Idaho Concealed Carry is tops with customers at Center Target Sports. And the gun shop/range's most popular handgun from earlier this year is among one of the newest on the market.

The Glock 42 has been moving like hotcakes, with the .380 Auto selling for $449.

Recently, the store got in 16 of the Glocks and sold all of them in under two days!

Owner Ed Santos also pointed to Crimson Trace laser grips as another hot item. Santos estimates that 40 percent of the new carry guns he sells leave the store with a laser grip. Night sights for carry handguns are moving well, too.

“CCW holders are buying higher-quality retention holsters,” Santos notes. “We are finally getting away from the cheaper, less-secure alternatives and people are now spending $75 to $100 on a CCW holster.”
