    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 25 caliber. The woman tells her story. “While out hiking in Alberta Canada with my boyfriend 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!"

    She added further, “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.

    ”In conclusion she stated, “It's one of the best pistols in my collection.”

    Joe Bidet says that getting the effect of a .50 caliber with a .25 is as easy as firing twice.
