“My favorite gun is the LaRue OBR. The machining is so precise and the weapon will shoot 1-inch MOA (or less) time after time. It is a work of art!”
Rick Perry loves all kinds of guns. The Texas governor, who famously shot dead a coyote with his .380 Ruger pistol for threatening his dog while on a morning run in 2010, agreed to be the subject of this new feature series that explores the gun collections of people in the spotlight.
The fifth-generation Texan has been shooting since he was kid. Mr. Perry told me that, “The first gun I ever had was given to me by my grandfather when I was young — a Remington single shot .22LR. I still have it.”
The governor, who ran for president this year, emailed me that some of his favorite firearms are his LaRue OBR 5.56 rifle, a Colt 1911 .45 caliber pistol and a 12-gauge Browning Maxus shotgun.
The Lone Star state chief executive is most passionate about his rifle.
