Preparing and practicing with a new handgun is essential for any new firearm owner. For me personally, this could mean a lot of things from adding and learning new sights, how new grips feel, adjusting the trigger pull, and of course, spending time shooting with it. It’s all a process that takes time however, it’s a fun and enjoyable journey.
Step 1: Clean and Lubricate the Handgun
Before you start to practice and literally begin the break-in process, I suggest you make sure your handgun is clean and lubricated. This is especially important for new handguns because they may have excess oil, grease, or other residues from the manufacturing process. Use a cleaning kit to thoroughly clean the gun and apply a light coat of lubricant to all moving parts. I find this process very enjoyable and a great way to get used to the new handgun and how it feels in my hands(I also find myself daydreaming about upcoming hunts I may be able to do with that gun as well).
Step 2: Purchase the Right Ammunition
When learning about any new firearm, it’s important to use the right ammunition. I suggest doing some research to see what various manufacturers are saying as well as other shooters and hunters. Finding the right ammo often takes time to ensure you know what will perform the best. Shooting and practicing allows you to see what ammunition gives you the best groups and patterns. This process allows you to choose the best ammo for the game you’re hunting.
Step 3: Shoot the Gun
I suggest you begin by firing a few rounds at a time, gradually increasing the number of rounds as you go. This allows you to be more comfortable with how the handgun is shooting and how you’re shooting with it. Start at 5-10 yards and slowly work out to longer distances as you become more comfortable.
I also think spending time shooting in a variety of positions that you’ll encounter when hunting, is another key aspect to learning about a new handgun.
When you do this, you’re building muscle memory so that at the moment of truth when hunting ,everything will not be forced but very comfortable to you and as second nature as it can be.
Step 4: Clean and Inspect the Handgun
After each shooting session, make sure to clean and inspect your handgun. This helps to ensure that the gun continues to function properly and that any excess dirt or debris is removed from the firearm.
Step 5: Practice, Practice, PRACTICE!
Practicing with a handgun is an essential step for any new firearm owner. It helps to ensure that the gun functions reliably and smoothly, and it also helps to extend the life of the firearm.
By following these simple steps, you can break in your handgun properly and safely. Remember to always follow proper safety procedures when handling firearms and to consult the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific firearm.
And finally, Smith & Wesson has a great video resource with over thirty new educational videos for both new and experienced firearms owners that we highly recommend you watching to improve your firearm knowledge and skillset.

Turkey hunting and deer hunting are two popular activities among avid hunters. It’s not uncommon to find hunters across North America who are as passionate about one as they are the other. By spending time in the woods doing both you can become a better hunter by simply paying attention to what you’re seeing and doing when doing hunting either deer or turkey.
Sharpen Those Woodsmanship Skills
Turkey hunting requires a high level of woodsmanship skills, as hunters need to locate and stalk their prey in a variety of cover. These skills translate directly to deer hunting, as both activities require hunters to navigate through the woods and locate their target animal. By honing your woodsmanship skills through turkey hunting, you’ll be better equipped to navigate the terrain come deer season and you’ll often have a better sense of the locations deer are using in certain seasons.
Scouting and Observation
Turkey hunting also requires scouting and keen observation skills to locate areas where turkeys are active and pay close attention to their behavior patterns. These same skills are essential for deer hunting, as hunters need to scout where deer are active and pay close attention to their movements and behavior patterns. Using your time during turkey season you can also keep an eye for deer sign as well. By honing your scouting and observation skills during turkey season, you’ll be better equipped to find and track deer during the fall hunting season. Often times during turkey season you’ll find rubs you didn’t know about, trails deer have been using as well as other sign that clue you in where deer have been wintering.
One of the most important skills for turkey hunting is the ability to use a call to get those gobblers attention. Turkey hunters use a variety of calls to mimic the sounds of turkeys, to bring them into range. In some instances, hunters will use calls during deer season, as deer can be lured into range use grunt calls, rattling, and doe calls. Turkey calls take time to master. If you practice your calling techniques during turkey season, you can translate that sense of discipline to your deer calls to get that big buck to come in.
Turkey Hunting Helps with Stealth and Patience
Turkey hunting also requires a high level of stealth and patience, as hunters need to remain still and quiet for extended periods while waiting for that Big Tom to come in. Once that Tom comes in, just like buck fever, your heart rate skyrockets and you begin to shake. Practice calming yourself down during these situations and control your breathing to make a good clean shot. These skills are also essential for deer hunting, as deer are notoriously skittish and are easily spooked by sudden movements or loud noises. By practicing patience and developing a stealthy approach during turkey season, you’ll be less likely to catch the eye or a weary buck or skiddish doe.
In conclusion, turkey hunting can be a valuable tool for deer hunters, providing opportunities to hone essential skills such as woodsmanship, stealth and patience, calling techniques, and scouting and observation. By practicing these skills during turkey season, you’ll be better prepared and more effective during the deer season. So, if you’re a deer hunter looking to improve your skills, consider getting out in the woods to go after some turkeys!

