One thought on “Instructors

  1. Ken,
    I first came across you via your Blackman With A Gun podcast.
    Until this year I never bothered listening to podcasts. Now I am about to release my first podcast (Self-Protection Essentials), and I’m listening to “everything” I can get my hands on.

    Ken, Thank you for all you do. Yours is one of the podcasts that I continue to listen to.

    I heard you mention that you are looking for instructors.
    I am a Lifetime NRA member and a NRA certified instructor (169672514)
    At this time I am only NRA certified as a basic pistol instructor. I will be adding more certifications soon.

    I teach Florida Concealed Weapons Permit classes.
    I also teach: basic safety; 1st time shooters; marksmanship.
    For a CWP, Florida requires that the student show Safety and Proficiency. They do not define what those terms mean.

    Some instructors translate that into classes with 20-40 attendees, 30 minutes of basic safety and a 1 round trip to the range, or a shoot tank, or a pellet gun
    (this is a gun. this is a trigger. the bullets come out this hole when your finger pulls the trigger. keep your finger off the trigger. don’t shoot me. don’t shoot yourself…… at the range there will be a gun on the counter, there will be a large piece of paper 3 yards away. when I tell you, pick up the gun, point it at the paper, pull the trigger and put the gun down. if you put a hole in the paper, without putting a hole in me or yourself, see sara on the way out to get your state approved class certificate.)

    THAT IS NOT ME!!!
    I keep my classes small. I teach the NRA curriculum. My class is about 4 hours long. My students know about safety, and Florida firearms law. By the time we leave the range, my students have a proficiency high enough for my to feel safe with 80% of my students taking the shot to save my life (if they had to… if a bad guy was behind me with a gun to my head)

    I would be honored to be on your list of approved instructors.

    I also teach people how to stay safe without a firearm.
    I teach people how to stay safe from those that would physically harm them. My desire is for them to be able to get 5 seconds of free time, to get to someplace safe… even against the biggest, baddest person they’ve met in the passed few weeks.

    I am a 3rd degree black belt in Okinawan Karate (Uechi-ryu karate)
    I am on the national board of directors for my style.
    I am a black belt in traditional martial arts weapons

    Here is my contact information….
