Texas bill would bar punishing students for mimicking guns
San Antonio Express-News
If you think it’s a half-baked idea to legally protect kids’ rights to play with their food, think again, one Texas lawmaker says. Rep. Ryan Guillen, D-Rio Grande City, has filed a bill that would prohibit schools from punishing students who use their hands, playthings and, yes, even pastry items to mimic firearms. The proposed legislation also would protect students through fifth grade who play with toy guns or draw or possess pictures of guns.

Teachers with guns
CNN
David Thweatt is not a man who minces words. “If someone breaks into our homes, and there's really no way for us to escape — if my children are there — it's capital punishment. We're not asking, ‘Hey, are you on drugs? Did you go into the wrong home?’ ” And what's good enough for Thweatt at home is good enough for the Texas school he runs.

Remington issues recall on select Model 887 shotguns
GUNS
Remington is recalling all Model 887 shotguns manufactured between Dec. 1, 2013 and Nov. 24, 2014 for safety reasons. If you have a late model Remington 887 made or purchased in the last year or so your shotgun may fall into the recall range. Remington flagged these guns over a defect that might bind the firing pin to the forward position. If a round is chambered with the firing pin locked forward it’s possible the shotgun may fire, resulting in an unintentional discharge.

Building on the customers you have
National Shooting Sports Foundation
One of the most important questions that retailers should ask themselves is, “Who are my customers?” If that sounds like a pretty general question, well, it is. But what I’m getting at is that there are all different types of buyers walking into your store every day. Learning to recognize those types and what, how and why they buy can improve your profitability and expand your customer base.

The correct shotgun choke can make all the difference
By Irwin Greenstein
The wise use of shotgun chokes can make a significant difference in the results you'll see for wing and clays shooting. In the strictest interpretation, the choke section of the barrel determines the constriction of the muzzle in order to regulate distribution of the shot charge to your target. These days, however, a choke often refers to an interchangeable tube that screws into the muzzle of the shotgun. By adjusting the density of the pellet spread, the choke lets you achieve maximum penetration depending on the distance, angle and velocity of the target.

Stop thinking to shoot faster
Handguns
There are a couple of often-used axioms when it comes to speeding up our draw stroke and shooting: “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast” and “Reduce motion to increase speed,” also known as “Conservation of Motion.” Both concepts are valid. It certainly makes sense that the fewer number of movements you make and the less distance you cover, the faster your action will be. Likewise, it is good advice to smooth your movements as it takes longer to get a proper sight picture when having to correct a jerky draw stroke than it takes by moving a bit slower, but smoother.

10 most common reloading mistakes
Shooting Times
The old warning, “Don’t ever shoot ammo reloaded by anybody but yourself” has saved shooters a lot of grief over the years. Another should exist: “Be afraid of your own sloppy reloading habits.” Poor reloading habits seem to commonly fly under the safety radar. Most of the newer firearms available today are very strong, allowing small reloading mistakes to go undetected.
