7 reasons why pocket pistols may not be for you
American Rifleman
Over the last few years, pocket-sized pistols have dominated the concealed-carry handgun market. More makes and models of these ultra-compact, lightweight defensive firearms are available than ever before. These diminutive guns are convenient for daily carry and useful when larger defensive options cannot be employed. However, pocket pistols have certain limitations that new or inexperienced handgunners need to be aware of before they commit to buying one.

Detroit Police Chief thanks armed citizens for decline in crime
Guns.com
VideoBrief Although Detroit has notoriously been known for its high crime in the past, the city is now on a bit of an upswing. According to Detroit Police Chief James Craig, crime has fallen a significant amount so far this year, and Craig attributed the drop, in part, to armed citizens fighting to take their city back against criminals. "Criminals are getting the message that good Detroiters are armed and will use that weapon," Craig told The Detroit News.

Beretta to move out of Maryland due to gun-control laws
The Associated Press via Fox News
Beretta U.S.A. announced that company concerns over a strict gun-control law enacted in Maryland last year have made it necessary to move its weapons making out of the state to Tennessee. Beretta general manager Jeff Cooper said that a sweeping gun-control measure that was passed last year initially contained provisions that would have prohibited the Italian gun maker from being able to produce, store or even import into Maryland the products that the company sells around the world. While the legislation was changed to remove some of those provisions, Cooper said the possibility that such restrictions could be reinstated left the company worried about maintaining a firearm-making factory in Maryland.

If you're thinking about bringing your guns into DC, don't
Townhall.com
There are places where you just don’t go with your firearms. Any gun owner knows them; any person who staunchly supports Second Amendment rights knows them; any person who knows gun laws knows them. But, everyone should know that it's never a good idea to bring a gun into the District of Columbia.

Gun Digest
Here's a way you may be able to avoid having to use your handgun in self-defense, thanks to a simple trick that costs less than $30. If you carry a legally concealed handgun for protection an old trick might become a last-chance tactical option: the decoy wallet. It's an option for the concealed carry permit holder smart enough to know that throwing thirty bucks worth of fake wallet at a street thug may be a lot cheaper than throwing a hundred grand at a good defense lawyer.
