Democrats from pro-gun states tell ex-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to stay away
The Washington Times
Everybody loves Gabby Giffords — just not necessarily on the campaign trail. When the gun control advocacy group led by the former congresswoman from Arizona threw its support behind several endangered Senate Democrats in Western and Southern states, the candidates carefully moved to distance themselves from the affable Ms. Giffords and boasted about their strident defense of Second Amendment rights.

Gun control advocates push to take firearms from those accused of threatening violence
Fox News
Domestic abusers are not allowed to have guns. But gun control advocates want to expand that federal law to include those who merely have been accused of threatening violence — by prohibiting those under a temporary restraining order from having firearms. Second Amendment supporters say these bills are unconstitutional because they violate the right to due process. But they may be gaining traction.

Revolver selection: Understanding your needs
Guns Digest
Picking a revolver to carry in the woods isn't necessarily an easy decision or one that should be taken lightly. Your sidearm should become an extension of yourself if you are carrying for protection — from two and four-legged predators. If your revolver is to be used as a primary hunting tool, you have a bit more leeway in your decision between single and double action.

Google Glass becomes a gunsight
Gadget Review
VideoBrief Tactical sight company Trackingpoint has decided to make Google Glass an accessory to their networked sights, allowing you to, in theory, fire around corners and otherwise put a bullet where normally you'd need an elaborate tool to do so.

Lessons learned in turkey hunting
By John McAdams
As promised in my previous article about my first turkey hunt, I'm discussing some of the lessons I learned while turkey hunting. I had a great time, and I got a nice turkey to show for it. However, the hunt was not perfect and there are always things that I can improve for the next trip. It always pays to sit down after each hunt and determine what you did well, and what you can do better for the future. With any luck, I'll get another chance to put some of these turkey hunting lessons learned to use next year.

Concealed carry tactics: Forget fast, get a good ready
Gun Digest
Back in the day, we referred to pulling the gun from a holster as "the draw," and speed of the draw was a much sought-after skill. If a cop in training couldn't get the gun out of a retention duty rig and engage a target (starting with a good grip on the gun) in less than one and a half seconds, they were not ready to go on the street. If you're not a police officer, you don't have that obligation, and it's better to concentrate on a "good ready" than a quick presentation. Here's why.

Cartridge crimp styles and uses
Gun Digest
Crimping, that final stage of handgun cartridge assembly. Whether done as a separate operation, or as a part of the bullet seating process, one simple fact remains — it must be done. There are two distinct types of cartridge crimps: Roll crimping and taper crimping. In the handgun world, it is a pretty clear distinction. Roll crimping is best used on the revolver cartridges, and taper crimping is the way to go for semi-automatic pistol cartridges. Here's why.
