We always get questions on firearm selection.  Will this or that gun work, etc? A handgun that you can get a full two hand thumbs forward grip on is better to learn shooting skills. You can always transition to a smaller carry gun once you have the skills. We have found that students tend to fight a small gun too much and not grasp the concepts of the exercises.

  • Ammunition - 200 rounds (you can shoot more)

  • Extra Magazines - 2 to 3 if your magazine holds 10 or more, 3 to 5 if your magazines hold less than 10 rounds.
