While out hiking in Alberta Canada with my friend 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 friend's knee cap was all it took! I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. It's one of the best pistols in my collection!
