And nowhere are these fears more evident than in the market for "compact" handguns, whose small size makes them ideal for gun owners to "conceal-carry." According to CNN, sales of handguns designed for concealed carry are growing at twice the pace of those of larger, full-size handguns. And now, Glock wants in on that action.

Shooting circles: Improve your aim with these simple shooting drills
Gun Digest
Although we shoot our defensive pistol at center mass, shooting it precisely is also important. Shooting groups with a pistol is fun and also helps us develop better trigger control and trigger reset ability. Trigger reset is the amount of return your finger allows on the trigger until it clicks or resets for the next shot. This of course pertains to semi-autos but is part of trigger control. I like to start all of my training sessions shooting circles.

The Texas Tribune
With the Legislature almost certain to loosen restrictions on how and where people can carry handguns, a House committee recently considered streamlining the process for businesses to ban guns on their private property.

Most major US cities ban or restrict handgun open carry, despite contrary state trend
San Antonio Express-News via Midland Reporter-Telegram

If legislation passes like it is expected to, both Houston and Dallas would become the largest metro areas in the country allowing open carry according to the Texas Tribune. As of right now Texas is also just one of six states that prohibit open carry thought that will likely change soon.

Let's start with riflescopes. These days most hunters use far more magnification than their fathers and grandfathers, and more magnification makes focus critical. The standard advice since granddad's day has been to focus the scope until both the view and reticle become as sharp as possible.
