Supreme Court won't rule on carrying guns in public
USA Today
The Supreme Court appears hesitant to wade back into the national debate on guns. The court refused to decide whether the right to bear arms extends outside the home. The justices won't consider a challenge to a New Jersey law that restricts most residents from carrying guns in public. The case would have marked the most significant gun control case at the high court since its District of Columbia v. Heller decision in 2008 upheld the right to keep handguns at home for self-defense.

Exclusive: Regrets
Guns Magazine
Most gun owners have a story or two of regret, usually the result of ridding themselves of a beloved firearm. Call it "seller's remorse" or whatever, why anyone would sell a beloved firearm, is unknown. But, "beloved" at times gets redefined or at least reprioritized as we go through life. A variety of factors can contribute to this: Sometimes finances get tight and something's gotta go to help pay a bill. Sometimes we are wooed by other firearms and something's gotta go to pay for the cost of the new gun. Sometimes it is just sheer foolishness.

Largest hunter-taken grizzly enters Boone and Crockett records
Boone and Crockett
The largest grizzly bear ever taken by a hunter has been entered into Boone and Crockett records. The big bruin, taken in 2013 near Fairbanks, Alaska, scores 27-6/16. It missed the World's Record mark by 7/16 of an inch but landed a spot as the second-largest grizzly ever recorded. The reigning World's Record is a skull found in Alaska in 1976. Bears are scored based on skull length and width measurements.

Pistol stoppages and their causes
Officer.com
Pistol stoppages on the range are a common occurrence, and happen when the shooter causes the pistol to stop operating in the manner for which it was designed. The shooter causes the stoppage by failing to properly operate the firearm. Stoppages differ from malfunctions, which are described as the weapon or one of its components breaking. What's the likelihood of a pistol malfunctioning? A former USPSA national champion and gunsmith, Michael Plaxco, opines that a properly manufactured and maintained stock pistol should reliably function even with 1,000 rounds through it before cleaning. So what is the takeaway? Simply that stoppages are shooter induced and can be prevented.

Taurus PT 1911 AL-R
Guns Magazine
Near the top of the list of Unsung Handgun Heroes resides a Taurus PT 1911 AL-R, a great house gun or car gun with a long list of standard features and, before it was discontinued by Taurus, a decent price tag. At first glance, you might not like it, but it can be declared that after a few years of use, Taurus' take on the 1911 makes this classic fighting pistol more useful than ever. If you can find one, you should buy it.

Hillary Clinton: America's gun culture is 'way out of balance'
Deseret News
Hillary Rodham Clinton said the nation's gun culture has gotten "way out of balance" and the U.S. needs to rein in the notion that "anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime." The former Secretary of State and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the idea that anyone can have a gun is not in the "best interest of the vast majority of people." But she said that approach does not conflict with the rights of people to own firearms.
