I see a lot of posts made by individuals that carry multiple types and styles of guns. For instance the "carry rotation" which include a J-frame, a 1911, and a Ruger LCP. This forum has provided me with a lot of good info over the years on defensive shooting. Things such as mindset, tactics, and training. There is the saying “Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it." I am finding that there is a lot of truth in this statement. For many years I was one of the people that purchased a new gun every year and would head to the range to become proficient with it. I primarily stayed with the same carry gun and the other guns would get traded off or took on the role of bedside gun, etc. One thing I realized when I started reading this forum is that I needed to spend less money buying guns and more money on ammo. Messing with all the different guns really muddied up my training time which reflected on my proficiency with all of them. If I shot any of these guns slow fire then I could make some nice little groups at 21 feet. The issue was when I turned up the speed, my performance really suffered. About a year and a half ago I decided to stay with one gun for one year. The results were not immediate but I started to notice a difference after six months which was about 10 trips to the range. More recent training sessions are showing that my decision is really paying off as I can almost walk up and shoot well without having to shake off the rust.
