What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect
The Beretta Jetfire:
My personal favorite defense gun has always been a Beretta Jetfire in
22 short. I have carried it for many years including while hiking. I
never leave without it in my pocket.
Of course the first rule when hiking in the wilderness is to use the
Buddy System". This means you NEVER hike alone, you bring a
friend, companion, or family member because if something happens
there is someone to go to get help.
I remember one time while hiking with my girlfriend in northern Alberta
and out of nowhere came this huge brown bear charging us and was
she mad. We must have been near one of her cubs. Anyway, if I had
not had my little Jetfire I would not be here today.
Just one shot to my girlsand' s knee cap was all it took. " " " " the bear
got her and I was able to escape nojust walking at a brisk pace.
It' s one of the best pistols in my collection...
