6 Keys To Finding The Perfect Firearms Training For You

Do you want to learn how to shoot but don’t have any idea where to start? Finding the right instructor can be tough, especially if you’ve never fired a gun before. You also want to find an instructor whose teaching method matches your learning method.

If you’re a visual learner, you need one that’s going to take you to the range and show you how to do it step by step instead of wasting your time trying to explain it to you first. Maybe you prefer to stand at the back of the class and watch for a while instead of being the center of attention.

  • Every one wants to have the latest Rambo garbage, for home protection & all that. I have several weapons & only 1 weapon larger than .22 is semi auto. None are Commie crap. As the man said “… No self respecting American, would own an Ak or SKS junk. Nor are any of my knives made in China, Went to buy a Puma & saw that it was ‘assembled’ in China gave it back, told the clerk I don’t buy junk from China or Brazil. I have found many American made knives, Swedish, English & German, Japanese knives but not 1 made of crushed beer cans.
    BTW. my 30 cal is the light weight dependable accurate M1 Carbine. Not some spray & pray AK. All my other weapons are bolt & lever action form .22 to 45/70 & about every thing in between. Any thing that advertises as ‘Tatical’ is just high priced junk. As they have too many parts. Remember KISS, that’s the bolt & lever action weapon.
