Campus carry faces last hurdle in legislature
The Texas Tribune
With less than two weeks left in the legislative session, the Texas House is all that is keeping a stalled measure requiring public universities and colleges to allow concealed handguns on their campuses from reaching the governor's desk. So-called campus carry could travel 1 of 2 routes to clear that chamber, passing as stand-alone legislation or as an amendment to another gun-related bill.

Reloading your own ammunition: Depriming
By Ken Jolly
Primers are small inserts in the base of center-fire cartridges that spark the ignition of the gunpowder. Thus, when working with primers, safety is a primary concern. There is always the possibility of a small bang, and safety glasses should be worn when working with these. Depriming — or removing the expended primer — is accomplished with a die in your set that punches the spent primer out of the cartridge and at the same time resizes the cartridge to bring it back into spec.

Supreme Court rules felons may sell or transfer possession of guns
CBS News
The Supreme Court on Monday, May 18, unanimously ruled that a convicted felon may ask a court to transfer his guns to a third party, rather than relinquishing them to the government. The decision in Henderson v. United States could have a significant impact, given how many Americans are convicted of felonies. If a person is convicted of a felony that is punishable by at least a year in prison, federal law bars that person from possessing a firearm. However, the ruling affirms that the government cannot simply seize any firearms the convicted felon owned.

Shooting stance: 7 key components of the upper triangle
Ammoland
We all were told at some point in our training to "relax, squeeze the trigger slowly and let the gun kick freely." This makes sense when you're just starting out, but if you want to shoot faster and maintain a high degree of accuracy, this basic advice will have to evolve. You will have to do things differently.

Keep your perspective
American Rifleman
Consider the fellow who arms himself against an armed invader. Not a problem. But when he chases the invader out of the house and down the street, before shooting him in the back, an obvious problem exists. The same can be said for the motorist faced with an attempted carjacking. He puts the car in Park and gets out to deal with the threat. In most cases, the smartest thing to do is to put the car in Drive and get away from the threat.
