Best Components of a Scope that Makes a Good Scope at a Cheap Price

Here is the guide to find the best components of a scope that makes a good scope at a cheap price with quality perfection.

Components of a scope that makes a good scope at a cheap price

When you start hunting and shooting the first question that flashes through your mind is what can be the best objects for our hunting and shooting. After selecting a rifle, there is a need to select the perfect scope for your needs.

If we are looking forward to the best quality scopes, we should keep some important things in our mind. These are very important features of the best scope that are the basic requirements of every hunter and shooter.

First of all, you must decide your needs and then work for searching for the best scope. The best scope contains a few features. It provides a clear reticle, easy to use, and adjusts, mounts up easily, provides maximum magnification, and it must be less in price.

 Selection of long-range scopes:

In order to select the perfect long-range scope, you will prefer high-quality optics that contain maximum features. You must keep in mind the optics with the best reticle system, easily adjustable eyepiece, and clear image of an object even in less illumination.

All of these features must be the basic criteria for the best long-range scope. You should consider the best quality optics for your requirements. What can be the best choice, this will be decided by the required features.

If you are looking for long-range scopes, then you should be well aware of the price range. Because most long-range scopes are more than $600 which is not such a small amount. So first of all you should decide your needs, then select the best rifle scope for the shooting requirements.

Long-range scopes are able to hunt and acquire the target from a very vast range. And most of the long-range scopes. They are often equipped with laser technology. Which can enhance your chances of acquiring the target.

  Best Optics for hunting RangeFinder/ Outdoor opticals:

Best scopes for hunting purposes and range finding are those which can facilitate you and provide a clear image of the targeted object. Most optics will provide you this facility and provide the best hunting experience.

For hunting in suburbs and small jungles, common optics can be used. But for hunting the wide plains that are more than 400 yards, it is not a common requirement of hunters, it needs some features in the hunt in the vast plains.

Some important features of best-hunting scopes:

Glass Quality: Must contain the brilliant quality of glass, in order to make perfect aim this feature must exist in optics.  

Clear reticle: Must provide a clear reticle for perfect aiming on target.

Easily adjustable: When you are looking for long ranges, you must select those optics which are easily portable and can be easily adjustable for quick aiming on target.

Eye relief: Must provide proper eye relief so that you can be able to take space after one round.

Budget: The price range of long-range scope is a little bit high because in this field you need a lot of features which are available in the most high-quality optic. In common practice, their price range lies $600 to $1000.

Weight: Low weight scopes are preferred by most professionals. You must consider the scope under 24 ounces, but if you need high features like parallax correction, higher magnification, and huge objective diameter then it’s totally up to you. But in most experiences, scopes under 30 ounces are preferred and provide the best results for hunting.

Warranty: You must prefer those optics whose sensitive objects are guaranteed to work properly, and in case of unusual functioning you might be able to claim. In this way, you can protect yourself from loss of time, money, and mental health.

These features are the basic criteria to select the optics for your hunting fields. You must see these features and then select the best optics.

Our Verdict about Long Range Scopes:

The long-range acquisition is not as easy as you thought. It needs proper practice and awareness for long-range shooting. You should prefer those objects which are highly satisfying for hunting requirements. 

Those objects which are most familiar to your requirements you should opt for. Above mentioned features of long-range scopes will help you to find the best optics. In order to study more about the best long-range scopes.

DEFEND FLORIDA ALERTS: Biden Overreach and Concealed Carry in the Sunshine State

Caroline Wetherington – DefendFlorida!

Florida Alert #1 – The Florida Senate Judiciary Committee Added Concealed Carry to the Committee Agenda.

Concealed Carry Bill is Being Publicly Heard on Feb. 1, 2021. 

That means you can voice your approval at the hearing! The Chair of the Judiciary Committee has added Senate Bill 498 (Concealed Carry at Religious Institutions) to the committee’s agenda for Monday. What does this mean? It means that this bill will take its first step to be voted on. The public is allowed comment and show their support for this bill. As a Second Amendment Activist,

ACTION: Please complete a Committee Appearance Form. We need citizens to speak up! Without this, you cannot speak before the committee.

Show up on Feb.1, 2021 Due to COVID-19, the hearing will be at Room A3 of FSU’s Donald L. Tucker Civic Center

505 Pensacola Street,
Tallahassee, FL 32301. Room A3

The hearing starts at 2:30pm.

