Texas Governor Rick Perry Shoots Coyote on Jog Near Austin


by the Left Coast Rebel

Could Governor Rick Perry take this skill with him to Washington? With words and ideas, of course - instead of bullets. Look out, Wily Coyote:

AUSTIN, Texas -- Pistol-packing Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a message for wily coyotes out there: Don't mess with my dog.

Perry told The Associated Press on Tuesday he needed just one shot from the laser-sighted pistol he sometimes carries while jogging to take down a coyote that menaced his puppy during a February run near Austin.

The first thing I thought after reading this was, 'I wonder what caliber the pistol was.' WaPo fills us in:
Perry said he will carry his .380 Ruger - loaded with hollow-point bullets - when jogging on trails because he is afraid of snakes. He'd also seen coyotes in the undeveloped area.
He's a good shot, that's a very small pistol:



  1. NICE, I think I need one of these...

  2. Those little mouseguns are surprisingly accurate...and SO easy to conceal. :-)

  3. That's what I always carry! Only mine is a Keltec. The Keltec was a little cheaper. I even carry mine to church, the grocery store, everywhere. There are no target rich environments when I'm around. :) And, yeah, I'm a good shot too.

  4. I could make a comment on how better use his skills could be made in Washington, but I don't want DHS knocking (or is that breaking down?) my door and listing me an enemy combatant since I'm not a Muslim. This demonstrate the need for the 2nd admendment. I wonder if the left will use it to demean the admendment as it's repealment would mean one less conservative in the world and one better fed wolf? I wonder what hate mail he's going to get from PETA over this (yea, he saved the dog, but a human lived while a coyote died). The fact he can shoot that little thing so accurately is quite impressive. I have a hard enough time at the range with a 9mm semi.
