There are several types of firearms instructors to choose from. There’s the gun store salesman that calls himself/herself an instructor in order to trick you into paying for an infomercial to buy their guns. There’s the guy that’s “been around guns all his life” and has to try way too hard to prove it. There’s the highly talented shooter that’s lacks the ability to transfer skill. There’s the adult educator that champions multiple teaching styles to reach multiple learning styles. Don’t forget the instructors that have found a guaranteed revenue stream. There’s also the drive through window instructor that advertises a condensed introductory course…..because they don’t know enough about safety to teach a full course.
