    Female Pistol Instructors needed!

    So...you made the step into the 'guys' gun world and you did great. No more hurdles or funny looks on the range, no more "Here, I'll help ya shoot" comments either. Very nice. Now you can relax and get to practice or training to get better.

    What do you do after that?

    You can go find an IDPA or IPSC shoot and have fun.....

    You can go and talk all of your friends into getting handguns (or long guns) and learning to shoot - just like you did....

    What about----------------------becoming an NRA Certified Instructor?

    No way, you say?

    Why not?

    You've gained some valuable experience in your journey. You learned how much fun the shooting sports can be, so why not share that experience and teach more women to shoot?

    If you possess the basic Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude to safely handle and shoot a handgun, then you can become an instructor!!

    Rochester Personal Defense, LLC, one of New York State's biggest proponents of women in the shooting sports, is holding an NRA Pistol Instructor workshop on July 23, 24, and 25 (evening on July 23, and all day on the 24th and 25th) in Dansville, NY. The cost is low, only 200.00, but the experience and the confidence you will gain will be immeasureable!!!

    Visit the RPD, LLC website at: Rochester Personal Defense - SafeInRochester.com, Self Defense Classes, Firearms Training in Rochester New York for more information and to register.

    Feel free to call us at 585-749-7650 as well.

    We'd love to see you there!!!

    Unfortunately, they way NY laws are, it's tough for a non resident to come to NY and enjoy shooting unless you are coming for a competition.......I wish they had the exemption for training in an NRA course

    Hey Fondis, here's a link to NRA training info for ya:
    Become an NRA Certified Instructor

    I'm a Recruiter & Instructor and really enjoy sharing this critical knowledge. Everyone at the NRA have gone above and beyond to train and encourage me along the way.
    I agree with Rocketgeezer too, some of the best (relatively untrained) shots were females, many seem to be "lethal naturals"....lol

    Thanks to Dave for educating those NYers! Let us know if we can help at all from NC!

    I have another question about being an instructor....
    If my husband & I were to do some team teaching, or if he were assisting in my classes will he need to be certified too, or can we work off my certification?
    I did find a class coming up July 10-11, but I don't have enough $$ for both of us to go.

    Good ???....the NRA is very specific as you'll find during your upcoming training; they require anyone providing NRA instruction to be Certified. However, my husband is not yet Certifed but does provide invaluable non instructional support preparing & placing targets and acts as a 2nd set of safety eyes. He also acts as a demonstration volunteer and will model various holsters, grips, stances, etc for class as I discuss them. There's plenty he can help with while you're teaching, until he's Certified. Hope this is helpful, hollar if I can help at all!

    Thanks Crystal,
    I think I will proceed with this. I'm afraid I have one door about to close, and this could be the door opening on the other side for me. I also plan to go to Front Sight for pistol training this fall I want to be the best and safest shooter I can be.

    I signed up!

    I signed up for the class July 10-11!
    I didn't exactly have a spare $400 hanging around, but it doesn't look like there were are any other classes scheduled in my area for the rest of the year except one other next month that is $100 more than this one so I just did it.
    Wish me luck.
