For walking the dogs and being worried about Coyotes a small caliber guns would be fine, if your going to carry for other reasons, yea I'd have a 9mm or bigger. I'm thinking you want something relatively inexpensive and light for walking or jogging with your dogs not something for a fire fight with some AQ terrorists. lol! lol!

I had several of them do some weird shit on my farm years ago, the seemed to be trying to lure me and dog into the hedges for an ambush. But I typical wondered around the farm with an old 12 ga. I never did get a shot off at one, other than that time the always kept their distance and moved fast.

my dogs are up-date with their shots so we are good there. I still took all three of them to the vet anyway.

The puppy had nearly 80 puntcure holes all over his body, (head, muzzle, neck, left front leg and paw, arm pit area of right front leg, back and rear end Vet counted and cleaned them all, fixed him up pretty well.)
Yuma is a fighter! He must of though it was a game, this morning he was up to his old palying and fighting with Charlie and Barkley, like nothing even ever happened.

I have a series of 4 shots over 14 weeks. Not in the tummy, not 25 like you hear of. In the upper arm, shoulder area.

DNR (Dep of natural resources) GAME and Fish really.

DNR said the same thing... The three that hit Yuma, were most likely decoys for my two larger dogs, get my two to chase the three of them and then the pack would ambush my two..... Looks like that plan back-fired!

Check out the Kel Tec PMR30.
I have been looking at them recently.
It's a 22mag with a 30 round magazine.
Plenty of rounds and it should have enough energy to take out coyotes at close range.

my favorite for coyotes is my Marlin .22 semi auto with a 4X scope and 7 shot clips (3) just count 7,drop the clip and put a new clip in and continute , I've taken them standing at 250 yds and on the run starting at 20 yds and take them before 100 yrds , the light weight of a .22 rifle and little or no lift on the squeeze of the trigger of a .22 LR hollow point round and the hitting power of a .22 LR hollow point is amaizing at 250 yards it still come out the other side the size of a dollar

They retail for $419 and have been selling for upwards of $1K recently, if you can find one Mad
On the trapline we use 22 shorts to dispatch coyotes! One shot behind the ear and it's dead dog down.

I've seen a few farmers hang a killt one on a fence post as a warning to the rest of the pack. Dont know if it works but it looks cool.

Same here...

That sucks to hear Adam... I hope you and your pup are ok...

I would guess that they were more than likely rabid, as coyotes are usually pretty fearful of man. If I was to pack anything, I'd not use a 9mm for anything but a doorstop or a bookend. If you're an auto kinda guy, I'd pack no less than a .40 S&W but lean toward the .45. And for these particular circumstances, I'd shoot a hardball round for the penetration. I'm sure the 9mm crowd will flame away because I think they're worthless. Sure they'll kill ya dead as well as anything, but I'd rather shoot something once with the bigger round than 2-3 times with a 9mm myself. It's a proven statistic. I'm a wheel gun guy myself, and would recommend a Taurus .357 Magnum 7 shot revolver, with 158gr Hornandy XTP ammo. It also has a pretty slim frame for easy carry... Makes for a very unhappy day for anything on the recieving end... Very Happy

Boo Boo

Im with Doug as well, and I'm not a Glock fan, so I wouldn't carry one of those. You might check out the S&W SD40. I am a diehard 1911 fan, but this has quickly became my goto carry piece. http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product4_750001_750051_811053_-1_757751_757751_757751_ProductDisplayErrorView_Y
Can usually find them for under $330
