How to deal with unsolicited advice on the range
NRA Family InSights
You know the type. He might be a regular at the gun club, or he's there with his buddies for a day shoot or maybe he's by himself zeroing his rifle. He eyes you with your firearm, and as soon as he can get a moment alone with you, he sidles up. Let's face it: Many women shooters — even very experienced ones — find themselves the subject of unsolicited advice on the range. Gunsite Instructor Il Ling New shows you how to get back to your range time ... unimpeded.

Dr. John Lott responds to 'More Guns, More Crime'
VSSA
In a November 25 letter to the editor of The Washington Post, Dr. John R. Lott, Lloyd Cohen, professor, George Mason University School of Law, and Carl Moody, professor, College of William and Mary Department of Economics, responded to Christopher Ingraham's "More Guns, More Crime" Wonkblog post that appeared in mid-November. In that post Ingraham reported on a "slightly updated paper" by law professor John Donohue and two graduate students that purported to show that by adding additional data to a previous study, their research shows that concealed carry laws actually increased crime on states with such laws.

The Ninth Circuit and the right to carry guns: Hello again, Peruta
The Washington Post
Last month, I blogged a post with the title, "The Ninth Circuit and the right to carry guns: Good-bye Peruta, hello Richards and Baker." As that post noted, in February, a three-judge Ninth Circuit panel held that the Second Amendment secures a right to carry guns in many public places, and not just to possess guns at home. Naturally, this has been quite controversial, but the San Diego County defendants decided not to ask the Ninth Circuit to rehear the case en banc (i.e., by an 11-judge panel). But at least one judge has called for en banc rehearing in that case, even without a petition for rehearing filed by one of the parties.

The correct shotgun choke can make all the difference
By Irwin Greenstein
The wise use of shotgun chokes can make a significant difference in the results you'll see in your shooting. In the strictest interpretation, the choke section of the barrel determines the constriction of the muzzle in order to regulate distribution of the shot charge to your target. These days, however, a choke often refers to an interchangeable tube that screws into the muzzle of the shotgun. By adjusting the density of the pellet spread, the choke lets you achieve maximum penetration depending on the distance, angle and velocity of the target.

2 cited for carrying guns at Richmond International Airport
Richmond Times-Dispatch
Two Virginia residents were cited for carrying guns at Richmond International Airport on Dec. 1, as the number of guns caught at checkpoints nationwide hit an all-time high. State charges were placed against both men, one from Midlothian and the other from Meherin, after TSA officers caught them at checkpoints with .38-caliber guns.

Best self-defense revolvers available today
Handguns Magazine
Although semiautos are the flavor of the day for personal protection, revolvers still have some very real advantages. Because revolvers are operated by sheer human muscle rather than by harnessed energy from the cartridge itself, they simply don't malfunction as often. If one hangs up a bit, just apply a little more good old-fashioned brute force, and it will keep right on singing.
