And, be sure you’re using non-lead bullets if you’re defending yourself from rabid coyotes in Kalifornia (according to the above referenced regulations).<br /> <br /> Wouldn’t want to harm the environment!

There are some open spaces near where I live in Seattle. There is a neighborhood blog where there are frequent coyote sighting posts. One night a couple of months ago, I saw two small ones in my yard. A few months ago, I saw a good sized one walking down the street.<br /> Jim

"99.99% of healthy coyotes want nothing to do with you and a shout will scatter them.<br /> <br /> In the rare event of a sick, or rabid coyote who comes at you, I doubt there would be time for you to go to the cart or bag and retrieve a weapon.<br /> <br /> IMO the best choice would be the club in your hand."<br /> <br /> Where's the Like button around here?

No matter what you choose, get to a range and take some gun safety and shooting lessons.

"I have an Alien Gear IWB that makes it a pretty easy carry"<br /> <br /> I just ordered an Aliengear tuck 3.0 IWB holster for my G19.

Personally I'd carry my Walther PP in 9mm with jacketed hollow points. Fits nicely in my pocket. It has enough firepower for vermin or a big cat if needed. It's my choice for hiking around SoCal.<br /> <br /> BTW, Coyotes that live around humans and population centers get pretty daring over time. I see them all the time in the Ortega Mtns. and on the local plateaus. There is a pretty good sized pack that live in open land across the street. They make quite a racket some nights. Good supply of rabbits and ground squirrels over there.

"No matter what you choose, get to a range and take some gun safety and shooting lessons..."<br /> <br /> Always good advice, Tjack!<br /> <br /> In my own case, I grew up with a 50 ft .22 rifle range in my basement. Many thousands of rounds fired there over the years growing up. A definite factor in my ability to qualify as Expert Marksman all 23 years of my time in the USAF.<br /> <br /> In short, I can hit what I aim at.<br /> <br /> Many thanks for all the great suggestions above.<br /> <br /> BTW, that coyote who drew near at the golf course in Truckee, CA was fully grown, had a beautiful bushy tail, and looked like he'd been eating very well indeed. Did not exhibit normal traits associated with rabies.<br /> <br /> I grabbed the sand wedge because there was no time to do anything but grab ANY club. Given more time I would have gone for my pitching wedge because I believe that's what worked so well for Tiger Woods' ex wife.<br /> <br /> 6

You could go Indiana Jones on them with a 10 foot whip. It's amazing the effect these have on critters, just the sound alone. A pack of semi ferral dogs had been killing chickens and causing other damage in my neighborhood. I heard some noise on the back deck grabbed a whip I had just finished and went out back. There were six or so in the pack, one crack of the whip and they were freaking out, making noises like they got hit by a car frantic in trying to get away, one ran head on into a tree. I kept after them cracking it the whole time. They were trying to climb the cyclone fence in an effort to escape.<br /> <br /> I don't know about bears but they affect large cats that way too, the cats don't freak out as bad but they will turn away. Cats are more cautious and will try to avoid injury. Hitting an aggressive venomous snake is easier with the whip than a pistol. I carry an 8 foot whip on the bicycle occasionally, when I'm off road.<br /> <br /> At home (farm) I'm usually not armed, unless it's late at night or I'm down in the back. I'll carry a .45 revolver, though the .22 mag would deal with most of the problems critters. I've seen bears in the area and down in the Ocala NF I see large cat tracks, I've heard therm too but haven't seen one recently.<br /> <br />
