    Governor's showdown spurs 'Coyote Special' pistol

    AUSTIN, Texas -- Gov. Rick Perry's showdown on the jogging trail has spurred a gun maker to sell a "Coyote Special" edition of the weapon he used to bring down a varmint.

    Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc., which makes the .380-caliber pistol Perry used to shoot a coyote he said was threatening his dog, has come out with a limited-edition version.

    It is emblazoned with "Coyote Special" and "A True Texan" on the sides. On top is a picture of a coyote howling at the moon and five-pointed star of Texas.

    The gun sells for about $340. A laser sight -- like the one Perry uses -- will cost about $180 more. The box says the gun is "For Sale to Texans Only."

    Joe McBride, owner of McBride's Guns in Austin where Perry is a frequent shopper, said sales have been brisk.

    Saw this on the local morning news. According to the newscasters, the Coyote Special costs about $30 more than the same model without the name and star.

    Yeah I know. I was disappointed. I was hoping it would have like the Texas Lonestar on the grips and maybe more of a Texas take on it. But all they did was screenprint (I'm sure it's something better than screenprint) some stuff on it.

    And for that the gun is $30 more...

    I do like the star on top of the slide. The rest of it can go.

    It's apparently not from Ruger. Some distributor/dealer is doing the engraving.
