Good For You, Mick3411.

It sounds like you did a good job and had some fun as well. It takes dedication to stick with something you like and maybe teaching others is a new extension for you. My CCW instructor did a good job as far as I was concerned. I already had a good understanding of the safety rule, how a firearm works, and using common sense for many situations. Those participants that never fired a gun or even held one in their hands was virtual lost. The amount of information required to provide the students to pass the written test was pushed at the audience in the 16 hour class. Our range provided to those that took their class 5 hours of free range time to practice for the Qualification of the CPL. The Qualification pertained shooting a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper at 7 yards with 80% accuracy. Strong, support and 2 handed. Also provided was a quick lesson on how to shoot behind a barrier. 20 years later I am a much better shooter than I was when issued my first CPL.

Keep up the good work! It is very satisfying to help someone go from nervous newbie to confident shooter. You are doing a civic service in your community!

I appreciate the nice comments. I really do enjoy shooting and getting others prepared to help defend themselves.

I realize your giving a pistol certification class and not a legal briefing but people must be made aware of all the legal "pitfalls" of carrying, let alone, actually using/discharging a firearm.

My favorite example came from the South. A large dog got out of control and was trying to kill a woman. A Good Samaritan came by, shot the dog, and then left. Evening news praised his actions, police said he would not be charged but evidently, he preferred to be anonymous.

I live in CT and the public is a bit high strung. Situation: Late Night movie being shown in New Haven. Lawyer w legal CC license decided to carry. Evidently, he must have had some printing issues because someone saw it and called the police. The lawyer did not obey police commands quick enough or maybe he froze. He was arrested. No idea how it all ended up but it made the news and caused some whoopla & public outrage.

The legal aspects are included in proper NRA training classes. These are contributions by an LEO or an attorney. Before signing up for any NRA classes make sure that a recognized legal advisor will participate.
