I’m now an NRA Certified Instructor!

Class completed, tests taken and passed (100%, 98%, and 98%!  I’m so proud of myself!), and paperwork submitted with cheque. I am now an NRA certified instructor in Basic Pistol and Home Firearms Safety! My credentials will arrive in the mail within the month, then I can send out for my Mass State Police certified instructor credentials, which takes about a month.

After that, I can start offering both the NRA Basic Pistol and the NRA Home Firearms Safety courses.  I’m really excited.

There is a downside, though…   Bill and I discovered we need to buy more guns!  We don’t have a .22 revolver or a .22 semi-auto.  We don’t have a bolt action rifle, or a pump action shotgun, or a break action shotgun!  Oh noes!  We must buy more guns, what’s a girl to do?



  1. Good to hear it and proud of you. I will take my classes next month(July 09). Can’t wait. My goal is to teach the SC CWP course.

    • Thank you! The worst part has been getting the actual paper-certifications.. completed the requirements at the beginning of March, I’m JUST showing up in the NRA databases as an instructor, but still have not yet received my credentials. And I can’t start teaching for the state of MA and have it count for LTC courses til I’ve submitted my NRA credentials to the Mass State Police to get their certification number. At least that’s automatic with the NRA certification. Just more time to wait, and more hoops to jump through.
