NRA clarifies sharp 'open carry' criticism
WFAA-TV
When "open carry" groups take their message to parking lots and sidewalks, they say they're fighting for gun rights. What they didn't expect is to have to defend themselves from "friendly fire." "You grow up to revere the NRA, almost like it’s a grandfather," said Tov Henderson of Open Carry Texas. "They’re the vanguards of the the Second Amendment."

Smith & Wesson's handgun sales jumped by nearly a third at the end of last year, and Colt Manufacturing sold twelve times as many handguns early this year as it did in 2013. And now Colt is moving to boost its handgun production by 50 percent.

The long and the short of it
Guns Magazine
Back in the ’60’s, when Massad Ayoob was a kid-shooting bull’s-eye, he noticed most of the young and prime-of-life shooters used long-barreled pistols. The S&W Model 41 with 7-inch tube, the High Standard Supermatic series with fluted 7.25-inch barrel, and the 6-7/8-inch Ruger Mark I. The older guys, however, were much likelier to “go short” with a 5.5-inch heavy barrel on their Smith, H-S or Ruger. When Ayoob asked why, in those days before optical sights on .22 target pistols, he always got the same answer: “When my eyes got older, I could see the front sight better with a shorter sight radius.”

Gun rights advocates weigh in on 2nd amendment
KVII-TV
Gun advocacy and support in the Panhandle has always been prevalent. To add to that advocacy, Amarillo resident Shannon Urton has created a coalition called Second Amendment Sundays to give a platform to businesses who deal with any items involving the Second Amendment. “This is what we make our living off of, helping people with their firearms. The second amendment, I believe is very important to people around here and that’s why I think it’s a good thing to be a part of,” said Baker.
