    Actually, there is a better shot than trying to brain the gator...the smile shot. Shoot into the corner of the mouth. That will allow the bullet to hit the spine, which is a MUCH larger target than the brain.

    Close up like this? I was probably 2 feet away from this 8 footer while on Turner River Road in Miami. Took the wife and dog out for some mild offroading (first weekend I was carrying my Glock 23). So I got out, whipped out the camera and had the Glock handy just in case. This guy is tame. The locals call him "One eye."

    2 feet, Have you seen how fast a gator can cover that distance when next to the shore. Food for thought.
