    Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With 25 Cal Pistol

    Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With 25 Cal Pistol

    This is a story of self control and marksmanship with an itsy bitsy shooter by a woman against a fierce predator.

    What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect yourself?

    The Beretta Jetfire:



    While out hiking in Alberta Canada with my boyfriend we were surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of no where. She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely aggressive. If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire with me I would not be here today!



    Just one shot to my boyfriend's knee cap was all it took…….the bear got him and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.



    It's one of the best pistols in my collection……...

    Too funny........I wonder if he is still her boyfriend? If he survived that is.