Remember folks, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Be loud, be proud, and be ACTIVE. 

Please arrive at the Civic Center early. With the way the Senate functions, being early is on time and being on time is late. Why? Because if you don’t turn in your Committee Appearance Form prior to the start of the hearing, you will not be allowed to speak. Time is always rationed to speakers, so have a concise and orderly plan of action. Have your speaking points organized and ready to go. Remember, be polite but firm on your stance. Your talking points should be based on the following:

Some talking points:

  1. Floridians have the right to practice their religious beliefs and be able to defend those beliefs. Just because a religious institution also has a school on its property, shouldn’t bar you from legally protecting yourself.
  2. The best solution is to amend this bill so it just outright repeals all the Gun Free Zones currently listed under State Statute. 790.06 (12)(a).
  3. As tragically proven by the shootings at the Pittsburgh Synagogue and the Sutherland Springs Church in Texas, criminals will attack good people in places of worship. No law that forbids concealed carry at these locations stops criminals from committing violence against honest people; and anyone who thinks it will is either lying or delusional.

If you are unable to attend you still have a voice…

ACTION: PLEASE IMMEDIATELY EMAIL THESE SENATORS! URGE THEM TO VOTE YES ON SB-498In the subject line put:  Vote YES on SB-498 Safety of Churches! (Block and Copy All email addresses into the “Send To” box)

Florida Alert #2 – 6 State Attorneys General Warn Biden Over Potential Presidential Overreach.

The letter, signed by six attorneys general (AGs), puts the Biden administration on notice that any actions that might exceed their statutory authority, are inconsistent with constitutional tenets, or place civil liberties at risk could trigger legal action by the states. “We stand ready to meet with your administration to discuss more how the issues below affect our States; litigation is never first option, and we would like to help your team in its important job on behalf of all Americans, consistent with the Constitution and the rule of law,” West Virginia AG Patrick Morrisey, who is leading the group, wrote in the letter addressed to the White House (pdf).“Yet if you sign unconstitutional laws passed by Congress, it will be our responsibility and duty to challenge those laws in court. If cabinet officials, executive officers, and agencies go beyond the bounds of their statutory authority, fail to follow legally required procedures, or fall short of the bedrock Administrative Procedure Act obligation of reasoned decision making, it will likewise be our responsibility to take action.”

ACTION: We are asking you to email Florida’s Attorney General, Ashley Moody. We would like Florida to join in the fight to stop Biden and D.C from overreach. You can click on the PDF link above and attach the link in the email.

Example Email: (COPY, PASTE, ADJUST TO YOUR OWN PREFERENCE)

Fleeing Political Persecution, NRA Files for Bankruptcy, Moving From New York To Texas

New York is run by the Democrat criminal syndicate. The Attorney General is pursues political prosecutions while allowing violent criminals to prowl the streets.

NRA files for bankruptcy, moving from New York to Texas

Gun rights group blamed state’s ‘toxic political environment’ for move

By: Graeme Massie, The Independent, January 17, 2020:

The National Rifle Association has filed for bankruptcy and announced it is moving from New York to Texas.

The gun rights advocacy group says it is making the move to escape the “toxic political environment of New York.”

Now the organisation, which has been chartered in New York since 1871, says it plans on restructuring as a Texas non-profit.

“Today, the NRA announced a restructuring plan that positions us for the long-term and ensures our continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom – free from the toxic political environment of New York,” said NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre.

“The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas.”

Ms James attacked the NRA’s move in a statement and said it would not prevent her investigating them.

“The NRA’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt,” she said.

“While we review this filing, we will not allow the NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight.”

NRA president Carolyn Meadows attacked the lawsuit at the time, calling it “a baseless, premeditated attack on our organisation and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend.”

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is generally filed by corporations to give them more time to reorganise their debts and assets.

Biden Says He Will Defeat Our Constitutional Right to Bear Arms While in Office

First our first amendment rights – free speech – have been crushed. Now, the second amendment is in the crosshairs. But rest assured, Beijing Biden and his cadre of D-bag leadership will be well-protected by armed guards.

Biden Says He Will ‘Defeat the NRA’ While in Office

By Zachary Stieber, The Epcoh Times, January 10, 2021:

President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 8 promised to “defeat” the National Rifle Association while he’s in office.

