If one gets close enough to me to make out the "dilated pupils" I'm going to put it out of it's misery.

I only mentioned the rabies possibility because, at least in my experience, healthy coyotes are VERY wary of adult humans and tend to avoid contact with them.

You may be tempted to purchase a Taurus brand revolver based upon price.


Don't.


Buy a used Smith or Ruger instead.

Are you thinking a full size revolver or a compact one? That's probably your first decision. I think it's going to be hard to carry a full size revolver concealed. Now if you have the Caddy Shack Golf Bag, then you should have plenty of space for a full size piece :)

Sand wedge? You need at LEAST a 4-iron for a coyote, or you'll come up short!




And any S&W or Ruger will do. I have a S&W 2.5" in stainless, and .357 is my favorite caliber.

Pretty weird to see one during the day. Did it look mangey (bad coat, red skin)?

If I were going to stick with .357 I’d be looking for a fixed sight 3” like a SP101 or a S&W 65.

Edit - I just noticed a Talo special 3” GP100 with Novak fixed sights on the Ruger website - another option.

Anything you would carry for protection against 2 legged critters should work on coyotes.

Out of production but you get the idea.

"I can't imagine shooting a coyote anywhere in California would end well for you. "


+1

There's a certain contingent that would rather see you mauled to death that see an "innocent and beautiful" wild animal shot.

Good luck with what you decide.

FWIW, I have a cheapo Rossi 5 shooter that has never failed, but I don't know if I'd bet my life on it. It's just a fun range gun.

Then again, it would be hard to beat a Glock 33 which pretty much duplicates a 125 grain .357 Mag in a semiauto envelope. Of course, I’m biased. ;-)

"I can't imagine shooting a coyote anywhere in California would end well for you."

Caliber and brand notwithstanding, discharging a firearm on a golf course just "might" be counter to the rules thereof. Not to mention the fact that there would be a non-zero likelihood of wounding or killing a fellow golfer. Very bad idea...

Well documented that I’m not a gun owner, but I’ve watched a lot of television programming about coyotes, and apparently an Acme brand safe or anvil is the preferred method.

Might be too heavy to carry while walking a dog or golfing, so I recommend pulling it behind you in a little red wagon.

I’d probably go with a .38.

The Ruger LCP (.380) is easy to conceal and carry and will more than enough to dispatch a coyote. If you can hit it, that is. Hydra-Shoks are a good round as are most of the premium LE and SD rounds.

After doing some "googling" it appears the only way to carry any firearm in Ca without a CCW is to purchase a hunting license and have the weapon in plain view.

Not sure the golf course would like this.

Good news is coyote hunting is year round.

Maybe a small carbine in a case that can be carried in the golf bag would serve you.

Looks like it is one year in jail for a first offense "carrying concealed" so a big decision for sure.

Good luck

My trail piece is a Ruger SP101 five-shot 38/357. I load it with .38 SPL +P hollowpoints.

Why?

1. It's lightweight and easy to carry.

2. The +P round approaches the ballistics and hit power of the .357 mag round, but it doesn't have the huge blast and recoil of the .357. In low-light conditions, touching off a full-house .357 will cause you temporary flash blindness.
