Foreign horror needs accreditation!
 
Hey folks,

Iím looking into acquiring NRA accredited training (armourer and instructor) in the US for a generic automatic rifle course; but if this is not available then specifically the M4 and AK-47; and also similar (if applicable) for pistol.

Bearing in mind that Iím a Brit, does anyone know the laws or prerequisites surrounding this sort of thing?


I mean, Iíve only been using these bloody rifles since leaving the bloody army for about the last 10 or so yearsÖ and now all of a sudden I have to have a piece of bloody paper that says I can bloody load, bloody unload, bloody make ready and bloody well fire the damned thing bloody safely. :mad:

There is no restriction that I am aware of that will keep you from coming over and taking the NRA courses.

So... Who's bleeding? Put pressure on it! Just poking fun. I have nothing of value for this thread, please ignore me, I couldn't resist.

Thanks folks.
I'm looking at doing courses in NY over about two weeks in March/April.
Do I need to get any injections for there, and is it ok to drink the water? :D

The only thing you need to know is the food will taste a lot better. ;)

Just don't let any of the New Yorkers bite you. They all have rabies. And don't drink the water.....stick with the beer and whiskey. ;)

Just don't drink the Kool-Aid. NY is not the most gun friendly state like Utah or Arizona.

You might also check with Colt Defense Industries. They are the part of Colt that makes the M16 and M4 for the military/ LEO use. THEY may have some materials for you.

If you are in the far East now, you will feel right at home in a NY cab. May even recognize your cabby, Abdullah. :)
