Minimum caliber for CHL course?

Postby Moonpie » Tue Feb 20, 2007 8:26 pm

Whats the minimum caliber that must be used for the CHL course?

I thought it was the .380Auto but I heard something about the .32acp is now allowable?

Thanks.

Another "Welcome" Moonpie.

.380 was indeed the minimum when law passed in '95 and DPS wrote the rules, but they reduced it to .32 after a very few years.

I wonder what would happen if someone showed up with a 7.62x25 or 5.7x28? :grin:

We had a guy take his course with his FN/ five seven. Interesting gun.

I'm not up on all of the mathmatecial conversions, but seem to recall that 6mm is right in there diameter-wise with .243 and 9mm is .355. So wouldn't that put 5.7mm well under .32 caliber?

You are right. I'm a goober. It could not have been a five seven, so I called one of the other guys. He said the student qualified with a CZ 52 in 7.62x25.

It's tough getting old..... :headscratch

Comprendo on the getting old. A real female dog sumtimes.

And hey, I've pumped a Dillion to stuff just enough .308s to think that 7.62 ain't quite .32 either. I promise not to tell Riddle. Some sleeping dogs are best left alone. ;-)

Yeah, I don't think the instructor even thought about it until after class was over and the guy had gone home.
