I chose the snub because it possesses two distinct virtues; it is small enough that I can regularly conceal it regardless of the season or the social situation and it is available in a caliber that most knowledge able shooters would consider a fair baseline for self defense.  If the snub did nothing beyond these two things it would still deserve a place as one of the great developments in self-defense history.

Having determined on my “one gun” I then went in search of those training methods and/or custom features that would help me wring out every self-defense advantage it had to offer. What follows is an overview of some of the information, resources and shooting drills I uncovered. I hope you enjoy the material but more importantly I hope you find it of some value.
