Rick Perrys deadly showdown with a varmint last February. The gun has Coyote Special written on one side and A True Texan on the other. It sells for about $340. A laser site _ like the one Perry uses _ will cost about $180 more. The box says the gun is For Sale to Texans Only. (AP Photo/Tim McCreary)

    AUSTIN, TX -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry's deadly showdown with a varmint has prompted a gun manufacturer to sell a "Coyote Special" edition of his weapon of choice.

    Strum, Ruger & Co. Inc., makers of the .380 pistol Perry used to shoot a coyote that was threatening his dog, has come out with a limited edition version 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 site -- like the one Perry uses -- will cost about $180 more. The box says the gun is "For Sale to Texans Only."
