Ring's Blue Guns and ASP Red Guns

Top 10 Training Guns in 2012

We just ran a report of our training gun sales over the last year (August 2011 through July 2012), and thought it would be interesting information to share here on our blog. A few of the surprising facts were that 8 out of 10 of the training guns are Ring’s Blueguns, 5 of the top 10 are Glocks, and Ruger is well represented with the LCP at 7, LC9 at 9 and the LCR was at 11. The ASP Red Guns didn’t make an appearance until the 19th spot with their Smith and Wesson M&P training gun. Also, the first weighted training gun didn’t appear on our rankings until 91, with the Springfield XMD Weighted Version by Ring’s Blueguns.

Top 10 Training Guns

1. Glock 17 / 22 Ring’s Blue Gun (FSG17)

The top spot belongs to the Glock 17 Blue Gun, with almost twice the sales of the #2 spot, and around 6 times the sales of the #10 spot. Because of the close similarities, this can also be used for training with a Glock 22 or Glock 31.

2. Glock 19 Ring’s Blue Training Gun (FSG19)

With almost double the sales of the #3 spot, the Glock 19 training gun by Ring’s took the #2 spot. This one also work for training as a Glock 23 or Glock 32.

3. Blackhawk Tactical Glock 17 Orange Demo Gun (BH-44DG)

Blackhawk Tactical has a very limited selection of just the most popular weapons, but they make a quality training gun at an extremely competitive price over the blue and red training guns.

4. Ring’s Training Knife (FSTK)

Not technically a ‘Training Gun’ but the blue training knife by Ring’s was #4 on our list. A lot of combat training requires disabling and removing weapons from attackers, and having a non-sharp knife to simulate the combat with is a must.

5. 1911 Blue Training Gun (FS1911)

The 1911 and it’s variants is one of the most mass produced pistols in history, making the 1911 blue gun our fifth best selling training gun over the last year.

6. Blackhawk Tactical Glock 17 Gray Training Gun

The gray version of the Glock 17 demo gun that was already #3 on our list. Combining the orange and gray versions would have moved the Blackhawk Glock 17 training gun up to the seconds spot on our list.

7. Ruger LCP Blue Training Gun (FSLCP)

Ruger was well represented on our list, and they come in at #7 with the LCP.

8. TASER X-26 Blue Training Gun (FSX26)

With the TASER’s increasing role in law enforcement over the last decade, the sales of the X-26 TASER blue training weapon have increased every year since it was released.

9. Ruger LC9 Blue Training Gun (LC9)
