The ATF just made it easier to submit payments on NFA forms
At the request of industry types, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearm and Explosives revised ATF Form 1 and Form 5, with the biggest change allowing the use of credit and debit cards to pay the making tax when filing a Form 1, the agency announced in a regulations update. Both Form 1 and Form 5 pertain to National Firearm Act items — machine guns, suppressors, short barreled rifles or shotguns, and other destructive devices. Form 1 is the application to make or register an item, and Form 5 is an application for a tax exempt transfer and registration of an item.

Geoshooting: Birth of a new sport
Gun Digest
The popular outdoor sport of geocaching involves getting some GPS coordinates from someone that has hidden a “treasure” out in the woods. You plug the coordinates into your GPS and set off to find the treasure. Usually it is a waterproof box where people swap some trinkets and sign and date a logbook leaving comments like, “Great hike with nice scenery” or “Sneaky spot: Clever hiding place.” The great thing about geocaching is that it gets you off the beaten path and encourages you to explore places you normally wouldn’t know even existed. The coordinates could lead you to hidden valleys, lost waterfalls or even a forgotten cemetery. At Gunsite, the 2,000-acre firearms academy near Paulden, Arizona, Ruger firearms and Yamaha four wheelers were added to the mix.

Texas state trooper asked to leave Waffle House because he had a gun
A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper said he was asked to leave a Grapevine Waffle House because he was carrying a gun, but the restaurant said it was all just a big misunderstanding. When Jeff Evans walked into the Waffle House Tuesday morning, he was not dressed in a full uniform but rather a field uniform consisting of a polo shirt and tan pants. Evans also had his duty weapon on his hip and his badge on his belt, but according to a report by a local CBS affiliate, the restaurant’s manager only saw the gun, not the badge, and asked Evans to leave.
