Glad to be here, a little firearms background on me:
I grew up as a hunter. I still have my bolt action .270 win and 20 gauge Mossberg. I've always been interested in firearms, but spent too much time just trying to make enough money to survive to afford the time or capital to get further into it. Then I went to Iraq with my National Guard unit and had all the time I wanted to have good fun with all the firearms I could get my hands on. I learned alot, I learned that I'm good at teaching marksmanship and other skills I hope will be usefull to me. Since returning I've purchased a Mosin-Nagant M44 and a CZ-52. I enjoy both of them, and I am on the range at least once a week improving my procifiency.
I have done basic firearms training for several friends, and people that seemed obviously lost on the range. My last training session was a huge success, taking a young lady from afraid but willing to try, to keeping all her shots in the outer ring. She not only learned a little about firearms, but carried away more confidence in her own ability to learn new things. I desire to become an NRA certified instructor. I love teaching people firearms safety and marksmanship. I hope to develop it into a home-based business to support my own shooting habit.
