.023"
.38 (0.357”) - 9mm (0.354”) = 0.003”

A .38 is actually .357” so I guess they let the 0.003” slide.

Re: Minimum Caliber for Instructor Proficiency

Instructors are held to a higher standard. Instructors must shoot both tests and score 90% or better whereas the students do not. I see the .38 minimum caliber as just a higher standard for the instructors.

Push off is when the hammer, in the cocked position, can be pushed forward with out the trigger being pulled.

You can shoot your revolver single action if you choose and can. I had a gentleman in my class that shot a SA Colt during qualifications and did it well.
