Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With 25 Cal Pistol....Who said a .25 cal was useless?

This is a story of self control and marksmanship with a little 25 cal. pistol by
a woman in confrontation with a fierce predator!

The Beretta Jetfire:

While out hiking in Alberta, Canada, with my husband we were surprised
by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of nowhere.
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 husband'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 truly is one of the best pistols in my collection!
