    Wish me luck!

    Mods if this isn't the proper location please move this. Thank you. I have been keeping this under raps in case this falls through. Tomorrow I leave for what I hope will be 2 weeks at FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center) in Georgia. My police force is sending me down there to train as a Police Firearms Instructor. I'm a little nervous, two things may send me home early. My blood pressure has been up a bit recently and I have to qualify the first day on a course of fire I have never shot before. My police force does not have its own firing range so we can't practice much. My wife isn't thrilled with me leaving but she knows I'll be back. I'll let you guys know how it goes however it works out.

    Things will go well for you simply because you're committed. Your department obviously sees something in you for the intended position. Once you've completed the course, you'll be able to go home and to your department and start allocating funds for that range. They have to start funding the Firearms instructor no doubt. I hope I'm just not rambling here, but have you thought about contacting some of the major pistol manufacturers that might help support your department and their education? Those manufacturers have big money to put out to the right cause. Write some letters, e-mails. Ask questions---it can't hurt. I'll say a prayer for you, and that your nervousness and possible health issues won't be factors for any concern. Good luck to you.

    Good Luck and don't worry about it. Once you get there it will be easy for you.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like a blast.

    Oh no! Don't give me a job where I have to handle and shoot guns all day. Oh< and they pay for the ammo too. WHOO HOO!
