It's Semi-Official

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.

Seems like one of your silhouettes with a tight spread would be a good piece of paper that would show you know what you are doing.

DO NOT wait for your certificate to be mailed to you. Check nrahq.org for your credentials to be posted online in about a month. Your certificate can take a LOT longer. Andy and the guys are catching up so it will be closer to 4 weeks. And CONGRATULATIONS!!!
