NRA Training Counselor

Tuesday December 6th, 2016

Today I was certified as an NRA Training Counselor, this is the highest level for instructors in the NRA Training world. It allows me to train others to become NRA Certified Instructors in the various courses that I do teach.

Beginning in January 2017 I will be scheduling courses for instructors. I plan to do one course in each major discipline (Pistol, Rifle, or Shotgun) every year.

I will also be doing courses like Range Safety Officer, which is authorized as i am a Chief Range Safety Officer myself.

These courses develop instructors, not better shooters.  If you are interested in helping to expand the sport, defend the Constitution and the Second Amendment, then you should consider becoming an instructor.  It's not an easy program but it is both fun and rewording.

Interested? Please email me for more information on specific courses.  You can also follow available courses on my calendar.

I am pleased to announce that I have become a membership recruiter for the NRA.

  • Whether you enjoy hunting, target or competition you need to support the NRA before you lose the right to enjoy your sport!
  • If you participate in competition, or just like to watch you need to support the NRA.  The NRA provides the largest competition event in the USA - the NRA Nationals.
  • The NRA supports the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts with firearm safety training.
  • The NRA is the oldest firearms training organization, dating to 1871.
If you don't support the NRA and it's activities you may lose them to the gun control lobby; and once lost you will never have them back, it's that simple.

And it's just as simple to enroll, or renew your membership.  Just click here or you can click on the tab at the top of the page.

It's that simple, and that important!

What's in your range bag?

Don't leave for the Range without it!

What's in your Range Bag?

These are questions every shooter has asked themselves since the first musket, and continue to ask to this day.
Like most of you I am always looking for a better range bag.  I carry a lot of things for is training courses and my own personal shooting.  Here is an article from that may help answer this question for you.

I have also reproduced an article from the 2015 Newsletter, detailing 10 things that you should have in your range bag. You can find this article on our Resource Page