When hunting for whitetail or other big game in western states, having the right equipment can essential for a successful trip. One important piece of equipment that many hunters overlook is the spotting scope. These can be a game-changer when locating and tracking game, especially at long distances. But with so many options on the market, how do you choose the best one for your hunting needs? Here are some factors to consider when making your selection.
One of the most important factor to consider when choosing a spotting scope is the magnification. You want to be able to clearly see your target, even at a variety of distances. However, higher magnification doesn’t always equal better performance. A magnification range of 20-60x is a good range to look for, as it allows for a wide range of viewing distances.
Best Objective Lens Size
Another important factor to consider is the size of the objective lens. The larger the lens, the more light it can gather, which will provide a brighter and clearer image, especially during low light hours. However, larger lenses also mean a heavier and bulkier scope. A lens size of 60-80mm is a good range to consider, as it strikes a balance between brightness and portability.
Hunting can be a rugged and demanding activity, so you want a spotting scope that can withstand the elements. Look for a scope that is waterproof, fog proof, and shockproof. Additionally, scopes with rubber armor or other protective coatings will be more resistant to damage.
Size and Weight
While you want a spotting scope that is durable, you also want one that is lightweight and easy to carry. Compact and lightweight is ideal for hunters who will be hiking long distances to their hunting spots. Look for a scope that is less than 2.5 pounds and less than 14 inches long.
Spotting scopes can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. While you don’t necessarily need to spend top dollar to get a quality scope, you do get what you pay for. Higher-end scopes will generally have better optics, better durability, and more features. However, if you’re just starting out or have a limited budget, there are still plenty of good options available in the $300-$500 range.
To wrap up, when choosing a spotting scope for hunting, you want to consider factors such as magnification, objective lens size, durability, size and weight, and price. By finding a scope that balances these factors to fit your specific needs and budget, you’ll be better equipped to locate and track your game, leading to a more successful hunting trip.

“The Havoc is the most comfortable compact crossbow on the market. Period.,” said TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar. “When we launched a compact bow project, we wanted to create a bow that felt good to shooters of all sizes, while implementing our reverse draw technology that allows us to deliver unmatched speed, power, and accuracy. Shoulder it and shoot it – you’ll understand why it redefines the compact crossbow in size, speed, comfort, and noise level.”
The Havoc’s reduction in length to just 26.5” overall is accomplished with the development of TenPoint’s NEW 16-inch -MICRO-TRAC™ barrel and NEW ultra-light, two-piece TECH-TACTICAL™ stock. The fluted aluminum barrel also reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50%, increasing accuracy and ensuring the longest string life in the industry, while the new stock features a tactical styled butt stock, as well as a hollow pocket that houses the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system. In addition, the stock’s butt plate adjusts 1” to provide all shooters the ideal fit and combines with the NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Precision Scope to yield perfect eye level alignment.
The EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope (top) features a variable speed and arrow drop-compensation setting for crossbows that shoot between 300 and 500 FPS.
The NEW EVO-X Marksman Elite Scope, included in the bow package, features a 2-8X, capable of precision downrange accuracy out to 100 yards. The variable speed design is compatible with crossbows shooting up to 500 FPS, the Marksman Elite scope features external Target Turrets for easy adjustment to windage and elevation (one click represents ½” MOA at 100 yards) for unmatched long-range accuracy. The Havoc is also available with the NEW Garmin Xero® X1i Crossbow Scope.
“Our new partnership with Garmin mates the world’s most advanced crossbow with the most advanced crossbow sight on the market,” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO. “You’ve never seen a crossbow package like this before – and like our other ACUslide crossbows it offers silent cocking and safe de-cocking.”
Speed and Power
The Havoc features a patented reverse draw bow assembly that draws the string through the riser, creating a 14-inch power stroke. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight – creating a smoother, quieter shot. The elongated power stroke also keeps the arrow nock engaged with the string before release – this is a critical component in performance, as the longer the nock remains engaged with the string, the more accurate the crossbow will shoot. In addition, this center-mounted riser provides superior balance, eliminating the “nose heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady, increasing the shooters accuracy.
The RX7-Cam™ system rotates an incredible 360-degrees to produce speeds of 440 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow. The crossbow’s revolutionary Vector-Quad™ cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel leading to same-hole downrange accuracy.
The ACUslide, the talk of the 2020 crossbow market, features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow. The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the cocking or de-cocking process. While cocking and de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required – and the handle will stop in place. The 6-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces cocking effort to 5-pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.
TenPoint’s S1 2-stage, zero-creep design features a roller sear system that sets a new standard in high-performance crossbow accuracy.
The Havoc RS440 features the company’s S1 trigger. This 2-stage, zero-creep design features an advanced roller-sear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.
The crossbow weighs just 7.5-pounds (w/o accessories), measures only 26.5-inches (w/o stirrup) in length and shoots up to a supercharged 440 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow.
The Havoc RS440 comes with the new EVO-X CenterPunch 16 carbon arrows. The ultra-accurate 16’ arrows weigh 400-grains and feature 17.5% FOC. Each arrow is inspected for straightness to within .001-inch and each package is weight matched to within 1-grain per arrow.
Decorated in Veil® Alpine camo or Graphite Gray, the Havoc RS440 ships completely assembled and includes a Ready-To-Hunt package.
