Which would you take, (as your primary training gun) to Gunsite; Your smaller concealable CCW gun, or.... a sturdy workhorse gun. In other words, is it better to train with what you carry, or train correctly with a standard and adapt to your own carry. Beretta PX4sc, or 92FS.
Don't you need to bring a primary and a backup to such events?
Nothing unreal exists
Bring them both..Definitely bring you EDC.
You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
Assuming you absorb what you're taught, you should be able to apply those lessons to your backup gun once you're home.
Ideally, bring your primary sidearm and a backup in the same caliber, just in case the primary chokes.

If I had to choose purely on the merits of the gun, the 92 wins hands down. But you do need to bring both.

Most guns get a heavy workout at such shooting schools. You should always bring at least two guns in case one breaks or malfunctions to the point where it needs armory work. That way you have one of your own guns to finish the class with without having to rent one you'll never be using again.
Logic dictates you should be bringing your primary and back up weapons if those are going to be the ones you are relying on to save your life.
For one thing, you'll want to know your primary and back up's will withstand the amount of constant shooting they will be subjected to during the course.
