“Which gun should I choose?” It’s a common question at just about any gun counter, range, or training class. The answer involves more consideration than simply which gun feels good in the hand.
Whether you’re looking to purchase a defensive handgun for the first time or are replacing the one you have, choosing “the right” defensive handgun deserves serious consideration.
That’s why this Class was created: To provide a thorough examination of how various handgun types operate, and to demonstrate how the mechanisms and physical characteristics of each type enhance or impede your ability to use the firearm efficiently and effectively in the process of stopping a threat.
Your instructor is PDN Executive Director, Rob Pincus. Backed by his decades-long experience with thousands of students on the range, using all types of firearm makes, models, and calibers, as well as his own experience training with various gun types, Rob applies three key criteria to the process of selecting a defensive handgun.
Those criteria involve reliability, efficiency, and relative complexity. With these criteria in mind, Rob goes into great detail to demonstrate each of the major firearm types, including revolver and semi-automatic handguns, as well as a variety of makes, models, and calibers.
A thorough understanding of the differences in the design and physical characteristics of different handguns, and how those characteristics affect your ability to use your gun in a defensive situation, is key to choosing the right gun for your personal defense.
This Class will help you zero-in on the type of handgun that is best aligned with your defensive use and circumstances. After completing the class, you’ll be prepared to hit the range and see which ones “fit” you best, saving you time and money in the process.
In addition to the video presentation, this class includes a printable download, summarizing the various handgun types discussed as well as rankings of each model according to the criteria presented in the class.
