Target's statement to open carry
Shall Not Be Questioned
Target recently released a statement regarding its gun policy in its stores across the country: "As you've likely seen in the media, there has been a debate about whether guests in communities that permit "open carry" should be allowed to bring firearms into Target stores. Our approach has always been to follow local laws, and of course, we will continue to do so. But starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target — even in communities where it is permitted by law."

Is Operation Choke Point behind Google's 'increased' restrictions on firearms and accessories?
VSSA
Breitbart recently reported that Google was about to put forward increased restrictions on firearms, ammunition and firearm accessory ads. Tom Gresham also mentioned it on his Gun Talk Radio program. But as Sebastian and Bob Owens noted, these "increased" restrictions are not really much different than what they are already doing. On Sunday night's broadcast of Armed American Radio, Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation wondered if Google's announcement of a policy change that isn't really a policy change is driven by Operation Choke Point.

New pro-gun/pro-hunting state laws go into effect
The Daily Caller
On July 1, several pro-gun/pro-hunting laws took effect in Virginia. Among them, Senate Bill 154, which repealed the outdated ban on Sunday hunting on private lands with written permission from the owner while still prohibiting hunting within 200 yards of a house of worship, the hunting of deer with dogs and the hunting of bear. House Bill 127 allows persons to hunt big game with muzzleloading pistols of a caliber of .45 or greater where and in those seasons when the use of muzzleloading rifles is permitted.

Guide to the interstate transportation of firearms
Ammo Land
Federal law does not restrict individuals from transporting legally acquired firearms across state lines for lawful purposes, with a few explicit exceptions. Therefore, no federal permit is required (or available) for the interstate transportation of firearms. Many states and localities have laws governing the transportation of firearms. Travelers must be aware of these laws and comply with legal requirements in each jurisdiction.

Meet the gun-slingin gals at Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado
Guns.com
They're young, they're cute, they pack heat and serve a great burger to boot. Some customers at Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, think the girls' guns are just part of a costume. But they're not props. They're real, and the gals know how to use them. Restaurant owner Lauren Boebert, who opened Shooters just over a year ago with her husband, Jayson, said they allow — even encourage — their employees and customers alike to freely exercise their Second Amendment rights.

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.

The sound of 1 hand shooting
Shooting Illustrated
We call conventional wisdom just that because it bears merit. For example, in modern pistolcraft, the handgun is fired from a two-hand-hold that creates a significantly more stable platform than one-handed shooting. This is gospel. This is what is taught in the best of the best shooting schools in both the private and public sectors. But there is one flaw to this method.
