I lead the security ministry at my church. I started this about 11 years ago when my pastor asked me to do so. We are all licensed Private Security officers as part of a larger company. This is very different than anything else I’ve done. In the Army, I was in the Infantry. More recently, I was a statistician for the federal government. I’m now fully retired, which gives me a lot more time at the range.
I am pretty agnostic about what people choose as a carry weapon or the type of ammunition they use. I will give my opinion if asked, but my general recommendation is that folks carry the gun they are most comfortable with and fire the best ammunition they can afford. There are always worse choices, but my observation is that most people have made up their mind before we ever talk, so I don’t get into arguments just to entertain them.
