Fairfax, VA -( The December issue of Shooting Illustrated, on newsstands now, features LMT’s exciting new SLK8, born in battle and designed to excel on the 3-gun circuit.

While reading trace won’t come into play at defensive distances and a red-dot sight isn’t as dependent on cant as a riflescope, the basics—like steadying your hand and fully testing your equipment—are essential whether your range is 10 yards or 1,000.

It’s doubtful a 16-inch carbine would be anyone’s first choice at 1,000 yards, but for shooting at lesser distance in more restrictive locales, the Ares Defense SCR could be quite an attractive choice. With a fixed, conventional stock that draws on the Remington 1100 for inspiration (and bolt design), this rifle accepts standard AR-15-pattern upper receivers while remaining legal in states that restrict Second Amendment rights. Read how this “duck-billed platypus of rifles” performed in our testing.

Whether you’re shooting at long range, participating in 3-gun or simply practicing your basics, finding your “Zen of shooting” will improve your performance. Clearing your mind of pre-conceived notions on recoil and anticipation will enhance your shooting, as we free ourselves of flinches and focus solely on making the right shot.
