Out hiking north of Missoula Montana a 26 year old, 118 pound woman and her boyfriend were crossing a state road when they were surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging down the road at them.
Almost frozen in place, all the woman had for protection was a little Beretta Jetfire .25 caliber pistol in the pocket of her parka.
She said later however if it were not for that little gun she wouldn’t have survived.
She yanked it out of her jacket and fired one shot.
It hit her boyfriend in his kneecap and the bear caught him easily.
While the grizzly mauled the poor cripple, the lady was able to escape by walking away at a brisk pace.
She said she loves that pistol. She’ll find other boyfriends.
