Re: Minimum Caliber for Handgun Proficiency Exam

I was never intending to get that far out with my comment. I don't know anyone who carries a pistol ar as anything other than a truck gun. At the same time the gun I qualified with I never had any intention of carrying. Fast forward a few years and I actually do carry it some of the time. I still wouldn't want to have to try to shoot a qualification with my normal carry, it's not fun to shoot and I don't ever practice past about 7 yards with it.

I would allow it. But remember, you are not allowed to use optics, red dots, lasers, etc. Only open sights.

Yeah I knew about the no optics restrictions, honestly the shooting part of the class wasn't hard enough I would ever feel like I need that kind of advantage. It was more of a stray thought I had. Having shot the qualification already, I feel like I would have a reasonable chance of passing if I got to take a good look before every string then was blindfolded.

Not that I would expect it to happen often, but since there is no caliber restriction, could one use an AR pistol with a brace, and then since the atf has decided it's ok, shoulder it?
