Rick Perry talks guns with Washington Times

Rick Perry talks guns with Washington Times, calls his favorite rifle a ‘work of art’

Gov. Rick Perry's rifle of choice is a LaRue OBR 5.56.(LaRue Tactical)

Rick Perry’s favorite rifle is a LaRue OBR 5.56, but he’s also fond of his Colt .45 and 12-gauge shotgun.

The governor agreed to talk firearms, well at least exchange emails, with the Washington Times for a feature it’s doing on newsmakers and their gun collections.

He call his LaRue rifle a “work of art” and said one of his favorite hobbies is going to LaRue tactical and using their gun range for target practice.

He said target shooting was a way for him to unwind and relax. Indeed, in South Carolina, while campaigning for president, the governor peeled off from the schedule for a stolen half-hour at a shooting range.

In the article, he referred to it as “my form of golf.”

“I’m still trying to get a hole in one – five rounds in the same hole – but I haven’t quite got there yet,” Perry said.

What a great governor we have here. He doesn't back down from what he believes in.
