Here are just some of the questions to ask yourself when considering gear for your rifle course.
What will be required of me?
What am I training for? Self-defense, Sporting, Hunting, Recreation? (Understand the nature of how you intend to use your weapon and where you intend to use it. Know your operational environment.)
Weighing the pros and cons of your gear. (In no particular order although we put safety first.)
Safety = (Is this product on the market because it is unsafe? Are people using it in an unsafe manner? Is additional training in the proper use of the product recommended, or required to operate it safely?)
Cost / Value = (Expense vs. longevity of use, and number of uses.)
Versatility (Can this one item be used for multiple situations (different operational environments, activities, or on other individuals besides myself?)
Functionality = (Will this product be able to perform the tasks that I need it to?
Reliability = (Is this product going to function when I need it to?)
Durability = (Is this product going to last me for as long as I want it to?)
