Legal Guide for Traveling Shooters

Many readers will be driving across multiple states this spring and summer to attend competitions. Other shooters will be heading out of state for a game hunt or to spend a week in the prairie dog fields. For $12.95 you can purchase a state-by-state Traveler’s Guide to firearms laws. Written by a lawyer, and updated for 2008, this 68-page guide covers all firearms types and all 50 states. It even has information for Canada and Mexico.

The Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States has sold more than 600,000 copies since it was first released in 1996. The book’s author, Attorney J. Scott Kappas, has written numerous magazine articles and has appeared on television, explaining the unexpected pitfalls that shooters may encounter when traveling with firearms. Along with being an attorney, Mr. Kappas serves as a director on the Board of the Kentucky Firearms Foundation, and Kappas is a Class III firearms dealer.

The Traveler’s Guide has proven especially useful for shooters traveling in RVs and motorhomes. One reader from Texas noted: “”I used to think that my RV was the same as my home when it came to gun carry….the Traveler’s Guide set me straight. Now I know my motorhome is subject to the same laws as any vehicle when it comes to guns”

Scroogle Service Offers Enhanced Web Privacy

Active web-surfers have come to rely on Google’s impressive search functionality. Google is the #1 search engine for a reason. It is fast, and more often that not, Google finds what you’re looking for quickly and efficiently.

However, Google has a dark side. Google uses “cookies” to track the activities of web users. Google also records your computer IP and archives the searches you perform and the links you click. If you don’t like that idea, you can use the Scroogle web service. What this does is create a separate IP that hides your computer from Google’s data miners, and prevents the recording of your search terms and search destinations. While Google keeps your search terms until 2038, the folks at Scroogle delete the logs after 48 hours and vow to keep no cookies.

Note: You still get to use Google’s powerful search engine. But you can maintain your anonymity by starting at the Scroogle web page. Using this search page, you’ll get the top 100 search results provided by Google, but with no ads, no cookies, and no search activity tracking.
