    Several- but you may need to be a bit more specific- rifle, pistol, shotgun, self defense, home defense, air defense, self propelled artillery?

    like c3 said there are several - NRA, LE, Military. Back when I first joined SGT Miller was posting some very informative videos. He dropped off for a long time but I recently saw some new posts from him in the last couple of weeks.

    Why do you inquire?

    What's your ulterior motive?

    Vague questions rarely receive the replies expected by the author.

    My motives are never hiden unlike most this day and age, including moderators. Integrity and honesty are still valued by some.

    Integrity ... one of my favorite words.

    So, what's up? Need instruction, giving instruction?

    I'm always looking for instruction. Been taking some classes locally from the same group and am looking into trying another group this month. Trying to stay local but may have to travel here soon.

    Mike, I asked you a simple question- what kind of instructor. I have been (past tense, retired) a military small arms instructor for a number of years. That has included pistol & revolver, M14, M16, M60, M79/ M203, M72 and AT4. I also used to do fairly well in teaching the 90mm and 106 recoiless, and the 8imm mortar.
