Firearms Instruction and a License to Learn
I passed my NRA pistol instructor course. The course and the instructors changed my mind about basic firearms instruction. I really didn’t intend to teach the general public when I started. I only wanted to be safe, accurate and effective when I brought friends to the range for the first time and let them shoot.
It seems obvious now, but you can’t learn to teach from a course. I’m now the proud owner of a license to learn.. from better instructors than I. I need to teach in order to learn how to teach. I have to go apprentice myself under good instructors if I want to teach well.
