    Found a new use for my laser sights

    Last night around dusk I was walking my dog. I live in a rural area and we have had some coyote issues this year, IE dog attacks. As we turned the corner the dog became alert and growled a little very softly. Then 3 coyotes came a few steps out of the woods about 40 yards away. We stopped and I hollered at them, one stepped forward which shocked me since they always ran away in the past. Just for reference I am 6'5" 275 and my dog is an 85 pound Bernese Mountain Dog so we are not what I would have thought they would classify as an easy target. I pulled out my little Bodyguard thinking about firing it into the ground to scare them off. Then I turned on the laser and moved it across the lead coyote until I was able to hit him in the eye with it. He yelped but stayed put so I did it again. This time I must have gotten him good because he let out a loud cry and rolled his head on the ground then got up and ran like heck into the woods. The other two seemed surprised but ran away with him. I turned off the laser and re-holstered and continued our walk. But now there might be one coyote with a bad eye in the area and I didn't have to waste a perfectly good Gold Dot.

    That was my thought- cat toy.

    SIDE NOTE: When playing with the laser and a cat be sure gun is unloaded. I hated that cat but my ex girlfriend who owned it really liked the stupid cat.

    Well, I have a bodyguard, and I would have never considered using the laser that way. Good job!

    Oh no...don't let PETA catch wind of this! They'll have you charged with cruelty, and force you to buy the coyote a "seeing eye dog".

    Actually, I think I saw him...is this him?

    Best use for the cat: Take it with you on the next walk. When approached by the yotes toss cat at them and run the other way! Free meal boys. Have at it.

    One coyote for one Gold Dot? Sounds like money well spent to me.

    Had he been closer or offered a broadside shot I might have taken it. Usually I don't look to shoot even coyotes but these seemed overly aggressive and not afraid of humans. Like I said 40ish yards at dusk with a Bodyguard .380 would have been a tough shot. I have not practiced at that range with this gun as I don't expect to engage a self defense target that far away so I have no idea the POI vs POA. Guess I need to try it next time I am at the 50 yard range.

    Stubborn beat me to it. I was just getting ready to call PETA...

    OP you're not a typical right-wing extremist are you? How can I tell? DHS says you would've unloaded that high capacity pistol clip on those coyotes then reloaded with your heat-seekers, switched to full-auto and executed the immigrants they were leading to a better life.

    It seems you found a less than lethal solution, we'll just call you Mother Theresa Doubledown.
