Death To Coyotes

I'll give Gov. Perry a pass on having to wimp out by using a laser sight, only because it involved protecting his dog. Otherwise no self respecting Texan would admit to needing to use one.

Maybe it's in the water or something but native born Texans are known for their natural ability as marksmen. I think it comes from many of the first Texans originating from Tennessee, where marksmanship with a firearm was invented by the Vols.

Don't mess with our state or our dogs. Same rule applies in Tennessee.



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.

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.

When one came out of the brush toward his daughter’s Labrador retriever, Perry charged.

“Don’t attack my dog or you might get shot … if you’re a coyote,” he said Tuesday.

  1. Right on, right on. Or our women and children. Native Born Texans and Natural Born Citizens don't own laser sights, but some of my buddies up in the North country do, to each his own but, Don't mess with Texas because we do remember the Alamo!
