No matter what I have already said, the practicalities of the thing quickly becomes the overriding consideration, I think. While it may be peachy keen to bring your pistol along on your daily travels and take a few shots now and then, doing something like that has probably gone the way of going to the city dump and shooting rats.
So you go to the range. Even then you can't have it your own way all the time. There may be a time limit if there's a crowd waiting to shoot. You may not be able to do any practice drawing from the holster and shooting. You may not be able to do rapid fire. And there may even be a limitation on the ammunition you can use: no .30 carbine handguns or something like that. So you work with what you can do and go from there.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
