I came across a gator today while fishing and decided I need a little more protection with me than the knife I carry. I own a Beretta .22 cal, so I'm thinking of getting a holster to start carrying it. But now I'm wondering if I should instead look at upgrading to a Beretta 9mm (I just like the feel of that brand). I don't plan to use the gun for recreational use; just something to carry when I'm in the wilderness. I'd love to hear your opinions.
