.25 semiauto V 12′ Alligator
One gauge of lethality is if a projectile will penetrate a 1 inch thick pine board. A field test that I witnessed with a 0.22 LR out of a rifle at 450 yards passed. With that in mind – – –
As I was reading this story[attached below] my 1st thought was that I would rather have a .22 v the .25 as it has better penetration.
Many years ago when I was working the emergency department of the hospital I had a person walk in complaining of a head ache. There was some blood on the right side of his head so the triage person moved him to the head of the line and put him in before others.
Based on the history that our questioning brought out we did an x-ray of his head. The x-ray revealed 6 [six] bullets lodged on the left side of his skull. The bullets had entered his scalp on the right side and followed along the skull under the scalp. and as Paul Harvey would say ‘the rest of the story’ was that he had attempted suicide with a 6 shot .25 semi auto and all he got out of it was a head ache.
On the other hand I have had to deal with several fatalities from single GSW [gun shot wound] with .22 caliber’s.
Subject: 25 Caliber Pistol Saves Women in Florida from 12′ Alligator
What is the smallest calibre pistol that you would trust to protect yourself ?
This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator. A Beretta .25 Jetfire testimonial:
Here is the story in her own words:
“While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside of The Villages with my 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.
The alligator 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 quick shot to my husband’s knee cap was all it took. ;
The ‘gator got him easily and I was able to just walk away at a brisk pace.
It’s one of the best pistols in my collection! Also, the amount I saved in lawyer’s fees was huge.”
*** Kids do NOT even consider this. The story is a JOKE that a friend sent me. ***
