Understanding The Learning Styles Of Your Students

Instructor firing pistolEveryone wants to be a firearms instructor until it’s time to do the “instructor” stuff. That’s what we’re here to discuss today.

While it’s important to be well versed in the methods you’re going to teach, the fun range time practicing and honing those skills is just the beginning. Now you must be able to transfer those skills to your students. Your mastery of the skills doesn’t help your students walk off the range better shots.

Are you a concealed carrier or lottery player?

I was in the grocery store the other day, wearing a polo with the company web address on the back, and our logo on the front that has the tag line “Professional Firearms Training”, so it was kind of obvious what I did for a living.  A man approached me wearing shorts and a form fitting t-shirt tucked into his waistline and asked me if I taught the concealed carry permit class. I told him that yes, I did. He proceeded to tell me that he’s had his carry permit for a couple of years now. Now, when he approached me, I looked him over and determined he wasn’t armed.

Situational Awareness

WikipediA (because we always cite unimpeachable sources) defines situational awareness as: “Situational awareness or situation awareness (SA) is the perception of environmental elements and events with respect to time or space, the comprehension of their meaning, and the projection of their status after some variable has changed, such as time, or some other variable, such as a predetermined event. It is also a field of study concerned with understanding of the environment critical to decision-makers in complex, dynamic areas from aviation, air traffic control, ship navigation, power plant operations, military command and control, and emergency services such as firefighting and policing; to more ordinary but nevertheless complex tasks such as driving an automobile or riding a bicycle.” read more

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shotgun shells, and carriers
Of rifled slugs, and slings”
