I took, and passed, my NRA Instructor's classes for Basic Instructor Training, Home Safety and Basic Pistol. The reason it's semi-official? It'll be four to six weeks before I actually get my stuff from the NRA and can start teaching.
My friend Tara and I have been talking about getting instructor certified for a while now so that we can teach classes to women. Not that we couldn't without the credentials, but people really want that piece of paper saying that we know what we're doing.
Besides, the classes were a good excuse to take a couple of days off work and go to the range.
