Washington DC, May 25 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Strum, Ruger & Co. has manufactured ‘Coyote Special’ pistols after Texas Governor Rick Perry used the gun to kill a coyote, that was threatening his dog.
The gun, which is of the limited edition variety, has ‘Coyote Special’ emblazoned on one side. The pistol also has ‘A True Texan’ written on the other side. The gun also has an image of a coyote howling at the full moon with five-pointed star of Texas on the top of the gun. According to the manufacturer, the gun is available for sale for the Texans only. McBride’s Guns in Austin Texas said that sale of the ‘Coyote Special’ has been quite good.
The gun is being sold for $340, and a laser version of the gun would cost $180 more. Governor Perry is a frequent customer at McBride’s Guns and the shop still has ample stock of the gun for sale. The interest in the ‘Coyote Special’ has been attributed to the publication of the governor’s shooting of the coyote with his .380 pistol.
It ought to be mentioned that recently the Texas Governor Rick Perry had shot dead a coyote with his laser-sighted pistol. Rick Perry was jogging in the morning in an area near Austin, which is quite undeveloped and secluded.
