Some additional info;

NRA – Defensive Pistol
· The NRA’s guidelines for this course allow the use of any type of revolver or semi-automatic. However, I recommend that you use a center fire semi-automatic, 9 mm caliber or greater, or a center fire double action revolver. 38sp caliber or greater.
· A single-action semi-automatic, such as a variant of the M1911 or Browning High Power, carried with the hammer back, safety on, and a round in the chamber is best suited to someone who is extremely experienced with this type of handgun. (Allowed by NRA rules, but not recommended by me.)
· Single-action revolver not permitted.
· The shooting exercises call for approximately 135 rounds, but only hits count.
· Expect to fire between 200 and 250.
· Factory ammunition only, please.
Magazines or Speed Loaders
· Most of the shooting exercises require you to reload at least once.
· Bring two or three magazines or speed loaders.
Holster or holster purse
· Strong-side concealment-style hip (belt) with an appropriate belt or in-the pants holster.
· Competition holsters not permitted.
· Holsters with or without safety straps are permitted.
· Holsters without safety straps must be capable of holding the handgun securely during movements that occur during the range exercises.
· Holsters must prevent the trigger finger from entering the trigger guard.
· High-quality leather or synthetic holsters molded to the exact gun shape recommended.
Concealment garment
· Most of the shooting exercises start with a loaded handgun in a holster under a concealment garment.
· Bring a garment you can be sweep aside. Typically, this is a jacket or vest open in front. Pull-up cover garments not permitted.
Ear protection [preferably electronic), eye protection, and a “baseball style” cap.

Bring lunch and snacks. The clubhouse has a kitchen with a microwave stove and refrigerator.)
