Well said.
:iagree: Gregg Garrett, owner of http://www.Comp-Tac.com, is a fantastic instructor and I remember something he said many years ago. "The best instructors are those who are lifetime students." As instructors, if we stop taking courses/classes, the best we can do is teach what we know at the point we stopped being students. If that was twenty years ago, then we are two decades behind. Yes, the basics of shooting don't change, but teaching techniques, new equipment, etc. most assured do change. I'll start a new thread, but I just took a class taught by a recently retired HPD SWAT instructor and sniper instructor. It was an excellent course!

Re: NRA Carry Guard - Level 1 Training

Just as Scott honored the request not to disclose the Level I course in detail, I too cannot provide detailed information about Carry Guard training, instructors, etc. I can say this much. The Carry Guard training is an NRA course currently taught by people with special experience and skills. (I can't say more, but their credentials have been widely advertised.) Other instructors will be certified, but it will not be through the current TC structure, nor will anyone and everyone have the required underlying experience and skill set. Currently, any NRA instructor can become certified to teach almost any NRA course. (Advanced Pistol is different.) This will not be the case with Carry Guard.