Biden’s official Twitter account was responding to former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was among 14 people wounded in a shooting rampage by Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson in 2011; six people died in the attack. Giffords had recounted how her life and community “changed forever.”

“But the attack did not break me—or the people I represented in Congress. We came together, turned pain into purpose, and found hope in each other,” she wrote, adding that she continues to work to “achieve a safer America.”

Biden responded, saying: “Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others. I pledge to continue to work with you—and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country—to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”

The NRA, which has more than 5 million members, seeks to protect and educate people about their Second Amendment rights.

While the association didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Biden’s post, its lobbying arm recently published an article that says Biden would “begin a concerted attack on the rights of American gun owners” after being inaugurated.

“We must be ready for the onslaught,” the post reads, adding that a Biden administration, if officials get their way, “will ban and confiscate the most-commonly-owned rifle in the United States” and “will arbitrarily limit the number of guns that can be bought per month,” among other measures.

Biden’s website says he has a plan to end “our gun violence epidemic” and boasts that he has taken on the NRA twice and won, referring to his help passing the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act in 1993 and in passing a 10-year ban on some weapons and magazines the following year.

“As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again,” the site states.

Some of the proposals include banning the manufacture and sale of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, restricting the number of guns one person may buy per month to one, and prohibiting people convicted of hate crimes from owning guns.

Guns Prevent Thousands of Crimes Every Day, Research Shows

How many lives are actually saved by gun ownership?


It never fails. A split-second after a mass shooting occurs, grandstanders and ideologues issue statements demanding new gun controls—even if the laws already on the books failed or the laws they want would have made no difference. Case in point: the tragic incidents in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, in early August 2019.

The message is clear: Guns cause violence. Tax them, take them, ban them, regulate them. Do something, maybe anything! Such knee-jerk, emotional responses are dangerous, writes Charles W. Cooke in National Review, “for when a nation sets up a direct pipeline between its emotions and its laws, it does not keep its liberty for long.”

Liberty isn’t the only thing likely to be lost when gun laws are passed to appease emotions over reason, evidence, logic, and rights. Lives will most assuredly be lost, too. Lots of them.

This raises a point amplified in another context almost two centuries ago by Frederic Bastiat in his famous essay with a title that sums it up, “That Which is Seen and That Which is Not Seen.”

How many lives are actually saved by gun ownership? This is a supremely important question that the grandstanders and ideologues usually—and conveniently—ignore. It’s a matter that came immediately to my mind when I learned of an incident here in my own town of Newnan, Georgia, a few days ago. The headline in the Newnan Times-Herald read, “Man Hospitalized After Being Shot Outside Bar.”

A little after 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, August 17, police arrived at Fat Boys Bar & Grill to respond to a shooting. A customer had threatened other patrons, prompting the establishment’s security to forcibly remove him. Enraged at being kicked out, he declared he was going to get a gun “and shoot the place up.”

This very angry (and possibly intoxicated) man then busted the window out of a friend’s car in the parking lot, grabbed a .40 caliber handgun from inside the car, and began firing in the air. In the meantime, Ben McCoy, a man who witnessed all of this from inside his own vehicle, happened to have his rifle with him. Before he could use it, he was shot four times by the man wielding the .40 caliber handgun, who then fled into the woods.

Fortunately, despite being hit in the chest, stomach, left arm and right thigh, McCoy is recuperating, and the assailant was quickly apprehended. No one was killed, but the situation would likely have been tragically different if Ben McCoy and his rifle hadn’t distracted the gunman.

Of course, in this particular incident it’s most unfortunate that an innocent man was shot. Don’t lose sight of the fact that his very presence, with a rifle, still prevented what could have been a bloodbath that might have even killed him too. What’s far more common is innocent gun owners using or brandishing a weapon and saving lives without any injuries at all except sometimes for the assailant. I chose this example because it was local and I wanted to express appreciation to Mr. McCoy.

I checked online and found some fascinating numbers. A good website with footnotes and references to authoritative sources is GunFacts.info. There I learned the following:

  • Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 every day. Most often, the gun is never fired, and no blood (including the criminal’s) is shed.
  • Every year, 400,000 life-threatening violent crimes are prevented using firearms.
  • 60 percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they knew the victim was armed. Forty percent of convicted felons admitted that they avoided committing crimes when they thought the victim might be armed.
  • Felons report that they avoid entering houses where people are at home because they fear being shot.
  • Fewer than 1 percent of firearms are used in the commission of a crime.

