    OK, so a few months ago my wife “needed” to supplement our cat population, and got a couple kittens. And they HAD to stay in the house until they were big enough to take care of themselves (fair enough). Well, it’s been a few months and after one has decided that digging in the trash is better than eating the cat food we put out and the other one can’t quite pinch it off before he comes out of the cat box, she was convinced that it’s time for them to be full time outside kitties. This weekend, as we were putting them out, she reminded me just how sad she would be if the coyotes happened to invite one of them out to play. And what do you know; one has been missing since Sunday. So this morning as I’m pulling into work she calls to tell me that as she opens the patio door the remaining cat is sitting on the porch anxiously looking down the side of the house. She follows the cats glance to see a nice healthy coyote not 30 feet away. So she runs inside and grabs the little pump .22 that I gave her shortly after we met. But by the time she gets back outside Mr. coyote is about 100 yards away, so she takes careful aim, and pulls the trigger. But she didn’t call because she was mad, she called because tell me that I needed to buy her something better (and I quote) “like an AR-15 or something”. Ain’t life grand?

    Alright kiddies, you see how I did that? It looks easy, but really, it’s not.

    Well played Troy, very well played.
    Had a similar experience here as well.
    Wife saw a coyote next to the barn and came home with a Remington 870 Mariner. She said she figured she could blast coyotes AND intruders with style and ease. Now she wants me to build her a black rifle and paint it pink using the Duracoat with the diamond plate pattern. :rolleyes:
    I just dont know if that is right....I just dont know!

    Very nice! She's got to be able to keep those kitties safe now. She might need a nice lil red dot to go with it.

    So, did she hit the one she saw?

    You think it's too early to tell her about coyotes being nocturnal, thereby requiring the aid of a Gen3 Night Vision scope with built-in laser rangefinder to truly mitigate the threat? Or would that be pushing it...:D

    I second the Gen 3 Night vision. Pitch it and offer nights sitting on the porch sighting the devil's minions. Cat killers.

    One hell of a thought, RL. That should be easily parlayed despite the price tag. :D

    No she didn't, by the time she got back outside and had a clear line of fire, he was about 100 yards away.

    The trash eater made it. I think it was her that pushed the turd dragger off the porch.

    Maybe I should let her answer this, because y'all are going to think I'm full of it. But a night vision scope was the first thing she brought up after the AR.
