Gun-maker celebrates governor’s crack shot

“The Coyote Special.” It’s not a new Animal Planet documentary. It’s also not tonight’s chef’s choice at Hudson’s on the Bend.

Rather, it’s a handgun. But not just any handgun. It’s Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc.’s newest .380 — the same model of the semi-automatic pistol that Gov. Rick Perry said he used to kill a coyote that threatened his daughter’s Labrador during an early morning jog in February.

The Connecticut-based gun maker seemed to celebrate Perry’s slaying of the varmint by creating the distinctive weapon, which is emblazoned with the words “Coyote Special” on one side of the slide and “A True Texan” on the other side.

On the top of the pistol resides an etching of a coyote howling at the moon and a Texas Star.

Even the packaging displays a stamp that says it is for sale to Texans only. (Likely not enforceable.)-[source]
