    I could have qualified with a .22...if I had one. But, I preferred to take the class with what I planned to carry. But, to each their own...

    I took my course at the Sig-Sauer academy in Exeter, NH so it was one of their Sigs. The 250 I think, they were marketing that gun heavily at the time.

    I used a Kahr K9 with CT grips that I borrowed from a friend. It wasn't mine then, nor is it now, so I do not stil carry it. I didn't have a gun at the time I took the course, that was younger than I am, and in fact most of mine date to Korean War or before, and I didn't have a carry holster for any of them that didn't have a flap and need a webbing belt. haha No way to "draw and fire" with those old things from concealment, so I used the friend's Kahr and an IWB kydex holster for it.

    My carry gun now is a Walther PPQ.

    My DD214 was enough to get me a permit here in Florida. I did sign up for a defensive pistol class the day after my permit arrived and used my G19 which I still have.

    Glock 17. Traded it shortly after. I carry J frames pretty much exclusively.

    Like Luis50, I used my DD214, and I have also taken the following:
    NRA Home safety course
    NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course
    NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home Course

    A Beretta 92G/SD...kind of a heavy sucker...eventually traded it off.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    G19, borrowed it from a friend, and no. Have been using a Kimber Pro Raptor but changed to a G17 and getting ready to change again to a G19.

    I had just bought it a few weeks before the course and decided to use it.
    My heroes are Veterans and My Father (who was a veteran).

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.

    Used to use a Ruger P95D for LEOSA quals in WV. Their course of fire was best run with 4 magazines. Although I carried it a while I generally went back to a GI 45. Used a Bersa ThunderPro .40 S&W for the NC CCW class & use it for my EDC these days. I like the way it points and that it is DA/SA.

    I plan on using my M&P Compact 9mm to take the course. I will also use this for CC until I get my Shield.
    1. The One I plan on carrying the most.
    2. Yes.
    I almost never sell a gun. It's a huge waste of money to do so. Thus I never buy one unless I know I can afford to keep it. May it stay like that.........

    I took the course almost four years ago and most will remember ammo was really scarce at that time.

    The course I chose offered free use of their guns and ammo so I ended up with an S&W wheel gun. Don't
    remember the mod # but it was sweet. Scored 100 on the range test, shouldn't get a swelled head cause
    all it meant was I kept 50 rounds in the man sized target. Oh, .38 Sp with a four inch barrel very similar to
    my DW .357.

    No rimfires allowed although several showed up but they couldn't use them.
