gauging interest in NRA Class

I will be getting my instructor certificate latter this month and am gauging interets in a CLSB class.

This will be an NRA certified coarse and it will be either a Basic Pistol Class or Rifle class.

I will also entertain holding more specific classes based on interest.

those specifics being:

AR15
Bolt Action Rifle
Advanced Handgun
and in spring reloading

Class prices and seating TBD. If they are large enough I do have a class rook available.


Right now just gauging interet.

Classes will either be in Munster IN or Hammond. Range and class in Hammond, Class only in Munster.

Arrogance has to be earned.

The NRA basic class is the newb class. Meaning safety, weapons familiarity (revolver, pistol, etc.), ammunition information, proper sight allignment. More fundamentals. It can be tailored by the instructor to revolve around the classes knowledge but must teach core essentials to meet requiremnts by the NRA.

That being said, one on one time is also available and that is determined by the needs of the individual. That can run the spectrum.

It's all what the individual wants and is willing to pay. time is $ but what's knowledge worth. At the same time I'm not gonna teach Pete the Greek how to breech doors no matter how much he'd be willing to pay.

this comment isnt direct to you Drama:

It is my sole discreation what I will teach anyone! And NO, if it's ILLEGAL dont even ask!
I will not teach a class on how to accuratly shoot while wearing nylons over your face!

Interested. I'm guessing there is a fixed syllabus and schedule. What is the time frame - several days, one day, a weekend, or whatever?

I'll be back in Chicago full time starting in May. Until then, if it's a weekend class, I'd fly in if I can.

Shooting with nylons on your face is not illegal. A little ghey, but not illegal. But what about shooting like the cool gang bangers do? I hear that by tilting the gun on its side I can hit all types of shit!