If you doubt the objectivity of the site above, it’s worth pointing out that the Center for Disease Control, in a report ordered by President Obama in 2012 following the Sandy Hook Massacre, estimated that the number of crimes prevented by guns could be even higher—as many as 3 million annually, or some 8,200 every day.

Another excellent source of information on this topic (and many more current issues) is the Gun Control page at JustFacts.org. (Full disclosure: I serve on the board of directors of JustFacts because I believe in the organization’s objectiveness, accuracy, and integrity.)

In “Defensive Gun Use is More Than Shooting Bad Guys,” James Agresti, founder and president of JustFacts, provided overwhelming evidence from multiple sources showing that defensive gun use is more common and effective than anti-gun fanatics like The New York Times suggest or will admit. Agresti says that “people who use a gun for defense rarely harm (much less kill) criminals. This is because criminals often back off when they discover their targets are armed.”

John Lott, author of the book, “More Guns, Less Crime,” is president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, another outstanding source for info on this subject. He writes:

By 66 percent to 32 percent, economists and criminologists answer that gun-free zones are “more likely to attract criminals than they are to deter them.” A 60 percent to 40 percent margin thinks that guns in the home do not increase suicides. And a 62 percent to 35 percent spread says that guns are used in self-defense to stop crime more often than in the commission of crime.

This may explain why even The New York Times hasn’t yet put a billboard up by its offices that screams, “This is a Gun-Free Zone. There are No Guns Here.”

If we can just confiscate the estimated 350 million guns in the country, you might ask, then won’t we eliminate the offensive use of firearms, so we won’t need any of those many defensive uses? Good luck with that. Is there any reason to believe that such a war on guns would be any more successful than the government’s war on drugs? Even a fifth-grader could tell you that it would be largely the innocent who would be disarmed. Criminals would have no problem keeping their guns or getting replacements on a thriving black market.

So that leaves me with gratitude for the Ben McCoys of the world, the law-abiding gun owners who are every bit as important as the cops—and likely even more so—in the effort to keep the innocent safe and sound.

Barrett MRAD: One of the Best Precision Rifles on the Market

In 2009, the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) was looking for a new rifle through its Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) competition. Barrett developed and entered its Multi-Role Adaptive Design (MRAD) sniper rifle into the contest. They lost the bid that year, but the MRAD was already making waves and Barrett kept improving its new rifle.

Then in 2019,the Department of Defense (DoD) selected the MRAD as its newest Advanced Sniper Rifle. Barrett got their contract, but in truth, gun enthusiasts are the real winners here. Let’s see what convinced Uncle Sam that this would be a great gun for our folks in uniform.

For starters, there’s the quality and thought Barrett put into the design of the MRAD. The monolithic upper receiver is machined from 7000-series aluminum. The upper features a full-length Picatinny rail with a special taper for long-distance precision.

And if the Picatinny top rail isn’t enough? The MRAD’s handguard also has mounting slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions for long range optics or other essential accessories. Fans of even more accessories will like the rail that’s located on the buttstock, perfect for a monopod.

The bolt action of the MRAD is also both interesting and utilitarian. The bolt moves through an enclosed, self-lubricating polymer guide. This dust cover helps the action move smoothly. It also helps keep the elements outside of the gun from getting into it.

And though the “M” in MRAD stands for “Multi”, the name of this gun’s game is “Modularity”. More specifically, this single rifle has at least eight different caliber options. These calibers include .338 Lapua Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum, .308 Winchester, and more. And that’s only the beginning of how customizable the MRAD can be.

First of all, not all caliber-changing rifles are created equal. The MRAD is great because switching calibers is actually easy. Just loosen two Torx screws, remove and swap barrels, change out the bolt, and retighten the screws. No headspace checks or gauges necessary!

What’s more, each component of this gun is easy to take apart and swap out if necessary. The upper receiver breaks from the lower, shotgun-style. This allows for easy cleaning or maintenance, though you can also fully remove the upper if you’d like.

The trigger assembly takes a modular approach, too. It’s simple to remove the entire trigger assembly — no tools needed. From there, a new or different trigger “cassette” can take its place. Or you can adjust the pull weight of the trigger and pop the cassette back in and you’re good to go.

The MRAD uses 10-round, double stacked magazines. And like using the MRAD overall, magazine changes are simple and easy. The mag release is partly cut away and has an

ambidextrous paddle-style release. This allows you to switch magazines without changing your firing grip.

