Micro Handguns, Mouse Guns, Pocket Rockets, Snub Noses; they go by different names and come in different types. We are talking about the litany of tiny .22, .380 pistols and snub nose revolvers that have flooded the market in the past several years. Typically, they come with a ~2 inch or shorter barrel, have limited capacity of 5 or 6 rounds, and are chambered in .380 auto for semi automatic guns or .38 special for revolvers.
With the rise of conceal carry, the proliferation of these tiny pistols has also risen. These guns don't operate or run like normal handguns. Their main advantage, due to their size, is the ease and comfort at which they can be concealed. Their main disadvantage is.............everything else. Difficult to shoot accurately and heavy on recoil, they also have a limited ammunition capacity and are generally chambered in less powerful rounds.
If you regularly carry a micro handgun as a primary firearm or as back up gun, come take a class that focuses on your needs.
Please note: there are no prerequisites for this course, that said we would discourage you from taking this as your first handgun course. Tiny guns are more difficult to handle and can easily discourage first time shooters (and leave them with a sore hand). Know what you are getting into before you sign up.
