TCHA open carry survey
TCHA
The Texas Legislature will reconvene in January 2015. It is certain that "open carry" legislation will be proposed, but no one can be certain what will emerge as new law. The TCHA Board of Directors has considered whether to take an official position. Since there are so many aspects to the question, and the impact could be so broad, we're surveying the concealed carry community before taking any position. Please consider taking this five question quiz so that TCHA can take a stance.

KPRC-TV

The Houston Chronicle reports that experts attribute the slowdown to waning fears of stricter federal regulations. Gun sales spiked across the nation after the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school massacre in 2012.

Baylor campus carry bill vetoed by student body president
Waco Tribune

Student Body President Dominic Edwards announced his veto at a recent senate meeting. He presented a PowerPoint outlining his concerns about whether the resolution’s passage violated the senate’s constitution by not properly seeking input from students, faculty and staff.

Texas' plan to allow alcohol sales at gun shows get shot down
The Associated Press via TIME
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) withdrew a recent proposal to allow sales of alcohol at some gun shows after receiving a barrage of public comments against the plan. The plan would have enforced strict conditions, including a ban on live ammunition and requiring the show’s venue to have a liquor license, the Associated Press reports. Still, many critics, including gun show operators, felt that mixing guns and alcohol was dangerous.

'Don't lie for the other guy' is a tool box for retailers, not a hammer to be used against them
National Shooting Sports Foundation
“Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” was formed as a cooperative program between the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) more than a dozen years years ago to help ATF educate federal firearms licensees to be better able to identify and prevent illegal straw purchases of firearms and to raise public awareness about the seriousness of the crime of purchasing a firearm for someone who cannot legally do so.

Best states for concealed carry 2014
Guns & Ammo
It has been nearly 30 years since Florida started the CCW ball rolling across the nation and the modern concealed carry revolution began. Since that time, the national pendulum has swung to the point of shall-issue carry laws being the rule rather than the exception. Even Illinois has joined the ranks of Right to Carry states, and it’s possible that we could see permits issued in D.C. before the year is out. Things are good and looking even better for Americans who exercise their right to self-preservation by means of carrying a concealed firearm.

Modern target shooters trending young, female and city-dwelling
National Shooting Sports Foundation via GUNS
Younger people, city-dwellers and females are quickly becoming the faces of target shooting, according to numbers released last week by the Connecticut-based National Sports Shooting Foundation. Females made up 37 percent of new shooters and only 22 percent of experienced trigger fingers during the five-year period. New target shooters also got a start later in life — some 77 percent of them didn’t pick up a gun for sport until after the age of 18. Just 19 percent of established shooters were older than 18 when they first took aim.

3-gun essentials: Target diversity
AmmoLand
One of the coolest things about 3-Gun is the fact that we get the opportunity to shoot targets that range from arms-reach distance all the way out to 500+ yards, sometimes in the same course of fire. That target diversity is also one of the toughest aspects of the sport. It requires tremendous discipline to dial our speed, and focus level up and down accordingly. It’s very important to have drills in your practice regimen that sharpen this skill.
