    I have completed the courses and paperwork to become a nationally certified NRA firearm instructor. As soon as I get my certificate and license number (about a month from now) I will be running at full speed toward the goal of educatingstudents on the safe storage, handling, and operation of firearms. I am certified in four (4) disciplines which include: FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation, Basic Pistol Shooting, Home Firearm Safety, and Personal Protection in the Home.

    I look forward to giving prospective CPL holders a complete and accurate understanding of their rights and responsibilities in the state of Michigan, or any other state I may end up doing a class. I am very excited andhope that this will be a very helpful tool in spreading the word about OC.

    CONGRAT'S... It's good to know that there will be another CPL instructor that is knowlagable about OC and won't give false info on it. I have the cridentials that you have , plus rifle/shotgun and im a range safety officer, and in a few month's I will have metalic reloading/ shotshell reloading / PPOH ( personal pertection outside the house ).

    If you ever need a RSO fora class, just let me know.

    Who was your TC?

    Thanks for the heads up on the RSO thing. I want to get PPOH as well. I was not aware until after my class and looking at the other stuff available that I could have done that as well.

    My TC is Mark Cortis.

    My TC was Joe Fischer, he's in houghton lake also. The PPOH is a really fun class. What i like about it is it is 2 days of shooting!!!! But to become a instructor, you have to take the student class ( 2days ) and then take it as a instructor ( 2 days ). I already took the student class, but im waiting to take the instructor class in a month or so.
