The last one left on Monday and forgot something...her cold...hahahaha
We have all been down for the count...Al and I and the grandkids and Carolyn and son-in-law.
So nice to see your creativity today!

Happy New Year Hettie and look forward to catching up on old and new times behind the bike sheds. Hugs Mr A(the 1st).
