Rob Pincus talks training with his M&P15-22 (VIDEO)

Rob Pincus runs ICE Firearm Training Services and is the author of books and DVDs to help people learn on their own time.

Training with .22s is somewhat controversial, as it doesn’t usually have the weight or recoil of centerfire cartridges, but right now when both guns and ammo are scarce, Pincus makes a decent argument for getting in some rimfire range time. It is nice that they’re lowering their ammo requirement for training sessions by 25%; that makes a world of difference.

The question then becomes: dedicated .22 trainer, dedicated .22 upper or .22 conversion kit?
