Where would you carry a Ruger .380 with laser sights while jogging? (Read 1040 times)

    This apparently a quote from Rick Perry.

     

    "Texans, on the other hand, elect folks like me. You know the type, the kind of guy who goes jogging in the morning, packing a Ruger .380 with laser sights and loaded with hollow-point bullets, and shoots a coyote that is threatening his daughter's dog."

     

    Gotta read.

     

    Even if this is not true, the answer to this question is perplexing.

        I haven't clicked that link so I dunno if it discusses the famous coyote shooting or not.

         

        He shot a coyote on some run because it was stalking his dog.  The spin on the article I read at the time was more about him leaving the carcass (instead of cleaning it up) than anything about Runner Packing Heat.  But hey, I wouldn't want my dog to have a run-in with a creature.

         

        But that's not what I'm writing about.

         

        What I'm writing about was what Mr Perry said at the time.  Something about being worried about coyotes because they are "wily".

         

        I swear.

         

          Maybe someone will find a way to modify a fuel belt so that you can carry your favorite pistol - not some dinky derringer thing.

            Meh.

             

            A real man would chase down the coyote, put the bitch down with his own bare hands, and leave nothing for the buzzards.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                  When I had a dozen or more coyotes howling very close outside my tent and a couple walking circles right outside it, I must say I was wishing that I was more like Rick Perry.

                    Not true, you can shoot coyotes if they threaten or cause damage to property.  You just can't shoot them for "being wily."

                      You wouldn't think the Texas Governor would be packing a little girly-gun like a .380. 

                      I figure I'll need at least a 9mm at the Monkey.

                              I ran a middle-of-the-night race outside of Phoenix Saturday.  There were coyotes.  At first, when they all started howling, it sounded like spectators off in the distance.  Later on, when I was running by myself and very loopy, it just sounded a little creepy.  One sounded quite close about 1a, but I suspect it wasn't really.  I still said outloud, though quietly to myself, "I'm Rick Perry. Stay away or I shoot your ass."

                               

                              It worked.

                                If they do, he'd better switch to full metal jackets and pick a less wimpy round.
