    On Friday 5/17/02 I finally recieved my NRA Instructor certification for pistol, rifle, shotgun, as well as NRA Trainer certification. I have to say I was thrilled... only to come home and find the website down. I forgot to even mention it until now, for obvious reasons, given the status of the website. The certificate was signed by Ed Land, a name I think a few members of this website may recognize. The instructor certification is the hardest thing I've ever persued in all my years of shooting. I'm glad I finally got it...

    Why not post this under "Awards Received?"


    That's a big accomplishment! Why not post this under "Awards Received?" I believe it's a significant enough achievement to qualify.

    Thanks guys, I guess I've got to talk Chris into giving me an award now! I will have to say that after going through 3 armorers schools, this was by far the most difficult thing I've ever persued. The NRA's Instructor ceritfication tests are no joke, and if you're taking four in a day... well the only thing I can compare it to is the SAT or some form of scholastic AP exam... I highly reccomend it to all our members. I have never seen a firearms curriculum that deals with safety like the NRA's. The curriculum begins with safety and ends with safety in every lesson. I was thrilled with the experience and encourage everyone who reads this to look into NRA based training and instruction.

    Well guys it's been almost a year now and I'm thinking about teaching an NRA Basic Pistol class. I meant to coach an event this winter but the weather was too bad.
