Can you safely call a time-out during a home invasion of your residence?
AmmoLand
Rick Ector, a contributor for AmmoLand, writes: "As a Firearm Safety and Personal Protection Instructor in Detroit, I teach my Michigan Concealed Pistol License Class students how to implement systems to both protect themselves both out on the street and while in the comfy environs of their homes. I always stress to them to always be prepared. At any moment, they can be under attack from a predator, even while at home."

Open carry supporters don rifles at rally
KDFW-TV
Some North Texans want the legal right to carry both long guns and handguns out in the open. Open Carry Tarrant County held a peaceful demonstration in Keller recently. The group organized the rally to show their support for the Second Amendment. "We see a problem with gun rights, they're very far away from what the Constitution originally intended for the Second Amendment, and so we are trying to further gun rights in Texas," said Kory Watkins.

Reporting self-defense with a gun to law enforcement
AmmoLand
This week's Law of Self Defense: Question of the Week comes from "Alliance Bean," who asks: "What's your opinion on reporting to law enforcement when drawing your weapon to fend off an attack without witnesses? Any downside?"

This is a great question, one that I'm sure everyone who carries concealed has asked themselves at one point.

Mere presence of gun prompts no-knock raid
WND
Texas law-enforcement officers conducted a no-knock raid as if a firearm in the home "could somehow load itself, disengage its own safety, open the door and begin to fire at the police," according to a brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court. Attorneys with William Olson P.C. and the United States Justice Foundation submitted the friend-of-the-court brief this week in a case brought on behalf of John Quinn.

Saxet Gun Show owner says new contract is a non-starter
The Austin American-Statesman
The gun show contract approved by Travis County commissioners is a non-starter, the owner of the Saxet Gun Show says. The contract for future gun shows at the Travis County Exposition Center would have required at least 90 percent of the vendors to be federally-licensed gun dealers, and all of the buyers would have to clear a background check. That measure was rejected on arrival by Saxet Gun Show organizers who have repeatedly said they won't host a show that requires unlicensed sellers to conduct background checks.

Senator: Make it legal to bring concealed guns across state lines
Politix
Concealed gun permit holders would be able to travel lawfully to other states with their firearms, under legislation offered by Sen. John Cornyn. The Texas Republican's bill would require states that have concealed-carry laws to allow permit holders from other states to carry weapons, as long as they abide by restrictions in jurisdictions they are visiting. Currently, all states allow some form of concealed carry although some, such as New York and Connecticut, are much more stringent than states such as Texas.

Each situation warrants a particular method of reloading — for example, some circumstances require magazine retainment, while others don't. Also, shooters of varying shapes and sizes may reload their handguns in a method that's most comfortable to their shooting style.
