Ruger LCP “Coyote Special”

    The mainstream media got wind of these engraved Ruger LCP pistol that are selling in Texas and honor Gov. Rick Perry’s shooting of a coyote during an early morning jog.

    I have not seen any evidence to suggest that Ruger is manufacturing the pistol. I think some clever company is buying up Ruger LCPs and etching them.

    UPDATE: Travis says …

    I was at an Ace Hardware in Waco, TX this weekend. The gun counter employee showed me a Coyote Special. He said that Ruger made 1,000 of them. Also, he said that Ruger had shipped 500 each to two different distributors in Texas. He claimed to have received the pistol from one of those distributors.
