SAVED by my little Ruger .22

Ruger® LCP® Centerfire Pistol Models


Another good reason to have a concealed weapons permit.

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 walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in the Villages discussing a property settlement with my soon-to-be ex-husband, 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 Ruger .22 pistol with me, I would not be here today!

Just one shot to my estranged husband’s kneecap 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, and his life insurance was also a big bonus!

  1. OH Sheila, I love it!!
    And yes I do own a gun and have a carry permit. I am hoping that our state government will do as promised and do away with the need for a carry permit by going to open carry.

  2. Cute, but I don’ think that alligators have nests. They lay eggs and leave them, like turtles.
