    Be advised, young trooper, that rules of enguagement for troops and civvies are 180 out of sync. Best let those qualified in civvie shooting and tactics do the job here.

    In the same vein as one who would utter; "Everything Ah learnt, Ah learnt from myself!" (Simple case of zero multiplied by zero if you think about it.)

    If there are more of you out there with the same frame of mind..... I can readily understand the source of most "accidental discharges/woundings/killings". .... and the old observation goes; "Any damn fool can pull a trigger!" You, sir, are apparent proof of the hypothesis.

    Just sayin'.

    As disappointing as this may be to you, I am not one of those types. I was trained well by the United States Marine Corps about weapons safety and marksmanship. Also put them to use during countless training ops, as well as two combat tours to Iraq. So unfortunately I am not one of your "Back fourty" shooters. All I was suggesting way back when this post started was that a "NRA certified instructor" is not necessary for someone to lean these things. Sure I could have been more tactful in the way I expressed said reality, I surely didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings.

  5. didn't see that post right above my new one before i wrote my reply. However as stated, I was just arguing that a NRA certified instructor is not necessary. Also if you or I were to train someone Safety or how to shoot, doesn't mean that I would be preparing them for a trip to Afghanistan. I am not a licensed driving instructor but I can still teach my wife how to drive a stick shift because :GASP: I was taught how and can pass on that knowledge. I mean you were trained well especially if you were an RSO at some point. If you have kids are you going to teach them weapons safety and how to shoot, or are you going to send them to an NRA certified instructor..all im saying

    TL: I would send them to a certified instructor. Preferably a "hard and surly one". Good ol' Dad might not have the level of AWE necessary to instill the proper level of "responsibility" associated with firearm use, safety and discretion.

    Aside from that, the military is "taught" weapons use in rather a "Kill 'em all and let Allah sort them out!" fashion. Civilian weapons use is a bit different. ROE of an entirely different level.

    At least that is my semi-pro opinion of the matter.

    But first we would have to "capture" the "piece" and some ammo to make use of it. (Unless you happen to have one sandbagged in your secret armory, waiting for the revolution. LOL!) (If so, I want to be in your militia! LOL!)

    Bye the way, Lance, your analogy of "teaching someone to drive" doesn't hold much creditability considering the proliferation of non well trained drivers one tries to avoid being killed by on the roads these days. LOL!

    For another "reason" why I don't teach things any longer, even if I feel qualified to do so...... I have very little patience with "slow learners". I stopped teaching at our local Comm College for just that reason. I didn't really need the money and my frustration at trying to beat some "learnin'" into some of those "ticket punchers" got to be a little more than I was willing to put up with.

    A personal character fault I try to keep under control. I find, as I get older, my patience level lowers as I go along. Maybe it's because I see others trying to make some of the same mistakes I have made along the way. (Maybe that's why oldsters are always trying to give advice, to keep the youngsters from making the same, costly errors. Not that they listen at all! LOL!)
