In an official campaign video released Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry explained that shooting sniper rifles was his version of golf.

“This is my golf,” the candidate said, praising the owners of a gun shop that “make the finest sniper rifles in the world.”

“I’m still trying to get a hole in one,” Perry’s voice is heard saying over video of him firing one of the rifles.

“For me it’s really relaxing and getting to come hang out with what I consider to be patriots, the men and women that work here.”

Watch this video from Rick Perry 2012, broadcast Sept. 28, 2011.