The pistol grips and safety selector are both of the familiar AR-style. And like the mag release, the safety is also ambidextrous. It’s quick and easy to swap the selector from one side of the rifle to the other. (No worries if you’re a leftie with this gun!).

Similarly, the folding buttstock accommodates individual shooters’ needs. It requires no tools to adjust the length-of-pull or the cheek piece. A single button push allows the stock to fold. This reduces the gun’s overall length from about 47 inches to around 40 inches.

At about 11-14+ pounds (depending on configuration), this is a heavy rifle. Some liken it to a ship’s anchor, which sounds none-too-fun to carry around. But for long-distance, precision shots, that’s what you need. And Barrett brings quality along with the weight of the MRAD sniper rifle.

The groupings for this gun can range from around 1 MOA to less than .5 MOA, depending on the shooter. In other words, the MRAD is so accurate that the results lie more squarely on the shooter rather than the gun. Additionally, there are no complaints to be had about the reliability of the MRAD.

That said, some do find the MRAD’s recoil abrasive. However, this gun is well-built so that the recoil you feel at least lands properly. It is not unreasonable for the power of this gun. In fact, the only true disadvantage to the MRAD is its price tag, which runs around $6000.

So should you consider buying an MRAD for yourself? The truth is that you may not need such a high-powered, high-end sniper rifle as a casual shooter. But if you have the cash to spare and you’re in LE or you’re a competition shooter? Then maybe an MRAD would be an appropriate rifle to call your own.

There’s no two ways about it: Barrett’s MRAD sniper rifle is a great precision gun. It’s reliable, it’s customizable, and you can easily tear it down and even change its caliber. It may be a little heavy and more than a little pricey. But for the quality, the accuracy, and its ease-of-use, it is well worth it.

The U.S. Army Adopted the Sig Sauer P320. Can This Gun Protect Your Home?

The Sig Sauer P320 Compact is a modular-framed, striker-fired pistol designed for versatility and customization. It’s got a lot of interesting features and supports the Sig Sauer reputation for reliable and quality firearms. But is it worth buying? Keep reading to find out.

Accuracy

This gun is very accurate. Right out of the box, the P320 averages 1.5-inch groupings at anywhere from 7 to 25 yards, slow-fire. There is very little recoil, which is surprising considering it can feel a little top-heavy until you get used to it. You may have to allow yourself some time to adjust to the 6’oclock hold as well, especially if you are used to shooting with a more angled grip, like with a Glock. The photoluminescent sights provide an accurate sight picture and allow for precise shooting in low-light situations. The RX model also comes with a great red dot optic, Sig’s Romeo 1. Speaking of romeo, you can upgrade your Ruger 10/22 with this optic.

Reliability

The Sig P320 is amazingly reliable. After over 500 rounds and a wide variety of ammo — including Hornady TAP, Winchester White Box, and Blazer Brass FMJ — there were no misfires or jams. Testing out all the frames with hollow and plink ammo has proven you can count on this gun to fire consistently and without issue.

Handling

I really like how the P320 handles. It’s lightweight, if a little top-heavy, and is easy to maneuver between targets. The RX Carry model is great for concealed carry, and the potential for customization on this pistol means it can be customized for almost every shooter’s needs. The P320 is a technically a chassis gun with a series of interchangeable grip frames or a Sig X-change kit. You can change out the caliber, barrel, grip, and slide for the entire series — excluding the .45 ACP — to fit your needs and specifications. So, if you don’t like the grip, or decide you want a to try out another caliber, the P320 provides an alternative to buying a completely different gun.

Even with all the customizations available, the P320 remains fairly simple in its design. The magazine release is reversible, the slide lock and disassembly lever are easy to use and there isn’t an external safety.

Trigger

The trigger seems to be the only point of contention for the Sig P320. As far as I’m concerned, it’s just going to come down to preference. The trigger on the P320 is a wide, single-action trigger that breaks cleanly at around 5.5 pounds with a smooth reset. There’s no stacking and some overtravel that could affect accuracy, so you may have to make some adjustments if the trigger isn’t a fit for you.

Magazine & Reloading

Sig Sauer packages these guns with two 15-round for the compact model and 17-round mags for the carry. These steel mags are easy to load and smoothly drop free when released. Another great thing about the P320 is that its magazines are exchangeable with the P250.

