I'm thinking a .454 Casull Raging Bull.

Chopped54 I had two women in my class that came without guns and borrowed my 3" .45. They had never shot a gun before and had no issue qualifying.

srt-4_i_swear How about an AR or Ak pistol sure would piss the other people trying to qualify off.

What's wrong with the Colt that you wouldn't want to use it to do the shooting part of the test ?

I used a borrowed Glock 17 on my CHL test and it was just fine. However, the only reason I used a borrowed gun is because I had not yet bought the gun I currently carry.

If I were you, I would use the gun you plan on carrying to take your CHL test with. If you're not confident enough in the gun to use it for the CHL test, you shouldn't carry it.

Just my opinion, and I'm not talking shit to you or anything. So don't take my above post the wrong way.

I only put it that way because that's how the DPS site had it some time ago in their FAQ section.

no4njnk Someone stole my handgun and if I am going to get a CHL I feel I would carry a mouse gun a lot more than a larger pistol. I though I would get something like the Ruger or Taurus to carry but I may just borrow a friends gun to qualify. Rather be safe than sorry.

I only rented 1 gun in my life and it may have been my best round of shooting ever. Then again the XD9 is an easy gun to shoot.

I'd be extremely weary of qualifying with a rented gun. I guess it depends on how well you know the crew at whatever class you take. Still...the thought makes me nervous for some reason.

Yeah I guess I could some what see that maybe I'm just taking it for granted that a person would be exposed to both and understand the function.

Dunno. Probably just has to do with being able to handle an auto if it malfunctions, rather than a revolver?
