I'm not ashamed of taking my 4-year-old dove hunting
The Indianapolis Star
Far too many of us give no thought to the fact that the eggs, meat and dairy products we eat come from animals that might well have never felt the sun on their backs, or were slaughtered by migrant workers in some distant meat-packing plant's assembly line. Long before we began walling ourselves off in cages of cars and concrete and cubicles, do you really think your primitive hunter-gatherer or agrarian ancestors shielded their young children from the deathly processes behind animal protein?

Between the berms: Paper vs. pixels
The Shooting Wire
Back in February, Paul Erhardt, editor for the Outdoor Wire Digital Network, wrote about the need in the shooting sports to move towards realtime scoring where shooters can actually see how they compare against their fellow competitors at any point during the match. He recently got to witness first-hand the difference between a club scoring on paper and one scoring electronically — and the differences are rather stark.

The anti-gun billionaires
National Review Online
Bill Gates is donating $1 million to push a voter initiative in Washington State that would require "universal background checks" for all would-be gun buyers. If it passes, all gun sales will have to be vetted by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). "Universal background checks" has a nice poll-tested ring to it, but in reality it will really just make it more expensive and burdensome for private Americans to do what they've always done: trade, buy and sell guns among themselves.

American Rifleman
Ruger has announced that it has adapted the original .308 platform of its Gunsite Scout Rifle to .223 Rem./5.56 NATO caliber. The rifles are available for immediate delivery. "This is a natural extension of the Gunsite Scout Rifle line," said Gunsite Instructor Ed Head, one of the contributors to the original Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle design. "Being chambered in a lower cost, universally available caliber, and with the Ruger reputation for reliability and accuracy, this is another serious rifle for those serious about rifles," he added.

How to choose a carry gun with the 5 Cs of concealed carry
Handguns
One of the most enduring questions in the shooting community remains: "What's the best gun for concealed carry?" Because recommending a carry gun is very subjective, it's difficult to quantify or define a specific gun for any one individual. That's when it helps to use a process for guiding someone to their ideal carry gun. The best way I've found to make a recommendation is by applying the 5 Cs of Concealed Carry to the potential carry gun.

2 well-known names unload on 'anti-gun billionaires'
Examiner
Two well-known writers have unloaded on anti-gun billionaires including Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, for pushing a Washington state gun control measure that now has the political Left turning hypocrisy into an art form. For gun rights activists who have been fighting the proverbial "good fight" in the Evergreen State, the double drubbing could perhaps not have come at a better time.

DC gun control funding restored to Congressional spending bill
Guns.com
The U.S. House recently removed a provision approved earlier this year that would have blocked funding for Washington, D.C.'s strict gun laws. The amendment, originally passed by a voice vote in the Republican-controlled chamber in July, was proposed by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., to H.R.5016, a House appropriations act that funds the District in 2015. However, Republican lawmakers introduced a "clean" bill to Capitol Hill late on Sept. 9 without the rider prohibiting funding for gun control measures.

Bloomberg's groups continue to push to ban guns in businesses
Crime Prevention Research Center
Bloomberg's groups have been pushing for sometime to get businesses to ban guns in their facilities. On Sept. 8, Panera Bread announced that it was asking customers not to bring guns to its restaurants. But much of the media coverage has been misleading, and simply asking people not to bring their guns with them won't have any legal effect. The question is if Panera Bread will be posting signs. That does not appear to be the case. Still, that gives Bloomberg's groups another PR boast.

Missouri lawmakers expand gun rights in schools
The Associated Press via St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Missouri lawmakers expanded the potential for teachers to bring guns to schools and for residents to openly carry firearms, in a vote on Sept. 11 that capped a two-year effort by the Republican-led Legislature to expand gun rights over the objection of the Democratic governor. The new law will allow specially trained school employees to carry concealed guns on campuses. It also allows anyone with a concealed weapons permit to carry guns openly, even in cities or towns with bans against the open carrying of firearms.

A submachine gun primer
Bearing Arms
The recent tragedy of a 9-year-old girl accidentally killing a supposed instructor with a Mini-Uz raises many issues, including the proper firearms and methods for introducing young children to shooting. Comments relating to this incident make clear that few people understand machineguns — and submachine guns in particular — and their proper employment. In the hope of correcting that lack of general knowledge to at least some degree, Bearing Arms presents this brief submachine gun primer.

4 things to know about mature bucks
Field & Stream
If you want to target mature bucks, the first step is to realize that older deer don't behave like younger ones. The second step is to change your hunting strategy accordingly. Telemetry research on the King Ranch in South Texas showed that older bucks simply spent more time on their bellies than younger deer. "One old buck was only mobile about 19 percent of the time," says study leader Mickey Hellickson.
