Firearms manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. of Southport, Conn., has purchased a minority interest in West Chester crossbow manufacturer Kodabow, a start-up that made its first sale in 2010 and had revenues of close to $1 million last year.

Mike Andrel whacks his dog Ruger on the flank to make him bark angrily at a colleague and, on command, leap and bite the man's arm - hard. "Platz!" yells Andrel, using the German word for "sit. " Instantly, Ruger begs off, eyeing the asbestos arm protector on his victim but obediently awaiting new commands. The apparent violence of the exercise belies the subtlety of police-dog training - an art that has propelled Andrel to the closest thing there is to a world championship.

Myla Friedman and Bryan Edwards looked like modern young lovers deeply involved in an old-fashioned romance. The fashionably dressed couple dined at trendy Spring Garden restaurants and danced at popular Center City clubs, friends and acquaintances recalled. He would carry her law books, she would cook special meals for him, and they would cuddle in each other's arms when they watched television. But those displays of affection hid a volatile disharmony, two of the couple's close friends said.

With more than 200 Philadelphia police officers packing the courtroom behind them, the two brothers charged with killing Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Wilson III during a March 5 robbery waived their preliminary hearing Wednesday. The decision by Carlton Hipps, 29, and Ramone Williams, 25, to let their cases proceed directly to trial aborted a hearing that had been expected to last most of the day. Nevertheless, Assistant District Attorneys Brian Zarallo and Brendan O'Malley spent about 15 minutes outlining for Philadelphia Municipal Court Judge Teresa Carr Deni the evidence they would have presented.

If the NRA produced a family sitcom ... Dad: Hustle up, kids, we're gonna be late for the movies! Hey, Biff, where's your little brother? Biff: He won't leave his room, Dad. And he's refusing to wear his gun. Skippy is, like, such a dork. Dad: Skippy, you come out here right now — duly armed! And rack the slide on your Glock. We're going out for a night of family entertainment. Skippy finally skulks into the foyer — without his Glock. Dad: Son, since you persist in trying my patience, I will ask you one simple question: Why do you hate freedom?

It's a gun-seller's market out there, what with the Brady bill triggering beat-the-rush buying and the fear-and-loathing index zooming up. Perversely, some shops are doing a brisk business in the Ruger sidearm, whose killing power was so effectively demonstrated by Colin Ferguson, the loony who allegedly offed half a dozen Long Island commuters. (The Ruger, of course, is for those modest souls not given over to a need for the semi-automatic rifle or one of those Tech-9s, with a clip of impressive proportions.

When Douglas Barnhart closes his eyes to sleep, he sees the flash of a gun, the look of surprise on his best friend's face and the blood on his own hands as he administers cardiopulmonary resuscitation. "He died in my arms. It's a nightmare I'll relive every night my whole life," the 26-year-old Upper Dublin man said, describing the fast-draw game that turned deadly for Timothy Rasely, 29, of Easton. Barnhart forgot he had reloaded his Ruger .357 revolver when he joined Rasely's Wild West pretense on April 26. Barnhart pleaded guilty yesterday in Montgomery County Court to involuntary manslaughter.

After her son was killed in 2008, Sherderian Sutton got a Philadelphia license to carry a concealed weapon and a small Ruger pistol to protect herself and her surviving children. On Monday, when police knocked on her door, Sutton hoped that they were bringing the news she's waited two years to hear. "I thought they were coming to my door to tell me they had my son's murderer," she said. "But they were coming to take me and my gun, and now I'm defenseless. " Sutton, 38, of North Philadelphia, said that her troubles began last week, when workers from Wilco Cable came to her back door to ask for permission to work in her yard.

The relationship between women and guns is one Sigmund Freud would love. I first observed this phenomenon one summer while tending bar at a resort in Pennsylvania's Endless Mountains. I was in college. Most of the staff were students at Bloomsburg University. I brought along a .22-caliber revolver with the idea of enjoying some occasional target shooting. One Sunday I invited one of the waitresses to join me. She accepted, but with the caveat that she had never fired a gun. "Not to worry," I said convincingly, "I'll show you the basics.
