A crash in ammunition prices is coming
Ammoland
Handgun and rifle ammunition has been hard to find at times. .22 long rifle ammunition tripled in price over the last 18 months. People would line up to buy ammunition at prices two and three times the level that they were just two years ago. All of that is about to change — ammunition supply looks as though it is ready to catch up with demand.

'Heroic' action to try and stop Vegas killers
USA Today
Joseph Wilcox went to Walmart to return an Internet modem. Instead, he became the third victim of a violent husband-and-wife shooting spree in Las Vegas that left two police officers dead, as well as the shooters. Police on described Wilcox, 31, as "heroic" for trying to confront the shooters with his concealed handgun as they entered the store. But his family described him as a quiet man who wanted to be a police officer and didn't always carry a gun.

Downsizing defense
GUNS Magazine
The 9mm is increasing in popularity — again — but are the choices being made for the right reasons? For a couple of years now, there has been a building wave, though not yet a tsunami by any means, of law enforcement agencies “powering down” from .40’s, .45’s and .357 SIG’s to 9mm pistols for duty.

Senate may return to guns
Politico
The 113th Congress is not done with its debate over guns and background checks. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hinted recently that his chamber may vote on the bipartisan gun background checks bill again this year — and said such a law could have prevented a mass shooting in Las Vegas. “Very few days go by that we don’t have these killings. The man in Las Vegas — clearly from what I’ve been able to read — was a felon. He couldn’t have bought a gun if he had background checks,” Reid told reporters.

Ladies choice
American Rifleman
If you are asked to contribute to the selection process for a particular woman, understand that there are several common mistakes to be avoided. Understanding that the woman’s hands are smaller, don’t go too far in choosing something that is little and fits the popular image of a woman’s gun. If a woman really wants a handgun, she knows her own mindset and wants all the gun that she can possibly handle.

Off to the pour I go — with what?
GUNS Magazine
Cast bullet alloys come in many varieties. GUNS Magazine has long touted the idea that casting one’s own bullets is a good path to follow. It definitely is: both in the satisfaction of doing something for yourself and in the freedom to make most any sort of bullet desired. A question that GUNS receives sometimes in response to those articles is, “With the decline of wheelweight availability what do you recommend for cheap alloy?”

Open Carry gun rights activists will be out in full force at the state’s GOP convention in Fort Worth. "There’s a lot of talk in the party about constitutional carry and furthering more gun rights in Texas, so we’ve invited all the Open Carriers across the state to come out to the convention this week,” said Kory Watkins, leader of the controversial group Open Carry Tarrant County. “The black powder revolvers are allowed inside, but the shotguns and the rifles will be outside, and we’ll just have demonstrators throughout the week.”
