Gov. Rick Perry, who is now less popular in Texas than Barack Obama following his failed presidential run, is cheering himself up by going out and playing with a big fucking gun.

"Take it down/barrel, scope, upper, stock all fit in 5gal bucket. Back together and hit egg @ 100yds!" he tweets alongside the closeup shot, while noting that it's also "Made in Texas by Mark LaRue / LaRue Tactical Leander TX. As good as it gets!" in the photo caption with his gunmaker bro.

Rick Perry, he'll be just fine.
