Because that's all they had or all they were able to borrow... not everyone has a safe full of handguns to choose from. And a surprising number of people wait until after getting the LTC to buy a gun of their own.
Uhh - I didn't say that...that was Crossfire. I was commenting on bringing a AR pistol with shoulder stock or brace to the qualification. But for sure I do not know how one would handle a two shot derringer in the timed drills, not to mention 50 rounds of 45/410. My comments were toward practicality of the qualification firearm whether the participant intended to carry that weapon or not is not relevant. Although - I actually would be a little concerned about someone who showed up at qualification with a pistol AR with brace or shoulder stock (however legal) and intended to make that their carry weapon....

Re: Minimum Caliber for Handgun Proficiency Exam

Heck - I know that, nor am I oblivious to the whole BATF "brace" issue on pistol ARs. I also am aware of Medley86 just posting a straw man question/comment. I was simply asking, why, pray tell, would anyone even consider showing up at the range qualification with a short barrel AR with (or without for that matter) a brace?

I'll bite - why would you want to? How do you plan on packing that thing around dude?
