Texas LTC Courses are not NRA Courses


Self-Defense Ammo Ballistics Test performed an extensive ammo test of the most popular self-defense rounds.  As I don't wish to detract from the excellent testing and write-up I will quote the article,


"Choice of caliber and bullet are not the most important aspects of successful self-defense. Awareness, proper mindset, marksmanship, and discernment of when to use your firearm are generally far more critical to your survival than choice of gear. Having said that, knowing your carry ammo works not only provides peace of mind, there’s a chance that choosing a solid defensive load could be the one factor that tips the scales in your favor in a fight for your life."
