Nra Rifle Instructor Certification
Posted 07 July 2008 - 07:49 AM
The course was well laid out and the NRA leaves nothing to chance in your education but man, you'd better show up prepared to go all out for 3 days! One of my biggest concerns was the range qualifications. After my lazik eye surgery in January, my vision has changed dramatically. I can no longer see the sights like I have always been used to nor can I develop the kind of sight picture I have always used. With some work and experimentation I have been able to adapt (though I wouldn't say it's as good as before) but this weekend was the test. Fortunately I passed all the range tests with flying colors using a .22 and shooting maximum 1 1/2" groups at 50' from standing free arm, standing arm rest, kneeling, sitting, prone and bench rest with the wind blowing a gale at the range.

(Was that a NRA life membership?)
I took my Colo CCW handgun class last fall and the guy's pestering me to take all the advance classes to be an instructor. Maybe when I retire. But I dont think I have the time right now. Heck I hadnt even got downtown to get the CCW permit yet, too busy doctoring and wiring up new truck for the camper and getting camper ready for scouting trip to Crested Butte at end of month.

I know what you mean about the Lasik vision change when seeing things up close to you. I did mine back in 2001 and sighting anything in (bow sights) takes some adaption but it will mentally get better as you adapt.