Length & Weight

The P320 is only 7.2-inches in overall length, 5.3 inches tall, and 28 oz when loaded. It’s small, compact, and has a sleek design. No matter your application, this gun won’t weigh you down.

Recoil Management

The high, vertical grip, high bore axis, and undercut trigger guard all contribute to excellent recoil management in the P320. With the custom grip models available, there’s no reason you should have trouble keeping an accurate sight picture between shots or have the gun jerk out of your grip.

Price

The P320 runs for about $500 retail, depending on the model. The X-Change kits sell from Sig Sauer for around $450 and the grip frames for about $45.

My Verdict?

The Sig Sauer P320 Compact is a great gun for anything from concealed carry to competition shooting. It’s accurate, reliable, and primed for customization. If you are looking for a unique and dependable handgun, you can’t go wrong with the P320.

Why the Ruger LCP is a Favorite Among Women

While anyone of any size is basically capable of shooting any gun, every gun isn’t a perfect fit for everyone. The average firearm is designed for the average size hands of a man. This means that many people on either side of average can be left uncomfortable with many firearms, with many women finding themselves on the smaller side of average in this case.

Some firearms cater very well to the specific needs of women, and the Ruger LCP is one of those.

Size and Features

Many women need a gun that is small and capable, and the Ruger LCP does a great job of being firearm that is smaller while still performing well.

The gun is light in weight and recoil. Lighter handguns are simply easier to maneuver and fire for many.

Recoil is very important for women to consider. A handgun with a little too much recoil can affect the wrists making shooting an unpleasant experience. Perhaps more importantly, repeatedly shooting a handgun with too much recoil can cause repetitive strain injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome being the most notable of these. Anyone who has ever experienced the pain and frustration that comes from nerve and tendon injuries can attest to how serious they can be. The light recoil of the LCP makes it a perfect fit for most women.

Their grips add to their comfort. Designers often have trouble designing grips for small handguns. It is understandable, considering they simply have less space to work with, but that doesn’t make an uncomfortable gun comfortable. Ruger also knocked this out of the park with the LCP. The grip has a beavertail that blends in with the frame and slide. This is a smart way to make use of the small space. They essentially repurposed something that was going to be taking up space either way. The grip is lightly beveled in parts to make it stick to one’s hand easier.

The LCP is also a simple weapon to disassemble. This makes it a great gun for experienced shooters and new shooters alike. Cleaning and maintaining weapons are important parts of gun ownership and having a handgun that is simple to disassemble makes learning and getting used to the process of maintaining firearms easy to get in to.

Concealed Carry

The LCP does not just offer a good shooting experience for women; it offers a great weapon for concealed carry.

Marksmanship and protection are the biggest reasons for purchasing firearms. Women in particular often understand how dangerous everyday living can be which makes concealed carry a valuable option.

The gun can be carried in a number of convenient ways. It can be carried in traditional waistband holsters like other handguns. It is small enough that it offers more versatility than that though, and it isn’t just small. It’s incredibly slim. This makes it ideal for carrying in less conventional ways.

One common way of carrying it is to simply to keep it in a handbag or purse. It fits neatly into a small space without cluttering it up, weighing one down, or being noticeable. Some like to carry it in their pocket. Specific pocket holsters are made that allow them to be drawn with ease from the pocket. Pocket holsters can be a good way to store the LCP in a purse as well.

The .380 rounds it fires are also sufficient for self-defense. They don’t have the stopping power of more powerful rounds like the .40, .45, or even 9mm. However, they still carry enough stopping power to put someone down and protect oneself. You generally have to make a tradeoff for smaller rounds when you want a more compact handgun, but the tradeoff is worth it in this case. A similarly worth it tradeoff comes in the form of the magazine. The Ruger LCP is so slim that it basically has to use a single stack magazine. It holds 6 rounds, and it can of course be carried with 1 in the chamber, bringing its capacity to 6+1. Like with stopping power, this is a place where you are sacrificing a bit of magazine size to get a handgun this compact. The good thing is that 7 rounds will probably be sufficient in self-defense scenarios.

Lastly, for anyone looking to purchase a firearm for self-defense, sharpening your skills will be crucial. You really want to know that you are proficient with your handgun. This means taking it to the range and practicing. Having someone to teach new shooters is important as well. Some people may prefer learning from a gun owner they are already close to, and some will prefer either one-on-one or group instruction from a professional.

