Not an instructor but I ive taught several females to shoot. I honestly dont care if they are standing on one foot if they can quickly draw fire and hit what they are shooting at consistently. Or with a long gun employ it get a sight picture quickly and score good hits round after round. Maybe im a bit to practical minded but that is the end result we are looking for is it not?
I am also an instructor. As for the NRA Basic Course, I have two primary goals. First, is that the student be safe. Second, that they end the range portion of the course being competent. I make it very clear to the student that "competent" does not mean good. Good comes with time, practice, and depending on "how good" they want to be, additional instruction. I keep my classes very small, no more than three students at a time. (Thus, this is not a money making job.) it has been my experience that students who do not understand and apply the fundamentals, generally do not do so well in hitting "what they are shooting at consistently" as stated above. And, by the way, drawing and firing from a holster is not part of the NAR Basic Course. Might be one of the reasons we call it a "basic" course.
