Texas House kills bill to let lawmakers carry concealed pistols anywhere
The Austin American-Statesman
A bill that would have allowed Texas state officials and lawmakers to carry concealed weapons almost anywhere they wish, even in places where other Texans cannot, was killed by the Texas House. The House refused to approve a final version of House Bill 508, just hours after the Senate had approved that version 22-9 — with opponents expressing alarm that they were giving themselves an unneeded special privilege.

  You Need to Carry IWB

When it comes to concealing a handgun, inside the waistband holsters (IWB) are the stealthiest way to go.
Most people think that carrying IWB means sacrificing comfort. We highly recommend Old Faithful Holsters' Stealth-Tuck holster to get the job done right.

The New York Times is a tool of Brady Campaign
The Washington Times
The New York Times has turned into a docile tool of anti-gun organizations. The newspaper hates firearms so much that it published a front page story with no news, but only decade-old testimony, in an attempt to blame gun manufacturers for recent mass shootings. The above-the-fold headline in the paper blared: "Gun Makers Saw No Role in Curbing Improper Sales." The story was on the top right side, next to a large photo of a young mother holding her young son at her veteran husband's grave at Arlington National Cemetery. Not subtle.

How do you break in your barrels and should you bother?
American Hunter
Keith Wood, a contributor for American Hunter, writes: "Recently, I had my .280 Ackley rebarreled with a 26-inch stainless blank from Lilja. It was a great all-around rifle with the 24-inch Douglas barrel that it wore for 10+ years, but now I have a larger selection of big game rifles to choose from and I wanted something that filled a more specific niche. This rifle is to be used to send 140 gr. bullets as fast as I can push them while maintaining accuracy, for hunting deer in wide-open spaces. Essentially, I've always wondered what the rifle would do with a 26-inch barrel and it was time to find out. Practical? No. It's my money (no, I don't get free barrels)."
