Mix Governor Rick Perry, a Ted Nugent song, a military style rifle and an egg exploding during target practice together and you get the most talked about introduction video at this week’s National Rifle Association’s meeting in Houston.
The short video played just before Perry took the stage to a welcome applause from the crowd.
The video shows Perry taking aim at an egg from about 100 yards out with a LaRue Tactical rifle - a company that recently opened up shop in Texas.
The video then shows Perry hitting metal targets like a marksman.
The video got quite a reaction online, and not all of it was good.
The responses on Twitter ranged from folks saying Perry’s video did nothing but “promote and excite the already gun-thirsty and violent society” to others saying “I love Rick Perry! He should be President...great guy.”
