no, here, you can qualify with say that .22.....that's all you get to carry.I don't know what state you live in, but in Texas, you can qualify with a .22 if you want and still carry anything you want. I think you used to have to qualify with a semi-automatic in order to carry a semi-auto. If you qualified with a revolver, you could only carry a revolver. But I think they have done away with that as well.
So, the lady might be totally correct. But I would not take her word for it, but check it out in the regulations.
if one qualifies with say a .50 caliber, now you can have anything under that caliber as your carry.
all the range safety guys, and the gal that teaches the ccw classes have said this. this is the reason why she (the ccw teacher) provides a .45 ACP, rather than say a .380 or 9 MM.
this gal that teaches the ccw classes, does it at my range and a few others, a Life Member of the NRA and is now a National Rifle Association-certified instructor. She teaches and offers basic pistol classroom instruction, hands-on live fire training and advanced classes, as well, as rifle, shotgun and muzzle-loading.
