Funny email

Something funny I read.

 

What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect yourself?

The best answer:

 

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 even family because if something happens there is someone to go get help. I remember one time while hiking with my girlfriend in northern Alberta 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 girlfriend’s knee cap and I was able to escape by just walking at a brisk pace. That's one of the best pistols in my collection...

    Funniest thing I read all day!. I seriously LMFAO. As far as Your original question I would say my .380 because that is the smallest carriable weapon I own. Son has a Ruger 10-22 tactical... but not very easy to throw in a backpack.

    I have only had mine out twice since I have owned it. It broke and took a bit to get it fixed. A pin inside the slide shifted and made it not able to fire. Couldn't get the slide off to see what the problem was, but yeah, they are fun to shoot. My wife has even asked me to show her how to use it. She is uncomfortable with guns but does okay with it.....even though there is never any ammo in it when she is using it.
