Choosing The Right Handgun

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 0

There are so many different handguns on the market that it is hard to know which one is the gun that is easiest to handle. There is a choice of revolvers as well as semi-automatic handguns. In the end, the best gun for you is the one that lets you shoot the best.

There is a litany of information about which gun is the best. Try holding them and see how they fit into your hand. Ask yourself, as you hold the gun, whether it fits comfortably into your hand so that you don’t have to shift it around when pulling the trigger. Think about its weight. Some people prefer lighter handguns. Also, think about how you will carry this gun. Will you carry it directly on your body or in some container that is attached but not directly to your body, like a fanny pack.

Is There A Gender Difference When It Comes To Gun Size?

If a large handgun feels comfortable in a woman’s hand, then there should be no problem with her having a higher caliber gun. If a man loves his little .22, this does not make him any less of a man. CHL Classes in Austin, TX want you to bring you own gun to your training session. For that reason, it is important that you at least practice holding it before you buy it. You want to pass your training and a gun that does not feel just right in your hand may make you miss the target too many times, resulting in failing the class. CHL Classes in Austin, TX may give you a make-up session after the class to redeem yourself, but it is best to be prepared before firing at the shooting range.

What Is Important In Choosing Your Gun?

CHL Classes in Austin, TX will teach you that there are several things that are very important when looking for a handgun with a good fit. Size and weight are the first things you will notice and evaluate. What kind of gun you prefer is another thing. A sleek semi-automatic will have a longer barrel than a S & W revolver, thus giving you better aim. This is especially important if you shoot in competitions. Longer barrels give you better aim. The shorter barrels are easier to stow away and carry than the longer ones. Much of choosing a handgun will be your own preference. Just be sure that it feels comfortable in your hand and the recoil is not too limiting when getting ready for the next shot.

What Kind Of Gun Should You Bring To The Concealed Handgun Class?

You bring whatever kind of gun you have the best success with to the class as well as the ammunition to fit it. There is one caveat, however. If you complete your training class with a revolver, you will be licensed only for carrying a revolver. If you bring a semi-automatic pistol, you will be qualified to carry both, a semi-automatic or a revolver.
