FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which handgun is best for self-defense?
While this is easily the top two most common questions in the self defense industry ("what caliber is best?" is the other), it is often the most argued and contentious among instructors. As debatable as “Which is the best truck?” the answers are always based on the personal experience and bias of the instructor. Brand aside, at the end of the day the question is really “What’s the best handgun for you?” and the answer is “The biggest handgun that you can shoot comfortably and carry daily”. When it comes to concealed carry, the mouse gun on your person is better than the cannon in your safe and you must be able to manipulate the handgun, load and unload it, and fire it effectively. Those factors are most often determined by your size, strength and physical abilities.
What caliber handgun is best for self-defense?
It is certainly true that big bullets make big holes. Unfortunately, bigger bullets often mean less ammunition capacity as well as bigger guns which are most often left at home and not carried due to their weight and lack of concealability. The smaller calibers typically mean smaller, more concealable firearms or, conversely, larger firearms with enhanced capacity over the bigger calibers. Luckily we live in the Twenty First Century and ammunition technology has progressed leaps and bounds over the last 20 years. As a result, the industry is finding that smaller calibers (38 Special, .380, 9mm) previously considered anemic in power by the Old Guard gun gurus, are offering adequate penetration and expansion for self-defense use. Understanding that, at the end of the day, it’s about shot placement, modern hollow-points designed for self-defense and manufactured by companies like Federal, Hornady, Winchester, and Remington are leveling the playing field when it comes to the smaller calibers. All that being said, carry the largest caliber that you can practice with comfortably, shoot accurately, and carry daily.
Which states can I carry in once I have my Oklahoma Self Defense Act carry permit?
The states listed below have honored Oklahoma's handgun permits, however; each state regulates firearms law differently and there is no obligation for one state to inform another of any changes to its law; therefore, we suggest that you verify this information prior to travel. In an effort to make this process more convenient, links for each of these states have been provided for you to check the status of reciprocity and proper procedure with each state through which you may be traveling prior to your departure.
