There's something new on the hunting scene in Maryland this year. If you have a child, spouse, relative or friend who has never hunted but would like to give it a try, it could be just what you've been hoping for. Legislation was passed last spring that created an apprentice hunting license, allowing any new hunter to try hunting for one year under the tutelage of a licensed adult hunter 18 or older, before they must make the time commitment of taking the full hunter safety class.

Public misperceptions about gun silencers is probably what kept American Outdoor Brands' (NASDAQ: AOBC) purchase of leading suppressor manufacturer Gemini Technologies from exciting the market as much as it should have. But it is a smart acquisition nonetheless that comes at an opportune time for the firearms manufacturer, as it will help it better target and keep pace with rival Sturm, Ruger (NYSE: RGR) while preparing for the boom to come.

Yesterday, a National Rifle Association spokesperson appeared on NRATV—the NRA network—to defend NRA positions with an NRATV host. Yet somehow, the messaging still managed to go off-the-rails. Host Grant Stinchfield cited a Center for American Progress study about gun theft and legislation the CAP supports to address the issue.

I am a long-term buy-and-hold investor and I am willing to ride out any stock price storms if I believe a company is fundamentally strong. That being said, I still choose to routinely review my investments, especially when something drastic happens, to see if the fundamentals remain intact. Buy and hold is different than buy and forget.

The Shield v. Shield project commences, and the first order of business is to upgrade the sights. The project gun came with the standard, white, three-dot sights, so commonly seen on personal-defense firearms. The Performance Center Ported M&P Shield, on the other hand, sports a good set of tritium-powered night sights, also in a three-dot configuration, but incorporating tritium vials into the center of the white dots.

Walther PPQ M2 Pistol in 45ACP – Range Report & Gun Review

When I think of Walthers, I think of James Bond. Whether it was the Walther PPK in 7.65mm, the PPK in 380, P99 in 9mm or even the WA2000 Sniper rifle; whenever I see that Walther banner logo, I think of 007. I have yet to meet a shooter that purchased a Walther PPK that did not do so on account of watching a James Bond movie or reading one of the books and when Walther turned to polymer in the mid-1990s with the P99, they lost me as a fan. Not that it was a bad pistol; it simply lacked the classic lines of the PPK, P5 or even the P-38.
 

First Gear: SST Cases And S3 Reloading Dies

Few things in the firearms “biz” have proven more enduring than brass as a case material. Generally a 70/30 mix of copper and zinc, it has thermal, lubricity, workability and corrosion-resistance characteristics that make it a natural for the job of turning powder, primer and projectile into velocity. There’s even a case—ha, ha—to be made that it is eco-friendly: Roughly 90-percent of all brass is recycled. It is unclear if reloading figures in this calculation in any way, though we think we’ve done our part on this score.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam recently found himself in a verbal shootout with some in the news media over his embrace of the National Rifle Association. Responding to criticism in the past week in the Tampa Bay Times, which was apparently triggered by Putnam’s advocacy for allowing concealed-weapon permit-holders to tote guns on college campuses, the Republican gubernatorial candidate and Bartow native defended his relationship with the nation’s most prominent gun rights’ group.
 

The Gun-Show Loophole Seems to Have Shrunk

If you follow debates in Virginia’s General Assembly, you might get the impression that the state could sharply curtail the violent-crime rate if only lawmakers would close the “gun-show loophole.” New data suggest the impression is mistaken. Federally licensed firearm dealers must conduct a background check on prospective purchasers, but private sellers don’t have to. That’s true regardless of whether the transaction takes place at a gun show or not. Yet to hear advocates and some legislators talk, you’d think gun shows provide hardened criminals with a steady stream of easy weapons.
 

Smart Gun Security Cracked in a Proof-of-Concept Hack

Guns are in the news here in America far too often. No matter what the news may be, we hear about guns used inappropriately far too often. A recent implementation meant to decrease accidental firing and un-approved use is the smart gun. These guns require a second form of authentication, whether it be from a separate watch that talks to the gun, or a fingerprint scan on the gun itself. While this is a great step in an attempt to reduce gun violence, it’s still relatively new technology.

A stack of new state laws concerning guns, schools, even wine take effect next week. One allows concealed carry license holders to keep their gun on their employer's property. Act 1071 states Arkansans with the permits can store their guns in their cars out of sight and under lock and key in a private employer's parking lot. "I'm sure a significant number of Americans have been doing this long before concealed carry licenses have come out," said Chuck Schlichting, a CCL holder for three years.

A group dedicated to preventing gun violence has concerns, over a bill that could have Wisconsin high schools teaching kids how to safely handle guns. The legislation from Republican lawmakers requires the Departments of Public Instruction, and Natural Resources to develop the curriculum. “Our concern is that it’s not actually firearms safety, it’s really about teaching children to enjoy shooting firearms,” said Annalise Dickman with WAVE — Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort.

A lengthy article, “Australians view woman’s shooting by police a US ‘nightmare,’” which was published in the U-B on July 18, was a masterpiece of anti-gun propaganda — propaganda that always has a ready forum in the media. The Australians are outraged by “America’s notorious culture of gun violence.” Well, many of us were outraged when Australia, supposedly a democracy, banned, confiscated and destroyed hundreds of thousands of legally owned, dutifully registered firearms from the Australian people.

There are a number of lies floating around the gun-control argument. The people who want you disarmed have done a great job at spreading these catchy phrases across our culture. They changed their branding from "gun control" to "gun registration" to "commonsense gun safety."

In the age of 144 character news, you have to read below the headlines. Let’s dig a little deeper and separated fact from fiction. (600 words at the link)

In the ongoing Second Amendment debate between gun control and pro-gun supporters, a fracture has appeared on the pro-gun side, a “friendly fire” infighting situation among all those who cherish and hold dear those words enamored in Article II of our Bill of Rights, specifically “... the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” For comparison, the Constitution of the state of Georgia states in Paragraph VIII of Article 1 that “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, but the General Assembly shall have power to prescribe the manner in which arms may be borne.”
