    What gun did you take the CHL course with?

    Just curious which gun you guys used for your CHL course, and...

    1. Why?

    2. Do you still have it/use it for CC?

    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.

    I think it was my P228. That just happened to be what I was carrying at the time. I still carry it on a regular basis.

    XD-M 9 Compact, still have it - don't carry it. Love the gun, just on the big side for carry.

    Don't have to qualify here, or in any other state I've had permits in.

    I'd have run my 229 Elite if I would have had to qualify.

    I think in some states you have to "quailify" with the gun you carry. Im glad that aint the case here

    Same here in VA.

    If I had to choose, I'd use my Kimber Solo.

    Custom Browning High Power in .357 sig. Because it's my favorite (and because my wife swiped my G19). Yes/yes. But, luckily I have a bunch of CCW choices.

    I shot a 100% with my Beretta 90-Two 9mm.

    I chose to shoot this gun because 1) it is a full size gun and I shoot very accurately with it, 2) since by law, in Texas anyways, you must shoot factory loaded ammunition, 9mm is among the cheapest, and 3) it is a semi automatic, not a revolver (Texas has two classes of license, SA and NSA, Semi-Automatic allows carry of a semi or a revolver, while NSA Non-Semi-Automatic only allows revolver or derringer carry).

    Since I reload my own ammunition, I usually never have to buy ammo, but because this time I had no choice, 9mm was the cheapest route.

    I carry a Springfield XDS in .45ACP.

    "Why?" Why not? The gun is awesome. In texas if you want to carry a semi-automatic, you have to qualify with a semi-automatic.
    Yes, I still have it and yes I carry it.

    I'm well aware of the revolver/semi-auto stipulation thing here in Texas. Obviously it makes sense to qualify with a semi-auto, even if you plan on CC with a revolver. Better to have the option anyway.

    Since I was using my CC course for the additional reason of having an up to date (current) NRA safety verification, I took several friends (we set up a private class at the range with an excellent NRA instructor) and several models of large caliber revolvers and pistols. Each had to demonstrate proficiency with both a revolver and pistol to pass and each got a certificate stating proficiency in either type of weapon, of the several variations we had of each to work with.

    I used a Glock 22, borrowed the gun from my dad. He still has it, was his last Dept. issued gun. I recall doing well in the course, but it was pretty lame so no biggy there.

    Why I used it? No real reason. It was a good size pistol and I was looking to buy a .40 at the time so it made sense to test drive the G22.

    Springfield 1911-A1, because I shot it well, and already had carried it lots (the previous state didn't require a shooting skill test), and I thought qualifying with my .22 pistol would be, well, cheating.

    Yes, I still have it, but I use other 1911s for carry purposes.

    Va. required a NRA safety course certificate at the time. I used my S&W 4006 which was my carry gun for several years.
    Still have it, and don't carry it much any more. Too heavy.

    In Mi. we don't have to qualify, just show proficiency.

    My Dan Wesson.
    15-2VH.
    Instructor looked at me shooting and said I was cheating somehow.

    Yes I still have it.
    It is not for sale for all the tea in China.
    I carry it around the woods up north looking to shoot coyotes pigs or whatever threatens me at the cabin in the woods.
