For those trying to learn basic skills for concealed carry and later on maintaining those skills, a .22-caliber pistol like this Sig Sauer provides a good platform.

According to the most recent update from the Crime Prevention Research Center, an estimated 18.66 million citizens are now licensed to carry across the United States. As noted by CPRC founder John Lott, that number may be on the light side because 16 states don’t require a permit or license to carry.

More people are joining those ranks every week, with various skill levels. In the years I was most active as a firearms instructor, I found that the greatest mistake too many people make is buying the hottest new whizbang handgun in a caliber they aren’t ready to handle. In the process, they develop a lot of bad habits and, in some cases, are discouraged from gun ownership altogether.

It’s like turning a 12-year-old loose with a .30-06 that’s got a steel buttplate in preparation for his first deer hunt. Typically, that doesn’t work out well. Never allow someone to pressure you into firing a full-house magnum revolver or big-bore semi-auto, and don’t be the person applying the pressure.
