    Check the instructors credentials. I meant an individual at a shooting facility where I am a land share owner. Occasionally he conducted training (Individual and or Group) at the previously mentioned facility. Since he more or less scheduled the designated training bay on a regular basis I observed his instructional methodology thus training. We had conversations now and then. He eluded too, that he conducted training at MCB-Camp Lejeune. That proved to be incorrect, he may have taught in the vicinity and or adjacent to but not on the base. If it were I, I'd check out the trainer's credentials.

    I believe it’s possible , even probable that some who carry a smaller gun have an over inflated idea of their capabilities with it.

    Just another angle for thought....
    This is definitely something to consider. Being that my 9mm subcompact is the only handgun I own, I have obviously tried to work to a level of proficiency with it that I feel pretty decent about. When I go out shooting with friends and shoot a full-size in the same caliber, or use a full-size pick-up gun at IDPA, I am always shocked at how much easier it is to shoot accurately (and quickly).

    If I was really into the "gaming" aspect of IDPA, I would definitely shoot a full-size in SSP. For me it's only a guess, of course, but I would think that this "ease of use" would translate well to a defensive gun use.

    Cal44, I did some searching for a respected instructor who offers pistol training in NorCal that you may or may not find right for you... His name is Mike Pannone, and he's a former Recon Marine who then reenlisted in the Army, and earned SF/Green Beret, and eventually served in Delta. He's a Master in USPSA divisions, and also worked as a security contractor overseas. Experience and skills are listed in his bio on the home page.

    The two day course he's offering near you is a blend of Advanced Pistol on day 1, and Covert Carry on day 2. Minimum caliber is 9x19, and you'd need 1500 rounds for the two days.

    If I find any one to two day classes in NorCal from other professionals, I'll post links.

    I used my Glock 26 for three different classes. I did not feel handicapped. Is nice to have plenty of mags however.

    I took a defensive pistol class and used a 1911 - no issues. In fact, in the beginning of the class the instructor asked everyone what their mag capacity was, and he tailored the exercises to the smallest mag capacity in the class.

    I've been thinking of taking it again with a revolver.

    ask whoever teaches the class. Some classes use drills that require a spefic amount of ammo in the magazine to complete the drill effectively.

    I've always taken whatever gun was in my carry holster, plus a couple spares. The past two years, that has been a .45 Shield. I do more mag changes than most others. Other than that, no issues.
