It is very important to regularly train with your concealed carry firearm. Firearms training will help you be more proficient with your gun if you are forced to defend yourself.
Concealed Carry Considerations
Some important topics to consider is reliability of the gun and the caliber. A gun that is not reliable is not a good choice for concealed carry.
There is a lot of debate about the best caliber handgun for concealed carry. Comparisons between the various handgun calibers and the performance of different ammunition are everywhere.
Ask yourself a few simple questions before making your decision. The question is this, “which caliber do you shoot the best?” The recoil of some handguns is much greater than others. However, a bigger caliber gun is not always your best choice. Hitting your target with a small caliber handgun is better than missing with a large caliber gun.
Managing recoil and firing accurate follow-up shots is a very important and is part of concealed carry. We are morally and legally responsible for every round we fire. Hitting our target can be the difference between stopping the threat and harming an innocent bystander.
Take the time to shoot the various calibers. Shoot defensive ammunition in the gun you carry and learn about the type of firearm, ammunition caliber and way you should carry then. You will learn more then you would by reading articles about ballistic performance.
