Frequently Asked Questions Answered


Q. Do you offer ACT 235?

    A. Gunpowder & Lead, LLC does NOT offer Act 235 as that is offered and regulated through the Pennsylvania State Police only.  However, if you are looking to be ACT 235 Certified, we do offer private lessons that will help you get prepared for the class.

Q. How often should I train? 

     A. I suggest training as often as every other week for about 20 minutes, or 20 to 50 rounds. Training will be fresher in your mind, rather than the every other month warrior with 300 rounds to failure. 

Q. What does a USCCA Course mean?

    A. A United States Concealed Carry Association Course means you were trained by a Certified Instructor, Certified through the USCCA.  The courses taught by the Instructor are valid in other states that may be used for CCW, you can learn more by contacting our Staff. 

Q. What handgun is right for me?
   A. The correct answer:  What will you be utilizing the handgun for?  Sport shooting, self-defense, or hunting?  There are different tools for the different uses out there, and many could be used for all 3, but which one are you specifically looking for? 

     For Self-defense or concealed carry, I would suggest the smallest concealable handgun that you can manipulate in any circumstance for the size of your hands. Too large of a grip, could hinder your chances in concealability and function of handgun, too small of a grip in a larger hand, could hinder your chance of getting a firm grip and cause you to change your grip constantly throughout your self-defense situation, or even worse, dropping it.   There are many other idealists out there that state one gun is better than the other, but having ability to grip is important.
