There’s no telling what could happen if you’re ever attacked, but there is one thing that can be counted on: you’re not going to be standing up with plenty of time to move into an isosceles position and draw your gun into a teacup grip. Self-defense shooting is far different than anything you’ll do standing in a lane at your local range, and you need to train accordingly. Some positions to consider firing from: lying on your stomach, lying on either side, lying on your back – yes, really, sitting down with both legs extended, kneeling, and kneeling with either knee raised. Find out what it’s like to fire from those positions and you’ll have a better idea what kind of training you have ahead of you.
These are lightweight 125 grain rounds, so they’re not going to increase your recoil, and that means you can spend more time firing your gun without sore fingers and hands. It also means each round moves down-range at a higher speed. These are FMJ rounds, so they won’t expand; this ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking, because some days you just want to drill holes in a bunch of pop cans. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at the muzzle velocity of 945 feet per second and impacts your target at a muzzle energy of 208 foot-pounds.
You get 1000 target rounds in this case of ammunition from CCI, and we think that’s pretty awesome. With 1000 rounds to feed your .38 Special you’ll be spending some serious time honing your marksmanship skills, and that means you’ll be all the more able to defend yourself. These are Blazer Brass rounds, and Blazer is a part of CCI; CCI was founded in 1951 and is located in Lewiston, Idaho, near the Snake River. CCI produces this ammunition in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, and that means these rounds can be reloaded, which means more trigger time for you. Order your 1000-round box right now and start training more realistically.
