NAGR unleashes dishonest attack on Bill Janis
VSSA
Voters in the 12th Senate District have received a dishonest campaign mailer from the National Association for Gun Rights that can only be described as trash. The mailer claims that VSSA- and NRA-endorsed candidate Bill Janis refuses to oppose several gun control measures.

Police encounters while carrying
Shall Not Be Questioned
A lot of instructors, particularly those with a law enforcement background, will often tell you to extend officers the courtesy of telling them you're armed if you ever get pulled over in a traffic stop. The advice typically includes offering your concealed carry license up along with your driver's license. I think this is bad advice, because I read too many articles that sound like this one to believe it's a good idea.

A liberal woman admits she has a gun and it's awesome
Townhall.com
When I get asked about how to change the perspective of an anti-gunner, particularly on the left, I always tell people to extend an invitation to the shooting range. Why? If the invitation is accepted, the person you take will more than likely have a fantastic time and will want to go again. This can eventually lead to their first gun purchase and the rest become history. But most importantly, taking them to the range allows them to find out that the media has been lying to them about guns for years.

How your NRA goes to court
America's 1st Freedom
Electoral politics and legislation obviously play key roles in defending our firearm freedoms, and no organization is more effective in this realm than your National Rifle Association. Yet another vital facet of advancing and protecting the Second Amendment is pro-gun litigation. Here, too, the NRA leads the way.

How anti-gun media convince themselves gun ownership is declining
Bearing Arms
One of the more interesting aspects of covering firearms-related news is the volume of data that is out there showing consistent record growth. Some of that is hard, quantifiable data. The shooting sports industry is seeing not just record sales growth, but growth with incredible staying power. But supporters of gun control are attempting to claim that while sales are up, gun ownership is actually down.

6 ways to carry a gun concealed and the holsters you need
Ammoland
While I do believe belt carry is probably the best all-around option, it's simply not feasible for all people all of the time. Sometimes you just have to accept other carry options due to your circumstances. You might have to adopt a carry method that is a little slower or that offers more difficult access to your gun. With that said, let's look at a number of carry styles that may work for you, based on your particular situation.

Women helping to shift public opinion from gun control to owner's rights
Las Vegas Review-Journal
The number of women buying guns is on the rise, with sales to women jumping 20 percent between 2011 and 2012, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry trade group. The information comes on the heels of a December Pew Research Center poll showing that, for the first time in 20 years, there is more support among Americans for gun rights than gun control.

Shooting stance: The 5 essential tips to torso and leg positioning
Ammoland
It is nearly impossible to shoot a sequence of shots quickly and accurately if your torso is constantly moving. It's hard enough to do when you're perfectly still. Reducing movement and sway during recoil will allow for quicker recovery of the gun back into alignment. This can be done by improving your stance, from your shoulders to the ground.

The AR for home defense: 1 experts opinion
American Rifleman
One of today's best-known and most respected trainers in the art of gun fighting, retired Sgt./Maj. Kyle E. Lamb, spent more than 21 years with the U.S. Army. He currently operates Viking Tactics as a military, law enforcement and civilian trainer teaching courses in tactical entry and the use of the carbine, among others. Lamb is an unassuming individual, but when it comes to discussions about the effectiveness of the general-purpose rifle — in today's guise, the AR carbine — for use in a home-defense scenario, he is anything but.

Increasing your odds of success during deer season
By John McAdams
In the United States, the majority of big-game hunters use centerfire rifles during the general deer-hunting season. While there are many advantages to hunting with a centerfire rifle, the general deer hunting seasons are often the shortest and most crowded. Luckily, there is a way around these hurdles: hunting during the archery or muzzleloader seasons. While every state is different, hunting with a bow or a muzzleloader will increase (sometimes significantly) the length of your deer hunting season.

Shooters: Are you milking the trigger?
OutdoorHub
The term "milking the trigger" simply means that your grip fingers are also contracting as your trigger finger contracts to press the trigger. This sounds simple, but it’s really part of a much broader concept.
