Regardless of your personal leanings, if you have taken the steps to become a firearms instructor, it is time to set your bias aside. There are tens of thousands of part-time or occasional firearms instructors in the United States.

If your local gun guru has a collection of M1911 pistols, quite often that is not only the gun with which they will demonstrate but also the one they will promote to their students.

Additionally, some people seeking instruction may be restricted by their agency or department in their choice of handgun.
