In this photo taken on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, Japanese tourists walk under a Japanese banner that reads: "Live firing range" of a gun club on the tiny U.S. island of Guam in Tamuning. For many tourists from Japan, the biggest thrill is the chance to shoot a gun at one of Guam's ubiquitous ranges, dozens of which are tucked between upscale shopping centers. The U.S. territory of Guam - a tropical island often described as a cheaper version of Hawaii - has long been the perfect place to put guns in the hands of tourists, especially from Japan, where gun ownership is tightly restricted and handguns are banned. Despite a shared sense of shock over the recent rampage by a gunman at America's Sandy Hook Elementary School, the gun tourism business here is as brisk as ever. (AP Photo/Eric Talmadge)
