Semi-autos for concealed carry
Gun Digest
As with revolvers, selecting a semi-automatic handgun from a prominent manufacturer who has a proven track record of a decade or two in business is a good idea. While everyone likes to have something that is unique, the more mainstream your defense handgun, the easier it will be for you to find a wide variety of accessories like holsters, sights, replacement magazines and grips, to say nothing of repair parts in the event of breakage.

Bloomberg is his own worst enemy on gun-control
Town Hall
At first, it looked like an epic-fail for Michael Bloomberg's new gun control group, Everytown For Gun Safety. Deciding that they should organize a protest outside of the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis, gun control advocates "flocked" to show their disdain for American gun-owners. But, there was only one problem: With a mere 25 people deciding to show up for one of the local rallies, the "protest" looked more like an OFA global warming meeting.

Hunters, shooters plan to keep spending
The Shooting Wire
While pundits may still be arguing over how much of an economic recovery the United States has experienced since the recent recession, companies that make and sell shooting and hunting products have been fortunate to enjoy a steady stream of business. For 2014, outside of firearms, things don't look like they are going to slow down either. According to a recent HunterSurvey.com poll, the majority of shooters and hunters expect to spend as much on shooting and hunting equipment as they did last year.

Guns Magazine
For decades, Smith & Wesson's ubiquitous J-frame revolver has served law enforcement and civilians as a backup gun or primary concealed carry gun. While it at times gets a bad rap for being difficult to shoot and slow to reload, this diminutive 5-round revolver has nonetheless ridden hidden in more pockets than perhaps any other gun. While other firearms manufacturers design and manufacture smaller and smaller guns, the J-frame still reigns supreme in the hearts — and pockets — of many.

Grisham of Open Carry Texas told The Texas Tribune.

America's elites love fearmongering about gun policy
The Federalist
For all its braggadocio about being the political faction dedicated to "science" and reason and fact-driven opinion and intelligence, the elitist left is remarkably uneducated and illiterate when it comes to firearms. It is common knowledge that progressives are prone to using terms like "military-style assault weapon" without grasping what such terms even mean; it is equally well-known that they are unable to grasp firearm terminology to the point where they can tell the difference between a magazine and a clip.
