Which is pretty much the only real option, at that moment. Old stand-bys like "Fore!" or "Hand me the putter" just don't cut it when a gator's eyeing you. Yikes.
In gator country, I'm with some of you: Talking is completely overrated. Just hand me the "big gun," thank'ee very much ... something on the order of ~52in and 600cc of holy-smokes. I'd be worried the 9mm would just tick him off.
