    Wish Me Luck

    I'm taking the NRA Instructors course tis coming up Friday. I've been playing around with the idea, but decided to take a shot at it.
    I figure it won't be a career change, but if it pans out I might make enough extra money to pay for shooting .45 on the range :-) From what I've been told, I pass this class, put my paperwork into the state and I'll be certified to teach the TN CCW class. I WON'T be starting my own school..don't need that kind of headache. I'm hoping when I pass the school I'm training through will let me teach through them. It'll also help me get over some of the "issues" in teaching people in my "regular" job in computers.

    Any tips or tricks from existing instructors would be gratefully accepted :-)

    Dont worry about it... a blind chimp can pass the NRA course. There is no need to get worked up over it.


    Oh yeah... good luck.

    I'm actually looking forward to it. I never thought about it, until I was in the NRA Personal Protection outside the home class through the same school and the instructor asked me about becoming an instructor. Hes ex LEO, Green Beret, etc. I took it as a "atta boy" to be asked by someone with his background.

    They allowed me to test out of the "basic pistol" part of the class, but they threw me a curveball. I took 2 1911s with me..and ended up shooting a Sig Mosquito :-)
    good for malfunction drills at the same time

    That is funny.

    Funny and correct.

    I am concerned when someone is only an NRA Instructor,
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
