The firearms manufacture that makes the Ruger handgun is capitalizing on the recent news reports that Texas Governor Rick Perry shot and killed a coyote with a Ruger .380 while on an early morning jog with his daughter’s Lab. Ruger has released a special Ruger .380 commemorating this occasion.
On the box it comes in it says “For Sale to Texans Only.” It says “Coyote Special” on one side of the barrel and “A True Texan” on the other side of the barrel. The top of the barrel has a Texas star and a Coyote howling to a full moon.
Ruger’s PR team has done a great job getting them some earned media with this!
Hat tip to resistnet.com for providing these details and photos!
The gun retails for about $340 and the laser site that Governor Perry uses goes for an additional $180. Austinites can pick up their Ruger .380 True Texan Coyote Special at McBrides Guns. Better hurry up though, only a limited amount were produced!
Does anyone want to lend me $340….
