  • We recommend using a handgun appropriate for self-defense chambered in a minimum caliber of 9mm/.38 caliber.

    • We do not recommend the use of “Pocket Pistols” which are a very small handgun usually in .25, .32, or .380 calibers.  Their small size and complexity will greatly increase the difficulty level of learning new techniques and could cause increased frustration on the part of the student..