The firearms world has been called a “boys club” in the past, so you may feel comfortable training and shooting with other women. You’ll have to see what is available in your area, but there will likely be groups of women you could find to embark on your firearms journey with.

The ATF Has Become a Rogue Agency That Turns Lawful Gun Owners Into Felons

Over and over again, innocent people unwittingly find themselves in the ATF’s crosshairs.


What if government agents could, by declaration, make you into a criminal? What if, without legislative change, bureaucrats could decide that what was legal yesterday is a felony today? What if we were governed not by law, but by arbitrary statements telling us what we may or may not do?

Unfortunately, those questions are not merely hypothetical—thanks to recent abuses of power by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), millions of American gun owners are facing them head-on. Even if you hate guns, you should be deeply concerned by the arbitrary power wielded by the ATF against your fellow Americans. If an unchecked executive agency can run roughshod over any of our rights with impunity, all of our rights are in danger.

Recently, the firearms manufacturer Q, LLC shared disturbing news with its customers: the ATF had declared the delightfully-named and popular “Honey Badger” pistol to be a “short-barreled rifle” (SBR). This determination subjects the firearm to special restrictions under the National Firearms Act (NFA). As a consequence of the ATF’s decision, customers who had purchased the Honey Badger have suddenly found themselves in felonious possession of a now-illegal firearm that they had legally acquired and legally owned.

The ATF’s determination is arbitrary. It is inconsistent with both federal law and prior ATF statements. Substantially similar firearms continue to be sold legally, as they have been for years. Instead of explaining what makes the Honey Badger different from those firearms, the ATF vaguely alluded to “objective design features,” offering no further explanation as to what those features are or why they lead the ATF to determine that the Honey Badger is an SBR.

This is far from the first time that the ATF has issued a declaration that turns innocent people into criminals — other examples abound. As I explained in Felony by Fiat:

In 2015, the ATF decided that the physical action of holding a pistol equipped with an ATF-approved brace to one’s shoulder was equivalent to creating an illegal short-barreled firearm. That is to say, you could pick up your perfectly legal pistol (which is not otherwise subject to the NFA’s minimum barrel length restrictions) and unwittingly commit a felony by virtue of the way you held it. That guidance directly contradicted a 2014 ATF letter that said just the opposite. In 2017, new guidance was issued which appears to sanction the shouldering of a braced pistol so long as such use is ‘incidental, sporadic, or situational’ — whatever that means.

And:

Just last year, the ATF issued new measurement guidelines that transformed some conventionally legal pistols into presumptively illegal firearms under the NFA’s ‘any other weapon’ (AOW) classification, depending on how those pistols had been configured and accessorized.

In 2018, at President Trump’s direction, the ATF created rules banning the possession of bump stocks, devices which use a gun’s recoil to facilitate rapid operation of the trigger.

As Reason’s Jacob Sullum noted, the ATF’s regulatory move made “owners of ‘bump-stock-type devices’…felons, subject to a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.”

Join us in preserving the principles of economic freedom and individual liberty for the rising generation

The bump stock ban was more prominent than other instances of the ATF’s lawless policymaking. Nonetheless, the ban was met with little outcry or appreciation of its implications.

But, as you can see from the other cases detailed here, the ATF’s ban on bump stocks was not an aberration: it was just one of countless regulatory changes, before and since, that have turned lawful gun owners into criminals by executive fiat.

The ATF is not a lawmaking body—or, at least, it is not supposed to be. It is an executive agency tasked with enforcing laws passed by Congress.

The ATF is not empowered to create policy of its own accord, and it’s certainly not empowered to turn law-abiding citizens into criminals, but that’s exactly what it has been doing. Sadly, there’s no hyperbole in the observation that millions of legal gun owners must wonder: Will I wake up tomorrow to find that I’ve been declared a felon?

The rule of law is a fundamental value of a free society. We are not to be governed by edict, but only by laws that are consistent with the Constitution and created according to its provisions. The purpose of government is to protect us from arbitrary and illegitimate force, and to secure our rights—not to be the agent of their destruction.

The ATF itself has come to embody the exercise of arbitrary and illegitimate power. Such a perversion of government’s purpose must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. No matter how much our opinions about gun control laws diverge, we should be united in rejecting executive agencies’ usurpations of sovereignty.
